Download software and drivers for your WeatherHawk

WeatherHawk 500-Series Firmware

This download applies only to 500-series weather stations. In general, you should not update the OS in a WeatherHawk. We provide this firmware in the unlikely event that your OS and/or Program are corrupted and need to be reinstalled.

WeatherHawk 500-Series Firmware (cr2osv09.a43)

Before updating a 500-Series weather station, you must verify that your station's sensor head is a WXT520. The sensor head series will be labeled underneath the rim of the top of the sensor (see image below). If your sensor head does not say "WXT520", you must return your station to the factory for the OS/Program update.

To check the WeatherHawk OS and data logger program you must use a PC to communicate directly with the weather station.

If you are doing a general update of your firmware for other reasons, DO NOT USE this OS and Program if your WeatherHawk has been modified for a special application, or if it connects to a WeatherTalk system, or if it is wireless and has the V.04a, or earlier operating system. Updating the OS in very early versions of a WeatherHawk wireless system will disable the RF module and it will have to be replaced. For modified WeatherHawk system OS and program updates contact WeatherHawk Technical Support directly.

To determine your OS and Program versions follow these steps:

  1. Close all programs on your PC and connect directly to your WeatherHawk weather station RS-232 serial port.
  2. Open the Device Configuration Utility data logger communications program supplied with your software. If your software is Virtual Weather Station (VWS) this is located at: C:vwsWeatherhawkDevConfig.exe. If your software was installed in a different directory or you are using WeatherHawk-XP/X software you can use the Windows search function to locate devconfig_wh.
  3. On the DevConfig WH software menu sidebar select WeatherHawk
  4. Select the communications port
  5. Select Connect
  6. Select the Data Monitor tab at the top and select the status table on the left. You will see the name OSversion.
  7. The current OS Version should be: cr2osv09.a43

If you have a 500 Series that does not have a WXT520 sensor head, the system must be returned to the factory for the OS/Program update.  Please contact WeatherHawk Technical Support to obtain an RMA before returning products for update.
