Country of Manufacture United States
Explanation

These rugged Davis Vantage Pro2 weather stations are designed to offer years of service. They are the only weather station in their class offering sensors manufactured to a traceable accuracy.

The wireless transmission far out performs and updates more frequently than any similar weather stations. Using frequency hopping spread spectrum radio technology at 868mhz it transmits weather data every 2.5 seconds up to 300m.

The Integrated Sensor Suite is solar powered with its electronic components housed in a weather-resistant shelter. All the outdoor electronic components are specially designed to resist the effects of exposure to the atmosphere.

This FARS system includes a 24 hour solar powered fan for even greater accuracy as part of the radiation shield. This feature is ideal for hot & humid climates as the FARS combines active and passive aspiration to minimize the effects of radiation.

Contents

Integrated sensor suite includes rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors, anemometer, 12 m anemometer cable, fan assisted radiation shield (FARS) and solar panel. Electronic components are housed in a weather-resistant shelter.

Installation

Installation is very simple and can be carried out by almost anyone with a few basic tools. The only thing you should remember is to take care if you have to work at height.

The outdoor sensor suite and anemometer are supplied with U clamps for a 45mm Ø pole and coach screws for a post or wall. Larger U clamps can be used up to 65mm Ø

Installations options such as tripods and mounting pole kits are available from our Installation Kit pages.

For suggestions about installation please see our knowledgebase.

Davis weather stations require very little maintenance and do not require regular recalibration. This section of our knowledgebase explains what is required.
