Our inventory has the improved rain cone design introduced in 2014. The changes include grip grooves, bird spikes, a new debris screen and the Davis logo.
Connect your Davis Instruments® wireless weather station to the internet using the AirBridge WiFi server. The Ambient AirBridge is the easiest way to send your real-time data to Wunderground.com and the Internet.The Ambient AirBridge:
The Ambient Weather AirBridge communicates directly to the VantagePro2™ wireless sensor suite (included).
A display console (included) or data logger (optional) is not required to send data directly to the Internet. The AirBridge has a built in spread spectrum wireless receiver. Simply connect the AirBridge to the Internet (via ethernet or wifi), create an online account with any one of the supported weather cloud services, and you will be reporting real-time weather data in minutes.
The AirBridge provides two levels of wireless connectivity. The AirBridge recieves weather station data from the Davis Instruments sensor suite, and the AirBridge sends data to your router using standard WiFi protocols.
Internet Protocol or IP Network Weather Stations update weather servers real-time, providing up to the second data without the use of a PC. There are no networking fees. Perfect for low consumption requirements, remote monitoring applications, or weather station owners that do not want to leave their PC on 24/7. WiFi allows you the freedom to move your display console anywhere in your home or office while still reporting to the internet.The Davis Instruments 6163 Fan Aspirated VantagePro2™ Plus wireless weather station:

Includes Vantage Pro2 console/receiver, integrated sensor suite (ISS), and mounting hardware. The ISS includes rain collector, temperature and humidity sensors, anemometer, 40' (12 m) anemometer cable, solar radiation sensor, UV sensor and solar panel. Temperature and humidity sensors are enclosed in our patented, solar-powered, 24-hour fan-aspirated radiation shield. Shield combines active and passive aspiration to minimize the effects of radiation.
ISS is solar powered. Electronic components are housed in a weather-resistant shelter. Console may be powered using the included AC-power adapter or with three C batteries (not included).
Wireless range is up to 1000' (300 m) outdoors, line of sight. Typical range through walls under most conditions is 200' to 400' (60 to 120 m). Add wireless repeaters for distances up to 1.7 miles (2.7 km).Note:

The AirBridge appliance is an entire Linux computer built into a compact 3.5 x 2.5 x 1.0" package. Avoid the high operating costs and low reliability of connecting to a PC.
A web interface provides password protection, programming, networking, and real-time data.
The low power module provides up to the second data analysis using Weather Underground's Rapid Fire Technology. Data is archived on Weather Underground and can be imported into excel or database applications. Live XML weather feeds provide easy television, radio and web integration.
Reports outdoor temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, barometric pressure, rainfall, and calculated parameters, such as dew point, heat index, wind chill and rain rate.Notes and Caveats:
Attention Virtual Weather Station and WeatherLink software users: Please note that the AirBridge appliance does not communicate directly to WeatherLink or Virtual Weather Station software. However, an SDK (software development kit) is available.
- The AirBridge does not support an indoor humidity sensor.
- The indoor temperature is measured inside the AirBridge receiver, and subject to internal heating, and does not accurately reflect ambient temperature.
- The wireless range of the AirBridge receiver is approximately 300 feet, unlike the Davis Instruments® VantagePro2™, VantagePro2 Plus™ and VantageVue™ wireless display consoles, which have a 1,000 feet wireless range. However, the AirBridge is also wireless to your router, extending the range an additional 200 feet.
