DESCRIPTION

OVERVIEW

The Davis Instruments 6318 Wireless Envoy8X can log data from up to 8 different transmitters, in any combination, and report to a weather database. With 32 times the memory of the Davis Weather Envoy, Envoy8X receives and logs data simultaneously from up to eight transmitting stations, in any combination - even eight Integrated Sensor Suites or eight Leaf Wetness & Soil Moisture Temperature Stations! That means you can get data from 32 soil moisture sensors on one Envoy8X! Includes robust software that allows for data from many sensors and multiple Envoy8Xs to produce very large databases in Microsoft Access®, MySQL®, or Microsoft SQL Server®. You select which sensors to log, and choose a logging interval from 10 seconds to 2 hours. Use archive intervals as small as 30 seconds. You can even add select third-party sensors that report readings in a 0-3 volt range. Data can be easily exported to a spreadsheet program such as Excel®, or to WeatherLink to take advantage of WeatherLink's graphing and reports.

Storage capacity depends upon the logging interval, but is so large that you can download a remote field installation when it's most convenient. For example, an Envoy8X logging two Integrated Sensor Suites and two Soil Moisture/Leaf Wetness stations at a 15-minute update interval will store over 365 days worth of data.

Envoy8X has built-in temperature and humidity sensors, as well as a barometer. The software will report data from those sensors as "inside" data, effectively giving you a ninth "station." Receives data from all Vantage Pro2 radios and repeaters. Includes an AC-power adapter; may also be run using Solar Power Kit (6614), or on three AA batteries. Expected battery life is one to four months depending on the logging interval. This unit does not retransmit. Not compatible with Vantage Connect or cabled sensors.

Please note: The Envoy8X requires a WeatherLink data-logger (6510USB or 6510SER) and software, which is NOT included.

I completely misunderstood the purpose of the Envoy8X. I wanted to set up my Davis console in one room for viewing and use the Envoy attached to the computer for uploading data via a weather station program to the web. It doesn't work that way. Weather Station software will NOT connect to the Envoy8X through the data logger supplied with WeatherLink. The only software that will connect to it is an enclosed data transfer utility which will do nothing more than either create an MS Access database on your local machine to store once per minute readings or a MySQL database on a remote server to which it will upload its information. Again, WeatherLink software or other station software will NOT connect to this unit: I hope that statement saves somebody the several hours of frustration I spent messing with USB and serial drivers, thinking that the problem was with the computer. The Envoy works fine for its intended purpose, but station software is available that will also upload weather data to a MySql database as part of its function for half the price.
