The new Davis Vantage Vue weather station combines Davis' legendary accuracy and rugged durability into a compact station that's easy to set up and use. Vantage Vue includes a sleek but tough outdoor sensor array and a distinctive LCD console. Its unique Weather Center function provides additional information on each weather variable. In addition, Davis has made Vantage Vue radio-compatible with our flagship Vantage Pro2 professional stations so you can mix-and-match most components.Station Includes: Integrated Sensor Suite including temperature, wind, and rain sensorsConsoleMounting hardware (mounting pole sold separately) Console TIME & DATE View the current time and date or time of sunrise/sunset. MOON PHASESee the eight phases of the moon from new to full. FORECAST ICONSIcons let you know to expect sun, part sun, clouds, rain, or snow. TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITYConsole updates outside temperature every 10 seconds and inside temperature every minute. In addition, outside humidity Updates every 50 seconds and inside humidity every minute. RETRANSMITSMain console can extend range to additional consoles up to 1,000 ft. (300 m). BAROMETERFive-position trend arrow shows whether barometric pressure is rising, falling, or stable. VARIABLE DISPLAY OPTIONS See updated variables every 10 seconds for heat index and wind chill to get a better "feel" for the outside environment. RAINConsole updates rain totals and rain rate every 20 seconds for the last 25 hours, days, months. "CHANGE IN WEATHER SINCE YESTERDAY" FEATUREAllows comparisons of changes of temperature and barometric pressure from day to day. WEATHER CENTERWeather Center provides additional information for each weather variable, such as daily highs and lows, temperature changes by the hour and barometric value changes. Also displays astronomical data such as meteor showers. USER-FRIENDLY KEYPADDomed buttons are easy to sense and press. Glow-in-the-dark keypad buttons give you access to weather information all day and all night. The Done key returns user to "current" screen from anywhere in the program. GRAPHSGraph the last 25 hours, days or months. View up to 50 graphs including temperature, rain, rain rate, wind and barometric pressure—all on the console. "THIS TIME YESTER DAY" FEATUREData point on the graph indicates the weather during the same time yesterday to help compare and analyze day-to-day weather trends. ALARMSSet 22 simultaneous, different alarms to warn of dangers such as high winds, freezing temperatures, rain rate, flood warning, and more. WIND SPEEDSee windspeed updates every 2.5 seconds. Displays windspeed in miles per hour, meters per second, kilometers per hour and knots. Provides the average and high wind speed for two-minute and ten-minute intervals. ISS (Integrated Sensor Suite)WIRELESSFrequency-hopping spread spectrum radio ensures consistent transmission up to 1,000 ft. (300 m) from integrated sensor suite to console. RAIN COLLECTOR Self-emptying tipping spoon measures rain with .01" (0.2mm) resolution. ANEMOMETERVantage Vue records wind speeds as low as 2 mph (3 km/h) and as high as 150 mph (241 km/h). WEATHER PROOF COVER Corrosion-resistant cover provides durability in extreme conditions. Electronics are potted or over-molded for added moisture shielding. RADIATION SHIELDProvides excellent protection from solar radiation and other sources of radiated and reflected heat. TEMPERATURE/RELATIVE HUMIDITYProvides outside temperature readings from -40°F to 150°F (-40°C to 65°C). Also measures relative humidity from 0 to 100%. EASY INSTALLATIONInstalls easily and quickly with included mounting hardware kit. WIND DIRECTIONMeasures wind direction in compass points or degrees. SOLAR PANELEnergizes the station during the day. On-board super capacitor provides power at night. Lithium battery provides backup when needed. BUBBLE LEVELAllows for more accurate installation and better data collection.This United States version uses US radio frequency from 902 to 928 MHz (on units equipped with wireless transmission) and a 0.01" rain collector. Station reports in US standard units. Includes US power adapter. Specifications Updates every 2.5 seconds Wireless transmission up to 1,000 ft. (300 m) 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 22 user-selectable alarms 12-hr forecasts Barometric pressure reporting RAIN COLLECTOR: Reports rain rate and rain totals. Self-emptying tipping spoon measures rain with .01" resolution for US stations and 0.2 mm resolution for EU/UK stations. ANEMOMETER: Vantage Vue records wind speeds as low as 2 mph (3 km/h) and as high as 150 mph (241 km/h). WIND DIRECTION: Measures wind direction in compass points or degrees. TEMPERATURE/RELATIVE HUMIDITY: Indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity sensors. Provides outside temperature readings from -40°F to 150°F (-40°C to 65°C). Outdoor sensors contained in radiation shield for optimum accuracy. Also measures relative humidity from 0 to 100%. BUBBLE LEVEL: Allows for more accurate installation and better data collection.
