Only the heated rain gauge has terminals 4, 5, and 6 for the heating power. You may need a separate power box for a heated rain gauge.

After wiring the sensor and connecting it to WXT536, you can configure the analog input through Vaisala Configuration Tool.

To open the configuration window, select Settings > Analog inputs.
