The innovative ISS combines a rain collector, temperature/humidity sensors, and anemometer/direction vane into a single unit for optimum performance and durability.
This unit works with the Vantage Vue console, Vantage Pro2 console or Wireless Envoy. (Combined ISS and console kit here.)
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.
Mounting hardware included; mounting pole sold separately.
- Updates every 2.5 seconds
- Wireless transmission up to 300m (1,000')
- Frequency-hopping spread spectrum radio for continuous data transmission
- Solar-powered with stored energy backup
- Survived cyclic corrosion tests simulating wear in extreme weather environments
- Barometric pressure reporting
Installs easily and quickly with included mounting hardware kit. Wireless link between integrated sensor suite (ISS) and display console. Frequency-hopping spread spectrum radio ensures consistent transmission up to 300m (1,000') from ISS to console. The ISS has a built-in solar panel that charges the station during the day. On-board super capacitor provides power at night. Lithium battery provides backup when needed.
A built-in bubble spirit level makes it easy to mount the ISS level and ensure accurate measurements.
Davis's reputation for high-quality, robust weather stations continues with the Vantage Vue. The sensor suite's corrosion-resistant cover provides durability in extreme conditions. Its electronics are potted or over-moulded for added moisture shielding.
Temperature and humidity sensors are protected by a radiation shield that provides excellent protection from solar radiation and other sources of radiated and reflected heat.
The ISS provides outside temperature readings from -40 to 65 °C (-40 to 150 °F). Sensors are contained in radiation shield for optimum accuracy. Also measures relative humidity from 0 to 100%.
The rain collector reports rain rate and rain totals. A self-emptying tipping spoon measures the rain with .01" or 0.2 mm resolution.
The Vantage Vue records wind speeds from its anemometer as low as 3 km/h (2 mph) and as high as 241 km/h (150 mph). The wind speed is transmitted every 2.5 seconds. A built-in weather vane allows for full 360º wind direction measurement.
