OVERVIEW

If you're looking for a superior weather station, the Davis Vantage Pro2 Weather Station is as good as they come! Vantage Pro2 offers the professional weather observer and the serious weather enthusiast rugged performance and a wide range of options and sensors. You'll get your own local forecast, highs and lows, totals or averages, and graphs for virtually all weather variables over the past 24 hours, days, months or years - all without using a PC. Vantage Pro2 is also an excellent choice for emergency professionals, farmers, schools, researchers, municipalities, and others to monitor wind and moisture conditions, irrigation requirements, and potential flooding. It can be customized with a range of add-on options, such as additional temperature and humidity sensors, soil moisture stations, and long and short-range repeaters.

Two key factors that set the Vantage Pro2 apart from many other complete weather stations are the refresh rate and the transmission distance:

  • Refresh Rate - A packet of data is sent from the outdoor transmitter to the receiver every 2 1/2 seconds! This means when you look out the window and see the wind blowing, the weather station will reflect it almost immediately.
  • Transmission Distance (wireless models) - The first in its consumer price range to use frequency hopping spread spectrum radio technology, the Vantage Pro2 can transmit and receive data up to 1000' (300 m) line of sight. This is a much greater distance than most other weather stations. This technology also provides improved reception through multiple walls and greater immunity from RF interference.

The Davis Vantage Pro2 provides extensive additional information for each weather variable. These include daily highs and lows, temperature changes by the hour, air pressure changes and astronomical data such as moon phase and meteor showers. Additional consoles can be purchased for placement in other areas of your home such as a den, bedroom or backyard.

To make viewing weather data easier at night, Davis designed the Vantage Pro2 console with an easy-to-read backlit LCD display. A data collecting device in its own right, the console's built in sensors provide indoor temperature and humidity as well as barometric pressure measurements.

The Vantage Pro2 6153 outdoor Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) is energized by a solar panel during the day and stored energy for power at night, making it an ideal product or gift for the "green" consumer. The Davis 6153 also includes Davis Instruments patented 24-hour Fan-Aspirated Radiation Shield for maximum accuracy of temperature and humidity readings. The system has additional radiation shield plates and a second solar power panel, which powers a motor-driven fan. The fan draws air through the sensor chamber 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Airflow across the sensors is 500 feet per minute (2.5 m/s). At night, when the effects of radiation are less, the solar-powered model runs on battery power and the airflow is 280 feet per minute (1.4 m/s). In far northern or southern latitudes, or in areas with extended periods of heavy cloud cover, there may not be enough sunshine to power the fan or recharge the battery during the winter. However, as the level of sunlight goes down, the need for fan aspiration also diminishes. The fan will start running and the battery will recharge as soon as sufficient sunlight returns.

You can set over 70 alarms on the Vantage Pro2 for multiple functions simultaneously. You can view over 80 graphs including additional analysis of temperature, rain, rain rate, wind, and barometric pressure without a computer. The ticker-tape display shows forecast details and additional information with over 100 different messages. You can even link it to your PC via Vantage Pro2 WeatherLink software and upload near real-time weather information to your website.

The Davis Vantage Pro 2 6153 model include:

  • Console with AC power adapter. Wireless console may also be powered using three C batteries. WeatherShack includes complimentary shipping and batteries on all orders.
  • Integrated sensor suite with rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors, and anemometer. The temperature and humidity sensors are integrated beneath the rain collector (very nice).
  • 40 foot (12 meter) anemometer cable. The anemometer connects to the Sensor Interface Module (SIM) on the side of the rain gauge.
  • Bird Spikes. The rain collector has optional spikes that can be installed to avoid potential nesting.

Not sure which model to choose? Visit our Davis Weather Stations Comparison Chart to help you decide. Includes the Davis Vantage Vue weather station as well.

Note: We do carry a magnetic compass to help you orient your anemometer to true north. For more information on set up, please visit the anemometer page on our WeatherShack education center.

Product works well and was easy to install. The second function labels on the console are very difficult to read due to the light colored lettering.

I recently replaced my 15 year old Davis wired weather with the new Vantage Pro2 wireless and am a big fan of the new system with its expanded features and wireless flexibility. I hope it lasts as long as the last one.

We had no experience with weather stations, and I thought it would make an awesome Christmas gift for the big hunter in our family. Well, to all our surprise, we have all taken an interest in the Davis Wireless Vantage Pro2 w/Fan Aspiration. It is so neat to be able to view the console and get so much valuable information on: how to dress for work; winds for hunting; rainfall, etc. It was easy to install and set up for us who were clueless on these type products. It's extremely funny watching the "great hunters" argue over the wind directions and speeds. I can't wait to see the difference in temperatures, winds, rainfall, etc. throughout the year. Our temperatures get extremely hot in summer, so that's why I decided to purchase the unit with a fan. Looking forward to being part of the Davis family for years to come.

Perfect weather station for our needs. We had been researching this for years and often gave up, it's a little overwhelming. Anyway, so glad I called the 800# and had someone walk me through the options. Got exactly what we wanted!

The weather station was as advertised. I had no difficulties installing it. The instructions were a little confusing at first, but upon completion I understood the thought process behind doing it in the order instructed. It works great and is easy to use. I think I'll be pleased with it for years.
