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.

All Davis Vantage Pro 2 Complete Weather Station models include:

  • Console with AC power adapter. Wireless console may also be powered using three C batteries.
  • 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 magnetic compasses to help you orient your anemometer to true north. Those can be located under the "Accessories" tab. For more information on set up, please visit the anemometer page on our WeatherShack education center.

This is our third Davis Vantage weather station. 1998, 2007 and November 2016. We have a lot of wind besides cold winters. The weather stations got tired and wore out. We have been happy with our Davis weather stations.

4 stars Nice unit, Easy to Set Up
09/08/2016
Only drawback so far is temperature readings that vary with whether light is on, or discrete position of the monitor unit.Got quick feedback from support re how to calibrate temperatures. Next step is getting Mac software but UBS connection would force positioning the monitor close to the computer, and out of range of the station. Minor drawback...

If you're in to quality and accuracy, this unit is for you. Recently when the sun was nice and hot all day, most of the other stations were reading 5 degrees over the actual temp. While this aspirated unit kept the temperature in line with the nearest NOAA station.

Weather station is working great. The fan aspiration keeps the temperature sensor at ambient at all times.

05/25/2016
Vantage Pro2 is a solid product. Set up and operation were not difficult, but reading the instructions takes the guess work out of assembly. The equipment is working as designed without any issues. Worth the extra cost to get a quality product.

05/22/2016
Full disclosure: I'm a NOAA guy, but I'm a weather satellite guy and not a degreed meteorologist. After 20+ years of owning a Weather Monitor II, I decided it was time for an update. I decided on the Vantage Pro2 with the fan aspiration. Although I like the Davis folks and have talked to many of them over the years at their booth at AMS conferences, the Weathershack folks' price was incredible. And, they are located in Virginia and I am pleased to keep my business in the Commonwealth. The Vantage Pro2 is incredible. The set-up was simple and the data display is very well organized. It makes me want to invest in the software so I can report my data to my NWS colleagues.

This is the second Vantage Pro2 that I have purchased, I have been completely satisfied with both units.

5 stars Vantage Pro2
03/03/2016
Much more accurate than my Acurite because of better sensors faster update times and the ability to locate the wind sensor in a different location than the rain and temperature sensors. I ordered from the Weather Shack even thou it wasn't cheaper because of past experience with them as well as 2 day delivery for a cheap price.
