Davis Instruments 6162 Specifications

    Wireless Vantage Pro2 Plus with Standard Radiation Shield


    With Vantage Pro2, Davis Wireless weather stations are now even better than ever. The first and only stations in their price range to use frequency hopping spread spectrum radio, our Wireless Vantage Pro2s transmit and receive data up to 1000' (300 m) line of sight. Thats over three football fields in length - and three times farther than competing stations! At the same time, Davis has kept all the features that have made Vantage Pro famous. Youll get highs and lows (and/or totals or averages) for virtually all weather variables for the last 24 days, months, or years, and your own local forecast - all without a PC.

    Vantage Pro2 weather stations are available in both Wireless and cabled versions. All include the innovative integrated sensor suite, which combines the rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors, and anemometer all into one package - making setup easier than ever and improving performance and reliability.

    All Vantage Pro2 stations include:

    • Console with AC-power adapter. Wireless console may also be run using three C batteries. Batteries should also be added to cabled console for backup during power outages.
    • Integrated sensor suite with rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors, and anemometer.
    • 40-ft (12 m) anemometer cable.
    • Mounting hardware.

    Vantage Pro2 Plus stations also include:

    • Solar radiation sensor.
    • UV radiation sensor.
    • Sensor mounting shelf.

    Cabled stations also include:

    • 100-ft (30 m) cable from console to integrated sensor suite.

    Wireless stations also include:

    • Transmitter (in weather-resistant shelter) and receiver (in console). Range is up to 1000' (300 m) outdoors, line of sight. Typical range through walls under most conditions is 200' to 400' (60 to 120 m).
    • Ability to receive data from more than one transmitter.
    • Ability to retransmit from one console/receiver (or Wireless Weather Envoy) to another, so you can view the same weather data in more than one location.


    Includes all the features of Vantage Pro, plus everything you need for reading:
    • UV index and dose.
    • Solar radiation.
    • Evapotranspiration.

    UV and solar radiation sensors are pre-installed on sensor mounting shelf.

    Wireless Vantage Pro2 and its wireless extras are not compatible with original Vantage Pro stations because they use different radios.


    A wireless weather station with a versatile sensor suite that combines our rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors and anemometer into one package. You can customize your Vantage Pro2 by adding consoles or the special-purpose options. Available in both wireless and cabled versions.
