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.

Data available:

  • Temperature and humidity where the Weather Envoy is
  • Temperature and humidity at the integrated sensor suite
  • Instantaneous wind speed and 10 minute average wind speed
  • Wind direction
  • Current barometric pressure
  • Rain rate
  • Date and time of last storm and volume of rain in last storm
  • Volume of rain in the last day, month and year
  • Status of alarms
  • Forecast status
  • Time of sunrise and sunset

The Vantage Pro 2 Modbus Weather Station Kit is highly customisable to suit your particular application. You may choose from the following equivalent hardware:

Standard or Plus ISS

The Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) includes rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors and anemometer (with a 12 m cable for positioning away from the ISS). For improved accuracy, temperature and humidity sensors are housed inside a radiation shield. The shield protects against solar radiation and other sources of radiated and reflected heat. The ISS is available in two variants:

  • Standard ISS: Contains rain collector, temperature, humidity, wind speed & direction sensors.
  • ISS Plus: Adds solar radiation and UV sensors to the standard ISS.

Wired or Wireless

The ISS can send data to the weather station via a cable or wirelessly.

Naturally or Fan Aspirated

Wireless ISS modules can be fitted with a naturally aspirated or fan aspirated radiation shield. The radiation shield acts to prevent solar radiation from affecting the measurement of temperature. The naturally aspirated shield reduces solar radiation induced temperature measurement error to less than 2 °C worst case. The fan aspirated version pulls external air up through the sensor body, reducing the error to less than 0.3 °C worst case.

All kits also come with the ECS-003 serial WeatherLink cable, and GWY-141 Serial Modbus Gateway.

These kits use the official Australian versions of the Davis weather station ISS and Envoy - unlike the 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.

All kits apply a 10% discount off the retail prices of the separate items.

We've collected a few of the wiring diagrams from the Davis manuals together to help wiring the kits: Collection of Wiring Diagrams. Please note the WeatherLink logger is usually shipped in a box that looks like it might only contain software, so check your packaging carefully for all the parts.
