All five instruments on the station locate into a specially designed, durable housing. The dry-wipe surface allows previous recordings to be displayed. All of the instruments have a permanent, easy-to-read scale. The barometer, compass and hygrometer have an additional less complex scale with the reverse blank. Both the max/min thermometer and the standard thermometer are exceptionally easy to use and completely safe. A weather booklet and a set of instrument name labels in several European languages are included.
