The Davis Vantage Vue Wireless Integrated Sensor Suite combines a rain collector, temperature/humidity sensors and anemometer/direction vane into a single unit.
The Vantage Vue® wireless Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) collects outside weather data and sends the data wirelessly to a Vantage Vue console via a low-power radio. The ISS is solar powered and includes a battery back-up.
The Vantage Vue ISS contains a rain collector, temperature/humidity sensor, anemometer, and wind vane. The temperature/humidity sensor is mounted in a passive radiation shield to minimize the impact of solar radiation on sensor readings. The anemometer measures wind speed, and the wind vane measures wind direction.
The Sensor Interface Module (SIM) is housed within the ISS and comprises the “brains” of the Vantage Vue system and the radio transmitter. The SIM collects outside weather data from the ISS sensors and transmits that data to your Vantage Vue console.
The fully-integrated, corrosion-proof sensor suite is built to take all the weather your location can give. The smaller profile sensor suite is designed to minimize visual impact in your yard or on your roof.
Frequency-hopping spread spectrum radio ensures consistent transmission up to 1,000' (300M) from integrated sensor suite to console.
Self-emptying tipping spoon measures rain with .01" (0,2 mm) resolution.
Vantage Vue records wind speeds as low as 2 mph (3 km/h) and as high as 180 mph (290 km/h).
Weather Proof Cover
Corrosion-resistant cover provides durability in extreme conditions. Electronics are potted or over-molded for added moisture shielding.
Provides excellent protection from solar radiation and other sources of radiated and reflected heat.
Provides outside temperature readings from -40°F to 150°F (-40°C to 65°C). Also measures relative humidity from 0 to 100%.
Installs easily and quickly with included mounting hardware kit.
Measures wind direction in compass points or degrees.
Energizes the station during the day. On-board super capacitor provides power at night. Lithium battery provides backup when needed.
Allows for more accurate installation and better data collection.

Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.Read More
For all the straightforward groundwater monitoring applications that the folks at Heron Instruments help with, there are a few that are far from typical. These include projects that take place near remediation sites or not far from waste disposal operations. Realizing that customers working in those sorts of projects are in need of a more robust option, the company has released the dipper-Tough . The new water level meter takes inspiration from Heron’s popular dipper-T , while throwing in a host of improvements that environmental pros working in groundwater can really appreciate.Read More
Scientists at Ohio State University are at the fore of the fight against harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie. In fact, they deployed a new cellular data buoy off the shore of Gibraltar Island in 2014, months before the Toledo Water Crisis spurred a boom in monitoring platforms around the lake. That was in part because researchers at the university’s Stone Laboratory, backed by Ohio Sea Grant and housed on Gibraltar, had been seeing a resurgence of blooms in the lake long before international attention came around following the crisis. There was an opportunity, they saw, to continue advancing the mission of research, education and outreach on Lake Erie. The cellular data buoy complimented that in a great way.Read More
