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.

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.Read More
An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
