The Vantage Pro2 weather station is available in both wireless and cabled versions. In the cabled system, a cable runs from the outdoor sensor suite to the console inside. Quick view icons show the forecast at a glance: sunny, partly sunny, cloudy, rain or snow, while a moving ticker tape display gives more details. The integrated sensor suite combines a rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors, and anemometer into one package, making setup easier than ever and improving performance and reliability.For improved accuracy, temperature and humidity sensors are housed inside a radiation shield. The shield protects against solar radiation and other sources of radiated and reflected heat.
Anemometer includes: both wind speed and wind direction sensors. Rugged components stand up to hurricane-force winds, yet are sensitive to the lightest breeze. Wind-tunnel tested to speeds in excess of 170 miles per hour (274 km/h). Most components are factory assembled, so setup is as easy as possible. Just a few simple installation steps, and you're done.
