Antennas and Repeaters
For longer distances or to improve reception in troublesome areas, add one or more wireless repeaters. Use repeaters in a daisy chain, retransmitting from a single Vantage Pro2 or Vantage Vue Integrated Sensor Suite, or special-purpose station. You can also build a network of repeaters and wireless stations, with some repeaters listening to multiple stations, each with their own unique ID. For use with any Davis wireless transmitter and receiver.
Long-Range Wireless Repeaters (7654)
In our testing, we achieved an incredible four miles (6,4 km) of transmission distance using two of our long-range repeaters with Yagi antennas. Range varies depending on antenna height, the terrain and foliage, buildings, other man-made structures, and RF interference. Ideal for agricultural or research applications where long distances are an issue. This solar-powered model includes solar panel and lithium backup battery. Antennas are sold separately.
Standard Wireless Repeaters (7627)
Ideal for most applications, uses the same dipole antenna found on all of our wireless stations.
Range is up to 1,000 ft. (300 m) outdoors, line of sight. Typical range through walls is 200 ft.
to 400 ft. (60 to 120 m). Solar-powered model includes solar panel and lithium backup battery.
Antennas for Long-Range Repeaters
For use with our long-range repeaters. Each repeater requires two antennas: one to receive
data, and another to retransmit it. Omni (7656) antennas transmit or receive in all directions. Yagi (7660) antennas transmit or receive from a single direction, but have a longer transmission distance. Mix and match to suit your needs.
