What’s New | Design Your Weather Station
From Elegantly Simple to the
Ultimate in Flexibility
What’s New?
At Davis Instruments, we take great pride in offering you a range of weather
stations that are designed to provide the highest level of accuracy, reliability
and ruggedness. Whether you are a weather hobbyist who simply observes the
weather, or someone who relies on accurate weather data for farming, research
or business, you will find a Davis weather station to meet your needs.
Design Your Weather Station
Weather enthusiasts want an accurate, reliable weather station that is both easy
to install and easy to use. We’ve designed our Vantage Vue® and Vantage Pro2™
weather stations (complete with integrated sensor suites, information-packed consoles
and long wireless distance capabilities) to meet those needs. WeatherLink® software
is available separately to complete your package.
Some users want to create a customized weather system to meet their individual
needs. In designing such a system, it is important to know how to mix and match
sensors, transmitters and receivers; integrate specialized software; and choose the
right option for remote communications. We’ve added small icons by each product to
easily identify sensors, transmitters, repeaters, receivers and software. Compatibility
charts on pages 28 and 29 will help you design the perfect weather system for your
special needs. We’ve also included a few examples to demonstrate different usage
scenarios (pages 24 and 25).
Our technical staff is happy to assist you in choosing or customizing the Davis
weather station to best suit your needs. We welcome your call at (510) 732-7814.

Models 6153 and 6163
include our patented
24-hour fan-aspirated
radiation shield for
maximum accuracy of
temperature and humidity
readings. A motor-driven
fan draws a constant
airflow through the sensor
chamber at 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 slows to 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 sunlight 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.
Customize your installation
You need flexibility when deciding how to install your equipment. With that in
mind, Davis provides a variety of installation options to suit your needs.
An economical solution for adding the benefits
of fan aspiration by retrofitting your wireless or
cabled Vantage Pro2 or Pro2 Plus. Less costly
than our 24-hour fan-aspirated radiation shield,
but nearly 75% as effective in reducing the effects
of daytime radiation. With no backup battery, the
fan only runs during daylight hours and will cease
running at night when solar radiation effects are
reduced. Retrofit kit for Vantage Pro2 and Vantage
Pro2 Plus includes fan, solar panel, additional
radiation shield plates and hardware.

Weather Envoy and Envoy8X
Envoy8X: Designed for customers who
need data from multiple stations
Envoy8X™
With 32 times the memory of our
Weather Envoy, Envoy8X receives and
logs data simultaneously from up to eight
transmitting stations, in any combination—
even eight Integrated Sensor Suites or eight
Leaf Wetness & Soil Moisture/Temperature
Stations! Doing the math, that means
you can get data from 32 soil moisture
sensors on one Envoy8X! Includes robust
software that allows for data from many
sensors and multiple Envoy8Xs to produce
very large databases in Microsoft Access,
MySQL or Microsoft SQL Server. You
select which sensors to log, and choose
a logging interval from 10 seconds to 2
hours. You can even add select third-party
sensors that report readings in a 0–3 volt
range. Data can be easily exported to a
spreadsheet program such as Excel, or to

Antennas and Repeaters
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 repeaters in a daisy
chain, retransmitting from a single Vantage Pro2 or Vantage Vue Integrated Sensor Suite, or special-purpose station. You can
also build a network of repeaters and wireless stations, with some repeaters listening to multiple stations, each with their own
unique ID. For use with any Davis wireless transmitter and receiver.
Long-Range Wireless Repeaters
In our testing, we achieved an incredible four
miles (6,4 km) of transmission distance using
two of our long-range repeaters with Yagi
antennas. Range varies depending on antenna
height, the terrain and foliage, buildings, other
man-made structures, and RF interference. Ideal
for agricultural or research applications where
long distances are an issue. This solar-powered
model includes solar panel and lithium backup
battery. Antennas are sold separately.

