Our most popular solution for agricultural users combines a wireless Vantage Pro2 Integrated Sensor Suite with a solar irradiance sensor and daytime fan-aspirated radiation shield and Vantage Connect telemetry to create a robust and reliable weather system. The system includes the sensors, software and alert functions you need to receive real-time frost alerts, monitor and record wind conditions prior to spraying and to calculate evapotranspiration (ET), growing degree days and chill hour accumulation based on local conditions in your field. Adding special-purpose stations will expand your system’s capabilities even further. Your data is always accessible on the web or on your smartphone.
WIRELESS OUTDOOR SENSOR SUITE
Includes integrated sensors for wind, rain, solar radiation, and temperature/humidity in a daytime fan-aspirated radiation shield for greater accuracy.
Get useful wind speed and wind direction with anemometer that can be sited above the crop canopy, or at ground level for spray control.
Get alerts on your phone or by email when frost, high winds or other conditions you select reach specified levels.
GET DATA FROM ANY REMOTE SITE WITH CELLULAR COVERAGE
Data is transmitted from the sensor suite to the Vantage Connect, mounted up to 1000 feet (300 meters) away. From there it is communicated via cellular connection to the web.
TRACK ET, GDD, CHILL HOURS WITH WEATHERLINK
Download your data to your PC and use WeatherLink software, included with Vantage Connect, to help you track evapotranspiration (ET), growing degree days (GDD) and chill hour accumulation.
FREE WEATHER APPS
See your data on your smartphone with our free app for iPhone or Android.
It's rare that we get cold enough in late spring to worry about frost, but daytime temperatures affect when each kind of grape ripens. We need to pick our grapes at the perfect moment. The historical data, real-time data and alarms will really make this decision clearer. I'm really looking forward to correlating the historical weather data to our wines. That kind of data will be very, very useful. I really appreciate that I can add special stations and sensors as my planted area expands and our business grows.
