Vantage Console

Davis Vantage Pro2/FARS Console

(updated every 30 seconds)

The Wireless Vantage Pro2 Plus 6163UK is an expandable, professional weather station that displays and records barometric pressure, temperature, humidity, rainfall, wind, solar radiation and UV. (Except my UV sensor broke and Davis wouldn’t replace it under warranty. It lasted about 14 months.)

The console gives calculated values such as wind chill, dew point and evapotranspiration as well as forecasting and a current conditions “ticker”. The anemometer can be mounted separately up to 40ft (12m) from the rain collector. All Vantage Pro2 stations include a versatile integrated sensor suite that can be customised by adding further sensors.
