The Davis Instruments Vantage Pro2 line of weather stations retain all the great features of the original Vantage Pro line but now incorporate many additional features and improvements!

The Davis Instruments 6152C Cabled Vantage Pro2 with Standard Radiation Shield includes a 100' cable (max. distance is 1,000') to connect between the Integrated Sensor Suite and the display console.  This upgraded weather station has all the features that made the original Vantage Pro so famous, yet adds many more features such as button realignment to make navigating to often-used functions much easier; a redesigned rain collector that is laser-calibrated to ensure the best accuracy possible; and a re-tooled Integrated Sensor Suite with upgraded electronics. The Cabled Vantage Pro2 also has a fifth radiation shield plate to improve accuracy and readings!

The Model 6152C Cabled Vantage Pro2 consists of a console unit and an innovative integrated sensor suite that includes a rain collector with self-emptying bucket, temperature and humidity sensors and an anemometer. The sensor suite is housed inside a radiation shield, protecting the sensors against solar radiation and additional sources of reflected and/or radiated heat.

In addition, this high-tech Model 6152C  Vantage Pro2 Cabled Weather Station will track highs and lows (and/or totals and averages) for almost all weather variables for the past 24 days, months or years and track your local forecast!

The Model 6152C Cabled Vantage Pro2 Weather Station from Davis Instruments includes a 100' signal cable and other features such as on-screen graphing, forecasting using easy-to-read icons (sunny, cloudy, rain, snow), barometric pressure trend, inside temperature, dew point, humidity information, time and date, and much more!

Vantage Pro2 weather stations from Davis Instruments are the best for amateur weather observers and weather professionals alike!

Solar Radiation Detector

From Hobby Boards
The Solar Radiation detector measures sunlight, and can be used as a part of an overall weather station. It can also be used for many specific monitoring uses, such as tracking the sunlight in various areas of your garden in order to optimize your planting plans. It detects light in the visible to infrared portion of the spectrum, with peak detection at 860nm and an acceptance angle of 140 degrees.

This Solar Radiation Detector with RJ45 is substantially larger than than the SR3-R1-A Solar Radiation Detector. It is also a totally different board design. In addition to adding dual RJ45 connectors (the board still has screw terminals for those who prefer them), we have added a voltage regulator to prevent the sensor from overloading the 1-wire network when light levels are extremely high. This device can optionally use external power of 9-24 volts DC. Either our Power Injector or our 6 Channel Hub would provide the needed power. This is a fully assembled and tested unit.

The DS9490R USB adaptor connects your 1-Wire network to your computer. This, or something comparable, will be required in order to run your 1-Wire network. It has an RJ12 standard telephone connector for connecting to your 1-Wire network, and a standard USB connector for attaching to your computer. We offer an adaptor cable, shown below, to facilitate connection between the RJ12 connector and an RJ45 1-Wire network.

The software I use is Weather Display which can be obtained from  WEATHER DISPLAY
It is very good and compatible with most weather stations.also there is a back up service in the form of a web forum at WEATHER-WATCH COM
