BAROMETER Five-position trend arrow shows whether barometric pressure is rising, falling, or stable. VARIABLE DISPLAY OPTIONS See updated variables every 10 seconds for heat index and wind chill to get a better “feel” for the outside environment. RAIN Console updates rain totals and rain rate every 20 seconds for the last 25 hours, days, months. “CHANGE IN WEATHER SINCE YESTERDAY” FEATURE Allows comparisons of changes of temperature and barometric pressure from day to day. WEATHER CENTER Weather Center provides additional information for each weather variable, such as daily highs and lows, temperature changes by the hour and barometric value changes. Also displays astronomical data such as meteor showers. USER-FRIENDLY KEYPAD Domed buttons are easy to sense and press. Glow-in-the-dark keypad buttons give you access to weather information all day and all night. The Done key returns user to “current” screen from anywhere in the program. GRAPHS Graph the last 25 hours, days or months. View up to 50 graphs including temperature, rain, rain rate, wind and barometric pressure—all on the console. “THIS TIME YESTER DAY” FEATURE Data point on the graph indicates the weather during the same time yesterday to help compare and analyze day-to-day weather trends. ALARMS Set 22 simultaneous, different alarms to warn of dangers such as high winds, freezing temperatures, rain rate, flood warning, and more. WIND SPEED See windspeed updates every 2.5 seconds. Displays windspeed in miles per hour, meters per second, kilometers per hour and knots. Provides the average and high wind speed for two-minute and ten-minute intervals. ISS WIRELESS Frequency-hopping spread spectrum radio ensures consistent transmission up to 1,000 ft. (300 m) from integrated sensor suite to console. RAIN COLLECTOR Self-emptying tipping spoon measures rain with .01″ (0,2 mm) resolution. ANEMOMETER 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. RADIATION SHIELD Provides excellent protection from solar radiation and other sources of radiated and reflected heat.
