Radiation Shield
Models 6153 and

radiation shield for
maximum accuracy
of temperature and
humidity readings.
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.

Extend the range of your wireless station
for miles on end!
For longer distances or to improve reception in troublesome areas, add
one or more wireless repeaters. Use up to four repeaters in a daisy chain,
retransmitting from a single Vantage Pro2 or Vantage Vue integrated sensor
suite or special-purpose station. Or build a network of up to four repeaters and eight wireless stations, with some repeaters listening to multiple
stations, each with their own unique ID. For use with a wireless Vantage Pro2
or Vantage Vue console/receiver or Weather Envoy with a firmware date of
May 2005 or later. To use a repeater with one of these stations manufactured before that date, update the firmware using a Vantage Pro2 Updater.
Long-Range Wireless Repeaters |
Davis Instruments has achieved an incredible four miles (6.4 km) of transmission distance using two new
long-range repeaters with Yagi antennas. You may not achieve quite the same results, since range is highly
variable depending on antenna height, the terrain and foliage, buildings and other man-made structures, and RF
interference. But you should be impressed! Ideal for agricultural or research applications where long distances
are an issue. AC-powered model includes power adapter. Solar-powered model includes solar panel and lithium
backup battery. Antennas are sold separately. For use with Vantage Pro2 and Vantage Vue.

Watchdog Sprayer Station |
NEW
Reduce pesticide drift complaints . . .
and monitor your current conditions!.
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.

Weather Instruments 105
Things to consider when purchasing an electronic weather station.
1. 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.