Integrated Pest Management Modules
Integrated Pest Management Modules
Integrated Pest Management Modules (IPM) link your weather data to actual
pest risk, giving you a powerful new tool in protecting your crops from pest
damage. These add-on modules generate stepped risk levels to warn you
when conditions are most susceptible to pest development. For full use of all
the modules, we recommend:
• Vantage Pro2 or Pro2 Plus Weather Station
• Wireless Leaf & Soil Moisture/Temperature Station (without sensors)
• Leaf Wetness Sensor
• WeatherLink for Windows
• Vantage Connect for remote access to your weather data
While each software comes loaded with pest models for all known pests
(including diseases, insects and mites), you can completely customize
your IPM software to track the pests specific to your area. That data is
transformed into a color-coded spreadsheet, illustrating the highest risk
potentials in red. Because you use real-time data from your own vineyard
or orchard weather sensors, the software’s updated pest development
algorithms will provide you with the most accurate, crop-specific risk
assessment available. For use with all WeatherLink models (Mac excluded).

Downy Mildew of Grape
Downy mildew, caused by the obligate
parasite Plasmopara viticola, is
potentially one of the most destructive
diseases of grape in the world. The
disease is especially serious in climates
with abundant rainfall, high relative
humidity, and prolonged periods of
wetness on leaves and fruits. The
fungus infects all parts of the grape
vine. It causes losses by killing leaf
tissues and defoliation. Also, it rots
the ripening grapes and weakens,
dwarfs, and kills the young shoots. First
symptoms are yellow circular spots
with an oily appearance on the upper
leaf surface. On the underside of the
leaf surface the fungus appears as a
delicate, dense, white, cottony growth
in the lesions. The young berries are
PANEhighly susceptible. They appear grayish

WeatherLink Options
Critical real-time data right when you need it
WeatherLink for Alarm Output with Connector Block
Now you can automatically turn heaters, fans and other devices on or off
using your weather station. For each of four outputs, you can enter up to eight
different weather parameters. Enter threshold values for each, select from
nine different test conditions, and link the entries together as you choose.
For example, you could activate a fan to cool your house—but only if the
difference between the inside and outside temperatures is more than 5°F,
it’s more than 72°F inside and it’s between 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Our
connector block provides the interface between your weather station and an
electrical device. For high-power devices, you may also need to
add electrical relays (not supplied by Davis). Connection to a
PC is not required except for initial setup.
WeatherLink for Emergency Response Teams with
Streaming Data Logger and CAMEO link
For use with the free CAMEO (Computer-Aided Management of Emergency
Operations) software developed by NOAA and the EPA. With Vantage Pro2,
Vantage Vue or Weather Envoy, provides the real-time weather data needed
to map the footprint of a hazardous plume, predict its dispersion and help
make critical public safety decisions—all at just a fraction of the cost of other
systems. For more about CAMEO, visit www.epa.gov/emergencies/content/
cameo/index.htm.

How Will You Use Your Weather Station?
Davis weather stations are used around the world to keep weather observers
informed. While real user stories are highlighted in our Davis E-Newsletter, we’ve
created a few examples to give you an idea of the many ways you can create the
perfect weather system.
The Weather Buff
THE BUFF’S SYSTEM
He loves to watch the weather and over the years has installed more than one
drugstore thermometer on his patio. He wanted a high quality weather
station that could give him accurate readings on wind, temperature,
humidity, barometer and rain; all displayed clearly on a console—
while staying within his budget. He was impressed with how simple
Vantage Vue was to install and with all the information it provided
on the console—historical data, forecast icons, and graphs—and
the Weather Center’s extra information. He added WeatherLinkIP
and learned how simple it was to upload his data to the Internet.

