    Product Description

    Includes free shipping, free returns, required batteries plus our exclusive double warranty, all valued at over $158.45

    First and only weather station in its class to use frequency hopping spread spectrum radio technology to transmit weather data wirelessly up to 300 m. Includes Vantage Pro2 console/receiver, integrated sensor suite (ISS), and mounting hardware. ISS includes rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors, anemometer, 12 m anemometer cable, solar radiation sensor, UV sensor, sensor mounting shelf, and solar panel.

    Temperature and humidity sensors are enclosed in our patented, solar-powered, 24-hour fan-aspirated radiation shield. Shield combines fan aspiration and passive shielding to minimize the effects of solar radiation.

    ISS is solar powered. Electronic components are housed in a weather-resistant shelter. Console may be powered using the included AC-power adapter or with three C batteries (not included).

            

    Wireless range is up to 300 m outdoors, line of sight. Typical range through walls under most conditions is 60 to 120 m. Add wireless repeaters for distances up to 2.7 km.
