DESCRIPTION

OVERVIEW

The highly affordable, Davis Vantage Vue Wireless Weather Station combines Davis Instruments' legendary accuracy and rugged durability into a compact station that's easy to install, set up and use. Made in the USA, the Vantage Vue includes a sleek but tough outdoor sensor array and a distinctive LCD console. Its unique Weather Center function provides additional information on each weather variable. In addition, Davis has made the Vantage Vue radio-compatible with their flagship Vantage Pro2 weather stations so you can mix-and-match most components!

Like the Davis Vantage Pro2, two key factors set Vantage Vue apart from most other complete weather stations, 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 - Line of sight range is 1000'. Typical range under most conditions is 300' to 500'. This is a much greater distance than most other professional units

The Davis Vantage Vue also uses the same frequency-hopping spread spectrum radio technology as the Vantage Pro2 to wirelessly send data up to 1,000 feet and provides weather updates from the outdoor integrated sensor suite to the indoor console every 2.5 seconds.

With the indoor console's Weather Center feature, Vantage Vue 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 Vue console with an easy-to-read backlit LCD display with a glow-in-the-dark keypad. 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 Vue's 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. To ensure product longevity, the ISS sensor electronics are sealed for added protection from the elements. The assembly is even cyclic corrosion tested to simulate harsh environments such as heat, humidity and seaside conditions.

Being radio-compatible with the Vantage Pro2, VP2 owners may purchase a Vantage Vue sensor suite or console and they will work together seamlessly.

Vantage Vue stations will also work with Davis Instruments' WeatherLink software. WeatherLink allows users to transfer their weather data to a PC or Mac for additional analysis and graphing.

Considering the Vantage Pro2 as well? Visit our Davis Weather Stations Comparison Chart for an overview of capabilities between all models, including the Vantage Vue.

Note: We do carry magnetic compasses to help you orient your anemometer to true north. Those can be located under the "Accessories" tab shown above. For more information on set up, please visit the anemometer page on our WeatherShack education center.

Easy set-up; if you don't have an existing pole, recommend using the tripod or pole mount listed as accessories for best stability and support. Wireless connection without any problems.

I am very happy with this purchase.Take the time explore the many features available with this unit. I was able to fabricate a mount for my gable end but if you are not handy you should consider the mounts that are available for purchase.

We have mounted the weather station and it is working fine. We enjoy the read outs and it is doing all that we expected. I thought the connection point from the post that I provided to the instrument itself could be better. I chose to mount the plastic weather station to a steel pole about 125 ft. from the house and elevated about 20 ft. above the ground. It will be interesting to see how it endures through Arizona sand storms.

The 6250 has everything a casual weather observer could ever want -Except the College diploma it takes to operate the unit! Seriously, A drawing of the display showing it with typical readings would've been nice... It helps to be computer savvy, too.

It would have been good to have had a little more info concerning type of pole, good height for pole, and tricks for being sure it was solidly planted. The device seems to be working very well.
