Description

Discontinued – while stocks last! (Replaced in early 2023 by the 6252 and 6253 Davis Instruments Vantage Pro 2 bundles.)

The wireless Davis Instruments Vantage Pro 2 (VP2) bundles include a Vantage Pro 2 integrated sensor suite (ISS) and a 6312NZ Vantage Pro 2 display console. The solar-powered sensor suite (ISS)  transmits the weather data it collects wirelessly up to 300m line of sight. The VP2 console receives and displays your data.

  • Tried and tested, the Vantage Pro 2 has been in production for almost 20 years
  • Anemometer has a 12m cable so it can be mounted separately to the main sensor suite
  • There are a wide range of parts available for the VP2 ISS and we keep them in stock
  • The larger size and the shape of the Aerocone rain collector means a more accurate rain reading that the smaller Vantage Vue rain collector
  • Compliant with New Zealand’s Radio Communications Act and Regulations
Why buy this bundle?
  • It is the cheapest wireless VP2 sensor suite/console bundle available (while stocks last)
  • You want a version of the wireless Vantage Pro 2 that is compatible with a 6510 Davis Instruments WeatherLink serial or USB data logger and WeatherLink Desktop software
  • To use as a stand alone, offline, weather station. Particularly useful with a 6510USB WeatherLink data logger (and a 6614 Solar Power Kit if required) if you want a cost-effective way to record data at a remote site with no internet access, cellular coverage or power
  • For the retro charm of the original Vantage Pro 2 console
Choose the bundle that suits you best:
6152NZ bundle – 6322NZ wireless Vantage Pro 2 sensor suite & 6312 wireless Vantage Pro 2 console
  • Measures wind speed and direction, rain, temperature, humidity and barometric pressure
  • Standard radiation shield
6153NZ bundle – 6323NZ wireless Vantage Pro 2 sensor suite with 24hr FARS & 6312 wireless Vantage Pro 2 console
  • Measures wind speed and direction, rain, temperature, humidity and barometric pressure
  • 24-hour fan-aspirated radiation shield (FARS)
Which radiation shield  suits your site: the Standard or 24 hour Fan-Aspirated Radiation Screen (FARS)?

The purpose of the FARS unit is to regulate the sensor readings and maximise the sensor accuracy by circulating the air in the radiation shield around the temperature/humidity sensor. However, for most locations in New Zealand, nature kindly assists with this, so a standard radiation shield is enough. A FARS unit on your sensor suite can be a great piece of kit for situations where there is little wind and the temperature reading is important, such as inside a shelter belt on an orchard where there is lots of sun and not much breeze for circulation.