The Professional Weather Watcher
He is serious about the weather. He wanted weather readings that could be reported to NOAA and CWOP.
He chose the Vantage Pro2 system so that he could mount the anemometer on a 30 feet (nine meters)
tower while keeping his rain and other sensors at six feet (two meters). He knew a Davis weather station
would be durable—a very important fact because he lives where summers are hot, winters are snowy
and the hurricane-force winds are a late summer highlight. He chose the Vantage Pro2 with 24-hour
Fan-Aspirated Radiation Shield and added a Rain Collector Heater. Living where
weather can do some serious damage, he wanted to help his community
prepare for severe weather via his website and his ham radio, so he added
WeatherLinkIP. He wanted to see his data in the living room as well as in
his radio shack, so he added a Vantage Vue console. He also wanted to
monitor the temperature of the pond that is 1500 feet (457,2 meters)
from his back deck, so the latest addition to his system was a wireless
Temperature/Humidity Station and a standard wireless repeater.

The Vintners
THE VINTNER’S SYSTEM
They found the perfect vineyard on a rolling hillside and sank their savings into the dream of raising
grapes and producing award-winning wines. Even though their climate, with its foggy, cool summers,
mild winters and infrequent frosts is ideal, they still have to make the daily weather-based decisions that
determine the success—or failure—of their crop. They needed real-time data from their own vineyard’s
micro-climate, which happens to be miles from their office; miles from anything, in fact. They chose a
Vantage Pro2 Plus Integrated Sensor Suite and installed Vantage Connect to bring that remote station’s
data right into their office via a cellular connection. They use WeatherLink software to log and store data
to use in future growing seasons. They added a Wireless Leaf and Soil Moisture/Temperature Station with
one leaf wetness sensor, one soil moisture sensor and one soil temperature probe. This allows them to
gather ET data for irrigation decisions and use the Integrated Pest Management Module for Grapes to
track potential pest and disease risk. They dream of expanding their vineyard and adding weather stations
in remote fields. They need the durability, accuracy and update speed of Davis stations; and the flexibility
to grow and add on to their system offered by Vantage Connect.

The Wind Researcher
THE RESEARCHER’S SYSTEM
She’s a researcher overseeing graduate students who are studying wind energy. Her team needed wind
data from several sites to see how wind moves through the campus. Her colleagues were also interested
in temperature and humidity. She started with a Vantage Pro2 on the roof of the biology building, and
wanted to add two Vantage Vue integrated sensor suites on buildings nearby. Rather than log data using
three consoles, our researcher chose Envoy8X. She still uses her Vantage Pro2 console to follow the
weather on the biology building. Adding the Envoy8X allows her to listen to any combination of eight
integrated sensor suites and anemometers and use a WeatherLink data logger and the commercial grade
database software included with Envoy8X to easily compile her data into one database. With Envoy8X,
our researcher not only added the two Vantage Vue integrated sensor suites,
she installed five additional anemometers with Anemometer/Sensor
Transmitting Kits. With data coming from around the campus, she
added a long-range repeater so that all eight stations are logged by
the one Envoy8X. Now she has one database with data from all
the anemometers plus the additional sensor data from the three
integrated sensor suites—just what her team needed.

standards of measurement to which all
others are ultimately traced. Numerous
calibrations, tests and measurement
assurance programs are delivered directly
to approximately 10,000 companies.
From these companies, NIST-traceable
intermediate service providers are the next
link in a network that joins together the
makers and users of precision instruments.
Davis Instruments is proud to provide this
calibration service in our California factory
utilizing NIST-traceable references for those
customers who require it. For users who
require this additional service, calibration
of new and previously owned sensors
is available. For the cost of individual
sensors, please contact us for pricing.

