The Vantage Pro2 series of weather stations from Davis Instruments are high quality monitoring stations popular with education and research users. They're also fantastic stations for monitoring in agriculture and industry or for serious home weather buffs.
This item is the console only. It can receive data from the wireless Vantage Pro2 weather stations (ECS-001, ECS-002), wireless integrated sensor suites (ECS-006, ECS-007), Vantage Vue weather station or ISS (ECS-020, ECS-018) or other sensors in the wireless Vantage Pro2 range.
These are the official Australian version - unlike some other distributors of Davis gear, weather station gear purchased through us have their radios set to frequencies that are legal in Australia, and come with an Australian plugpack with the slightly odd connector to suit the console.
The console may be powered using the included AC-power adapter (suits Australian sockets) or with three C batteries (not included). The wireless range is up to 300m (1000') outdoors, line of sight. Typical range through walls under most conditions is 60 to 120m (200' to 400') Add wireless repeaters for distances up to 2.7km (1.7 miles).
A weather station can be connected to a PC using one of the optional WeatherLink cables plugged in to the console. With the WeatherLink serial cable and our gateway module, the station can be connected to a Modbus RTU network and polled by a PLC, SCADA system or computer.
