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 Model 6163 Wireless 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.

Great Service!! April 1, 2016
Reviewer: Ronald M. Thomas from Bay Minette, AL United States  
I ordered this product on a Friday and it was delivered by the next Friday!  Davis products speak for themselves, but ordering from Scientific Sales was a pleasure.

Shipping was VERY quick. March 14, 2016
Reviewer: G from Plant City, FL United States  
Still working on getting everything set up -
need to find a good spot in my yard.

Pros:  Looks and feels high quality.
It's a bit bigger than I thought it would be.
Easy to put together.

Cons:  Not very happy that I have to calibrate settings.
This is done through WeatherLink (which sucks).
However, for spending this much money, they should be accurate from the start.
The console inside my house said it was about 4 degrees hotter than my AC is running at.   -  OK, I can fix that.  But how do I know actual settings of everything else, in order to calibrate them?

Overall, It's a keeper.  I'll probably use Cumulus, and have to have a computer running 24/7 to upload data to all the weather sources.

Great support October 26, 2015
Reviewer: Cary Christopherson from Littleton, CO United States  
I placed an order on-line, which in itself was a pleasant process.  An hour or so latter, I realized that I needed to change the order.  I called the 1-800 number and received terrific support to get the order changed.  Thanks!
