- What's Included
A wireless weather station with a versatile sensor suite that combines the rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors and anemometer into one package. You can customize your Vantage Pro2 by adding consoles or the special-purpose options.
This station include two components: the Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) which houses and manages the external sensor array, and the console which provides the user interface, data display, and calculations. The ISS and Vantage Pro2 console communicate via an FCC certified, license free, spread]spectrum frequency hopping (FHSS) transmitter and receiver. User selectable transmitter ID codes allow up to eight stations to coexist in the same geographic area.
The frequency hopping spread spectrum technology provides greater communication strength over longer distances and areas of weaker reception. The Wireless Vantage Pro2. Plus weather station includes two additional sensors that are optional on the Vantage Pro2: the UV sensor and the solar radiation sensor. The console may be powered by batteries or by the included AC power adapter. The wireless ISS is solar powered with a battery backup. Use WeatherLink.
This model relies on passive shielding to reduce solar radiation induced temperature errors in the outside
temperature sensor readings.
Available in both wireless and cabled versions (each sold separately).
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).
Integrated sensor suite includes rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors, anemometer, 40 feet (12 meters) anemometer cable, and solar panel. Electronic components are housed in a weather-resistant shelter.
Wireless range is up to 1000 feet (300 meter) outdoors, line of sight. Typical range through walls under most conditions is 200 feet to 400 feet (60 to 120 meters). Add wireless repeaters for distances up to 1.7 miles (2.7 km).
This weather station features a Standard Radiation Shield, and is a similar station to Vantage Pro2 with 24 hour Radiation which has a Radiation Shield and 24 hour Fan Aspiration (sold separately).
