Vantage PRO2 Wireless Weather Station 

First and only weather station in its class to use frequency hopping spread spectrum radio technology to transmit weather data wirelessly up to 1000' (300 m).

Includes Vantage Pro2 console/receiver, integrated sensor suite, and mounting hardware. Integrated sensor suite includes rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors, anemometer, 40' (12 m) anemometer cable, and solar panel. Electronic components are housed in a weather-resistant shelter.

Sensor suite is solar powered. Electronic components are housed in a weather-resistant shelter. Console may be powered using the included AC-power adapter or with three C batteries (not included).

Wireless range is up to 1000' (300 m) outdoors, line of sight. Typical range through walls under most conditions is 200' to 400' (60 to 120 m). Add wireless repeaters for distances up to 1.7 miles (2.7 km).

Davis Instruments 6152 Wireless Vantage Pro2 with Standard Radiation Shield transmits and receives data from up to 1,000 feet away (line-of-sight) - that's more than three football fields in length!

This high-tech wireless weather station has all the features that made the original Vantage Pro so famous, yet adds more such as button realignment to make navigating to often-used functions much easier; a redesigned rain collector that is laser-calibrated to ensure the best accuracy possible; and a re-tooled Integrated Sensor Suite with upgraded electronics.

The wireless Vantage Pro2 also has a fifth radiation shield plate to improve accuracy and readings.

This model of the classic weather station consists of a console unit and an innovative integrated sensor suite that includes a rain collector with self-emptying bucket, temperature and humidity sensors and an anemometer. The sensor suite is housed inside a radiation shield, protecting the sensors against solar radiation and additional sources of reflected and/or radiated heat.

In addition, this wireless weather station will track highs and lows (and/or totals and averages) for almost all weather variables for the past 24 days, months or years and track your local forecast!

With the expanded transmission range that can be extended with optional repeaters, the wireless Vantage Pro2 weather station includes an anemometer that can be mounted with the sensor suite or detached and placed in a separate location. The system includes 40 feet of anemometer cable to run back to the sensor suite for increased flexibility.

The Vantage Pro2 weather station from Davis Instruments includes a solar-powered sensor array and other features such as on-screen graphing, forecasting using easy-to-read icons (sunny, cloudy, rain, snow), barometric pressure trend, inside temperature, dew point, humidity information, time and date, and much more!

Vantage Pro2 weather stations are simply perfect for amateur weather hobbyists and weather professionals alike!
