About This Station

This station has been established in july 2012.
In this weather station we are using Davis Vantage Pro 2 devices.

The weather station is located 70 meters above sea level.
Security cameras cover the property area.

Vantage Pro 2 ISS (pictured below). ISS consists a rain collector, heat and humidity sensors.
The measurement data is sent using the wireless transmitter on 866 MHz frequency to the console.
Daytime Fan Aspirated Radiation Shield Kit is added to the ISS to increase the heat-moisture sensors accuracy.
The sensors are placed in chamber and fan draws outside air over the temperature and humidity sensors around 2.5 m / s.
Power to ISS is obtained from solar panel.
The Panel gives energy to the wireless transmitter, ISS and day-time fan and charges the super capacitor for night operation.
Lithium battery provides backup on cloudy, wintry days. ISS is mounted 2 m above the ground.

The console runs on batteries. The AC adapter is there, but it is usually not needed.
The console receiving measurement data: The wind speed and direction of about every 3. seconds, the amount of rain about every 25. seconds, ambient temperature at intervals of about every 10 seconds and humidity about every 1. minute intervals.
From console the data is transferred via USB data logger to the PC where the data are processed.
