Upgrade your old rain cone! The Davis Iinstruments 6462 replacement AeroCone kit includes the rain cone, bird spikes, debris screen and Davis logo. 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. Compatible with all models of the Vantage Pro and Vantage Pro2 Integrated Sensor Suites.


  • Reduces wind-induced errors
  • Molded holders for the included stainless steel bird spikes
  • Improved debris screen locks into place
  • Molded holder for an additional bird spike for debris screen
  • New designed interior walls of AeroCone reduce splash out during high rain conditions
  • Davis logo on AeroCone

5 stars just what I wanted
This cone kit fit perfectly on the base. The previous one had blown away, and I was worried that it would not fit. Fingers crossed this one will stay put!

5 stars Replacement rain gauge cone.
This component of the rain gauge does seem to do much better in the high winds we experience on the Oregon coast. I am comparing it with a standard rain gauge

5 stars quality and dependability
We own two complete Davis vantage Pro wireless units in our two homes As the saying goes "you pay for what you get". The Davis Pro has experienced -20 F degrees weather and logged 80 MPH wind and kept going with no problems.

5 stars Rain AeroCone Review
I have an ancient Vantage Pro 2 array and it has provided many years of good weather information to me. I do like the fact that component modules can be replaced, sometimes with updated equipment. The original rain collector on my unit collected items unrelated to rain...think bird guano. The new collector has a wicked set of spikes to deter birds, including one for the filter at the bottom of the cone. Ouch. I love birds, but no nesters need apply for habitation in my cone. The AeroCone has been installed for a week or so now. No bird debris inside, no skewered birds on the spikes, so I am happy. As to its effectiveness as an accurate rain collector, I assume that Davis knows what is doing. I would recommend this upgrade for the Vantage Pro 2 system. My next purchase may be the new Davis rain counting device under the AeroCone because I am running out of reed switches. Ha!