Reasons to Buy
Things to consider when purchasing a 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 or
Vantage Vue give you those features, plus:
• Additional Rainfall Information: 15-minute,
hourly, monthly and yearly rainfall, and rainfall
amounts for each of the last 24 storms.
• Additional Wind Speed Information: 10-minute
average wind speed and dominant wind
direction. In addition, with Vantage Vue, you
get 2-minute average speed, high speed and
direction in the last ten minutes.
• Apparent Temperature: Heat index, and with
Vantage Pro2’s optional solar radiation sensor,
the temperature-humidity-sun-wind index.
• Vantage Pro2 optional Solar and UV Radiation
Sensors: Greater awareness of the dangers of
excessive exposure to the sun.
• For agricultural users: Evapotranspiration, leaf
wetness, soil moisture and soil temperature with
Vantage Pro2 optional sensors.
2. HOW EASY IS IT TO SET UP?
With most competing stations, you need to install
each sensor separately, which adds complication
and takes time and effort. Vantage Pro2 and Vantage
Vue are 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. Mounting is further simplified by using
our optional tripod. On Vantage Pro2, gain further
accuracy by detaching the anemometer from the
sensor suite and mounting it separately.
3. WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM
TRANSMISSION DISTANCE?
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 and Vantage
Vue will almost always outperform the competition.
And we offer wireless repeaters and Vantage Connect
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
and Vantage Vue give 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 or years for Vantage Pro2, and current
and last 25 days, months or years for Vantage Vue.
No other stations on the market even come close.
30 Davis Instruments • www.davisinstruments.com
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 and Vantage Vue transmitters
send data to the console every 2.5 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 most 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.
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 and Vantage Vue
use 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 and Vantage Vue have similar icons, plus
Vantage Pro2 has over 80 different forecast messages
that scroll across the bottom of the display. None of the
other stations have this. The Vantage Pro2’s ticker tape
also gives additional information depending on which
key you press. Both Vantage Pro2 and Vantage Vue
are able to display 10-minute average wind speed, the
last 15 minutes and last 24 hours of rain. These are
only a few examples of Davis stations’ unique features.
Competing stations don't have anything like this.
8. HOW MUCH DATA CAN YOU GRAPH
ON THE SCREEN?
With Vantage Pro2 and Vantage Vue, 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, and with the
Weather Center feature on Vantage Vue, 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 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?
Our stations can be used up to 15,000 ft. (4570 m)
in elevation. Many competing stations are limited
to 6,000 ft. (1829 m) or below. If you’re lucky
enough to live and work—or perhaps enjoy a
vacation home—in the mountains, you’ll find that
our Vantage Pro2 and Vantage Vue weather stations
work just fine, no matter what the elevation.
10. IS THERE A COMPUTER INTERFACE?
If you’d like to do even more analysis, add our
WeatherLink data logger and software package. The
data logger stores data at the interval you choose
(from one minute 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.
11. HOW MANY ALARMS ARE THERE?
With Vantage Pro2 and Vantage Vue, alarms
can be set for just about every weather variable,
for just about any reason imaginable—up to 70
alarms for Vantage Pro2 and 22 for Vantage
Vue. The alarms found on competing stations are
generally quite limited.
12. WHAT IS THE ACCURACY, RESOLUTION,
AND RANGE?
Vantage Pro2 and Vantage Vue generally beat their
similarly-priced competition in accuracy, resolution
and range. It can be difficult to find the specs for
competing stations. When we do find them, our testing
shows that they are a bit, shall we say, optimistic. We
are proud to publish our specs in our catalog and on
our website, and stand behind them 100%.
13. HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE USING
THE STATIONS?
There are many, many thousands of happy Davis
weather station users around the country and around
the world. Check out “Weather World ’Round” in the
weather section of www.davisnet.com under “Cool
Stuff” and click on links to visit websites of Davis
weather station owners around the world. You’ll
find that 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. You can also
visit www.weatherlink.com and see a worldwide
map of Davis weather station owners who use our
WeatherLinkIP software, which along with other
features, creates its own weather website for your
weather station.

family, you’ll be able to see when, where and how
your car is driven in real time.
Simply plug the small yet powerful, GPS telematics
unit into the vehicle’s OBD II (onboard diagnostics)
port and log on to a secure, private, user-friendly
website. You’ll see your vehicle’s location, its
speed, driving routes, even engine diagnostic and
performance data. You can also set custom alerts to
notify you of driver speed, hard or extreme braking or
cornering, going in or out of a pre-defined area, and
when the check engine light is on.
