The Davis Instruments 6466 AeroCone Rain Collector can be used as a stand-alone custom rain station or to replace an existing rain gauge for the Vantage Pro2 integrated sensor suite. 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 debris screen locks into place, ensuring that it remains in place during high winds and heavy rainfall events. Features tipping spoon technology that increases accuracy and precision for measuring rainfall. The new spoon increases the accuracy from 4% to 3%.

As a replacement rain gauge it is compatible with the following:

  • Vantage Pro2 Weather Stations: 6152, 6152C, 6153, 6162, 6162C & 6163
  • Vantage Pro2 Sensor Suites: 6322, 6322C, 6323, 6327, 6327C & 6328

As a stand-alone custom rain station you'll need one of the following configurations (additional purchase required):

  • Configuration with display console: Sensor Transmitter and a Vantage Vue or Vantage Pro2 console.
  • Configuration with online (cloud) viewing: Sensor Transmitter and a WeatherLink Live hub.
  • Rainfall range:
    • Daily Rainfall: 0.00" to 99.99"
    • Total Rainfall: 0.00" to 199.99"
  • Rain increments: 0.01"
  • Tipping spoon accuracy: 0.3%
  • Update Intervals: every 20 to 24 seconds
  • Reports in inches
  • 16 3.5" bird spikes (optional)
  • 40 ft cable
  • Mounting hardware
  • 9.25" x 10.25" x 11"

5 stars Product matched what I needed.
It took about an hour to replace the entire structure. I was expecting a simpler installation by replacing the gauge only. That involved removing the whole weather station and reinstalling the equipment onto the new rain gauge aparatus.

5 stars The same rain gauge as the Vantage Pro2, only remote mounted
The remote rain collector is exactly like the one that comes with the weather station only it includes 40 ft of cable and has the updated single tipping spoon design. In my case the weather station is located 5 stories up on the roof of a beachfront condo building. The wind and temp sensors work great in the location, but it's often so windy that rain passes horizontally over the rain collector and it was only recording about 40-60% of the rain a compared to a ground mounted manual rain gauge. The remote rain collector allows me to locate the rain sensor about 20 feet away in a spot that is sheltered from the wind but still has good exposure to falling rain. I am still testing to find the best location, but already the rain readings are much closer to the manual gauge. It's a little pricey, but the only game in town if you have a David Vantage Pro2 and need a remote rain gauge.
