A motor-driven 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 air flow 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 batteries 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. 94 Order by Phone Order On-Line Weather Instruments 1-800-667-8001 www.farmtronics.com Solar Radiation Sensor | Measures solar radiation and solar energy.

Effective management of pesticide drift is increasingly important to pesticide applicators. Now you can monitor and data log weather conditions with the ultrasonic WatchDog Sprayer Station. Accurate data helps pesticide applicators make important decisions regarding weather conditions that affect safety, drift, and proper pesticide application. User controlled data logging of weather conditions provides evidence of suitable conditions for pesticide application. Smaller than a can of soda, this all-in-one weather station measures air temperature, humidity, dew point, wind chill, barometric pressure and apparent wind speed and direction. It handles adverse conditions with a UV stabilized, compact housing that is fully waterproof and resistant to chemicals. Reliability is enhanced by eliminating moving parts: the traditional wind vane and cups have been replaced with ultrasonic transducers. The WatchDog Sprayer Station is more than a compact and capable weather station. While on-the-go, the station uses its internal compass and GPS to adjust the wind sensor values by subtracting the vehicle speed and direction to compute the true wind speed and direction. Display current conditions: wind speed & direction, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, and GPS parameters (vehicle speed & direction, location, and satellite signal strength). Continuously log your weather parameters at a user-selectable rate or hit the snapshot button to capture current conditions.

What weather variables are measured and recorded? Most other stations offer barometric pressure, outside humidity and dew point, daily and yearly rainfall, wind speed and direction, wind chill, and outside temperature. Some also offer inside temperature and humidity, and a few even give you extra outside temperatures and rain rate. Only Vantage Pro2 gives you all these, plus: • Additional Rainfall Information: 15-minute, hourly, and monthly rainfall, and rainfall amounts for each of the last 24 storms. • Additional Wind Speed Information: 10-minute average speed, direction of high speed, and 10-minute dominant wind direction. • Apparent Temperature: Heat index and, with a solar radiation sensor, temperaturehumidity-sun-wind index. • Optional Solar and UV Radiation Sensors for greater awareness of the dangers of excessive exposure to the sun. • For agricultural users, optional evapotranspiration, leaf wetness, soil moisture, and soil temperature. or years. No other station on the market even comes close. And not only can you view the data numerically, you can also view on-screen graphs, for instant visual representations of long-term trends. 5. How often is the information updated? The Vantage Pro2 transmitter sends data to the console every 2½ seconds. Highly variable conditions (such as wind speed and direction) are updated with each packet, while less variable conditions are updated every 10 seconds. With competing stations, the update interval is much longer: 30 seconds, or even up to 3 minutes. This may not seem important. But try watching the wind gust, or the rain suddenly come pouring down. It’s very disconcerting to look out the window, see something happen weather-wise, and not see it reflected on the console right away. depending on which key you press. Press WIND to display wind speed, and you’ll get a message showing the 10 minute average wind speed. If it’s raining, press RAIN YR to see the last 15 minutes of rain, or RAIN DAY to see the last 24 hours of rain. And these are just a few examples! None of the competing stations have anything like this. to two hours) for up to six months. Transfer the data whenever you like, or leave your computer on to have it transfer automatically every day. For some competing stations, no software package is available. Other stations do offer software, but don’t include a data logger—so your PC must be on and the software running at all times. 8. How much data can you graph on the screen? 11. How many alarms are there? With Vantage Pro2, you can graph just about every weather variable, with averages and highs and lows for most, and go back in time for minutes, days, months, and years. The competition typically graphs just one variable—barometric pressure—and typically just for the last 24 hours. With all the graphs on Vantage Pro2, you can do tons of analysis, even without purchasing a software package. You’ll find that the more dramatic the weather is, the more fun it is to 2. How easy is it to set up? The wireless transmission range for most competing stations is generally quite limited. Although range is highly variable (depending not only on the physical features of the land and structure but also on RF interference in the area), Vantage Pro2 will almost always out perform the competition. And Davis offers wireless repeaters should you wish to extend the range even further. 4. How many highs and lows are measured and recorded? Most other stations simply give you the current readings. If highs and lows are available at all, they are usually quite limited. Only Vantage Pro2 gives you the highs and lows (and/or totals or averages) for just about all weather conditions, with time and/or date for the last 24 days, months, 12 . Wha t is the accu racy, resolution, and range? Vantage Pro2 generally beats the competition in accuracy, resolution, and range. It can be difficult to find the specs for competing stations. When found, the testing shows that they are a bit, shall we say, optimistic. Davis is proud to publish their specs in their catalog and on their website, and stand behind them 100%. 13. How many people are using the stations? With most competing stations, you need to install each sensor separately, which adds complication and takes time and effort. Vantage Pro2 is factory-assembled to make setup as easy as possible. Just complete a few minor assembly steps, insert the battery, and you’re ready to mount the sensor suite. Mount the two sides together using the optional tripod, or detach the anemometer to mount it separately. Flexible mounting options make it easy, either way. 3. What is the maximum transmission distance? With Vantage Pro2, alarms can be set for just about every weather variable, for just about any reason imaginable—up to 70 alarms in all. The alarms found on competing stations are generally quite limited. 6. How is the forecast generated? The competition generally bases their forecast on barometric pressure alone, which results in none too accurate a prediction. Vantage Pro2 uses a sophisticated forecasting algorithm which takes into account not only barometric pressure, but also wind, rainfall, temperature, humidity, and longitude and latitude. The result? A much more accurate forecast. Not perfect, but even the guys with the satellite pictures don’t always get it right! 7. How is the forecast displayed? Competing stations use icons to show the forecast. Vantage Pro2 has similar icons, plus over 80 different forecast messages that scroll across the bottom of the display. None of the other stations have this. The ticker tape also gives additional information look at the graphs. Just how windy is it, and how does it compare to the last wind storm? How much rain did we get this month, as compared to last month? 9. Can you use the station at higher elevations? Davis stations can be used up to 15,000 feet in elevation. Many competing stations are limited to 6,000 feet or below. If you’re lucky enough to live and work—or perhaps enjoy a vacation home—in the mountains, you’ll find that the Vantage Pro2 weather station works just fine, no matter what the elevation. 10. Is there a computer interface? If you’d like to do even more analysis, add a WeatherLink data logger and software package. The data logger stores data at the interval you choose (from one minute There are many, many thousands of happy Davis weather station users around the country and around the world. Check out “Weather World ’Round” on their website (www.davisnet.com/links), and you’ll see a listing for Norman, Oklahoma. Click on the link, and you’ll go to the website for the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center. They’re using a Davis Weather Monitor II to update the local “unofficial” weather conditions to their website. Many other Davis weather station owners participate as volunteer observers for the National Weather Service, the National Hurricane Center, and numerous local TV and radio stations. 14. How long has the company been in business? In business since 1963, Davis Instruments opened up the home weather station market back in 1989. Their weather stations are manufactured in Hayward, California, and they have a full customer service and support staff. Most competing stations are made overseas, and it can be difficult (if not impossible) to get any kind of customer service or aftermarket support.
