ALL Features
The Vantage Pro2 (# 6152, 6153) and Vantage Pro2 Plus (# 6162, 6163) Wireless Weather Stations include two components: the Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) which houses and manages the external sensor array, and the console which provides the user interface, data display, A/D conversion in the ISS, and calculations.

The ISS and Vantage Pro2 console communicate via an FCC-certified, license-free frequency hopping transmitter and receiver. User selectable transmitter ID codes allow up to eight stations to coexist in the same geographic area. The frequency hopping spread spectrum technology provides greater communication strength over longer distances and areas of weaker reception.

The Wireless Vantage Pro2 Plus weather station includes two additional sensors that are optional on the Vantage Pro2: the UV Sensor and the Solar Radiation Sensor.

The console may be powered by batteries or by the included AC-power adapter. The wireless ISS is solar powered with a battery backup.

Use WeatherLink for Vantage Pro and Vantage Pro2 to let your weather station interface with a computer, to log weather data, and to upload weather information to the internet.

The 6152 and 6162 rely on passive shielding to reduce solar-radiation induced temperature errors in the outside temperature sensor readings. The Fan-aspirated 6153 and 6163 combine passive shielding with a solar-powered fan that draws outside air in over the temperature and humidity sensors, providing a much more accurate temperature reading than that available using passive shielding alone.

5 of 5 David Vantage Pro 2 plus wireless February 25, 2011
Reviewer: D Klatt from Saskatoon, SK Canada  
Durable, reliable, accurate and with more features than I'll ever need!  Wireless range is excellent, even without repeaters.  Batteries generally last longer than Davis' estimates.  Computer interfacing is straight-forward, although the readout window is somewhat elementary in terms of visual aesthetics.  This is a professional system, with many additional sensor options for specialty needs.  Highly recommended - I haven't seen anyting better at this price.

5 of 5 Davis Weather Station February 20, 2008
Reviewer: Alan M. Webb from CT, USA  
Wonderful. I got this for Christmas as a replacement for my ailing Oregon Scientific station. This costs a bit more, but it really is a much better engineered package. Of particular note - all of the wiring is enclosed, unless you opt for remote placement of the anomometer. I have it hooked up to permanently forward my data to  100% recommended.
