WIRELESS VANTAGE PRO2™
Vantage Pro2™ (6152, 6153) and Vantage Pro2™ Plus (6162, 6163) Wireless Weather Stations include two components: the Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) which houses and manages the external sensor array, and the console which provides the user interface, data display, and calculations. The ISS and Vantage Pro2 console communicate via an FCC‐certified, license‐free, spread‐spectrum frequency‐hopping (FHSS) transmitter and receiver. User‐
selectable transmitter ID codes allow up to eight stations to coexist in the same geographic area. The frequency hopping spread spectrum technology provides greater communication strength over longer distances and areas of weaker reception. The Wireless Vantage Pro2 Plus weather station includes two additional sensors that are optional on the Vantage Pro2: the UV sensor and the solar radiation sensor. The console may be powered by batteries or by the included AC‐power adapter. The wireless ISS is solar powered with a battery backup. Use WeatherLink® for Vantage Pro2 and Vantage Vue® to let your weather station interface with a computer, to log weather data, and to upload weather information to the internet.
The 6152 and 6162 rely on passive shielding to reduce solar‐radiation induced temperature errors in the outside temperature sensor readings. The Fan‐aspirated 6153 and 6163 combine passive shielding with a solar‐powered fan that draws outside air in over the temperature and humidity sensors, providing a much more accurate temperature reading than that available using passive shielding alone.
