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 6163 Vantage Pro2 Plus with Solar Radiation and Ultra Violet sensors and a Aspirated Radiation Shield transmits and receives data from up to 1,000 feet away (line-of-sight) – that’s more than three football fields in length! 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 Model 6163 Wireless Vantage Pro2 also has a 24 hour fan asipirated radiation shield to improve accuracy and readings even more!

The Wireless Model 6163 Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus with Solar radiation and UV sensors 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 6163 Vantage Pro2 Plus Wireless 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!

With the expanded transmission range that can be extended with optional repeaters, this Model 6163 Wireless Vantage Pro2 Weather Station includes an anemometer that can be mounted with the sensor suite or detached and placed in a separate location.

Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus Includes New Rain Gauge Design with Bird Spike Kit.

Product Review March 13, 2018
Reviewer: Jim Bradbury from Rowlett, TX United States  
The unit received in excellent condition.
The new console won't talk to my weewx software - I don't know if the problem is with the console or the weewx software.
So, I'm using my old console - which works. I'm still investigating. Weather website http://rowlett.ws
