DESCRIPTION

OVERVIEW

If you're looking for a superior cabled weather station, the Davis Cabled Vantage Pro2 Plus Weather Station is as good as they come! A wireless version of this model is also available. Vantage Pro2 offers the professional weather observer and the serious weather enthusiast rugged performance. You'll get your own local forecast, highs and lows, totals or averages, and graphs for virtually all weather variables over the past 24 hours, days, months or years on the included Vantage Pro2 console. Vantage Pro2 is also an excellent choice for emergency professionals, farmers, schools, researchers, municipalities, and others to monitor wind and moisture conditions, irrigation requirements, and potential flooding.

A key factor that set the Vantage Pro2 apart from many other complete weather stations is the refresh rate.:

  • Refresh Rate - A packet of data is sent from the outdoor transmitter to the receiver every 2 1/2 seconds! This means when you look out the window and see the wind blowing, the weather station will reflect it almost immediately.

The Davis Vantage Pro2 provides extensive additional information for each weather variable. These include daily highs and lows, temperature changes by the hour, air pressure changes and astronomical data such as moon phase and meteor showers.

To make viewing weather data easier at night, Davis designed the Vantage Pro2 console with an easy-to-read backlit LCD display. A data collecting device in its own right, the console's built in sensors provide indoor temperature and humidity as well as barometric pressure measurements. The Vantage Pro2 6162C outdoor Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) is powered by a cable that is connected to the ISS and the indoor console.

Vantage Pro2 Plus models include two additional sensors:

  • Solar Radiation Sensor measures solar radiation and solar energy. You can display solar radiation, highs for the day, month, and year as well as evapotranspiration and Temp/Hum/Sun/Wind (THSW) index, and set alarms for high readings. The diffuser element and housing are carefully designed for accurate cosine response. Silicon photo diode provides good match to solar spectrum. Two-piece housing minimizes radiation heating, allows convection cooling of the sensor, and prevents the trapping of water or dust.
  • UV Radiation Sensor measures the sunburning portion of the UV spectrum. Allows you to display UV index, UV index for the day, the daily, monthly, and yearly highs; or change scale to see UV in current, hourly and daily MEDs, dose rate, and daily and accumulated dose. You can also set an alarm to warn of high UV dose/index. Multilayer filter provides a spectral response that closely matches the Erythema Action Spectrum. Diffuser provides excellent cosine response. Two-piece housing minimizes radiation heating, allows convection cooling of the sensor, and prevents the trapping of water or dust.

You can set over 70 alarms on the Vantage Pro2 for multiple functions simultaneously. You can view over 80 graphs including additional analysis of temperature, rain, rain rate, wind, and barometric pressure. The ticker-tape display shows forecast details and additional information with over 100 different messages.

To view your weather data either on a PC, MAC or to stream the data to the online cloud you may purchase a WeatherLink data-logger and upload near real-time weather information.

All Davis Vantage Pro2 Complete Weather Station models include:

  • Console with AC power adapter. The console may also be powered using three C batteries. Batteries should also be added to the console for backup during power outages.
  • Integrated sensor suite with rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors, and anemometer. The temperature and humidity sensors are integrated beneath the rain collector (very nice).
  • 40 foot (12 meter) anemometer cable. The anemometer connects to the Sensor Interface Module (SIM) on the side of the rain gauge.
  • AeroCone with bird spikes. The AeroCone rain collector reduces wind-induced errors by providing a more aerodynamic path around the collector. Its contours are designed to streamline the airflow and reduce flow distortions. The design improves rain data accuracy in high wind situations where the horizontal wind velocity can cause under reporting. The inside of the rain collector is equally well designed, keeping intact the carefully engineered interior walls that reduce splash out during high rain conditions. The new debris screen locks into place, ensuring that it remains in place during high winds and heavy rainfall events. The rain collector has optional spikes that can be installed to avoid potential nesting.

The Vantage Pro2 6162C includes a 100 foot (30 meter) cable that connects the sensor suite to the console.

Note: We do carry magnetic compasses to help you orient your anemometer to true north. Those can be located under the "Accessories" tab. For more information on set up, please visit the anemometer page on our WeatherShack education center.

I just received my Vantage PRO2 Plus and Rain Collector Heater, would love to get it set up but Old Man Winter is here. I would like to set up as soon as possible but could take awile. Every thing looks great, and I'am hoping my wife will get me a web kit for my birthday. Can't wait.
