Log data from up to 8 different transmitters, in any combination, and report
to a weather database.
With 32 times the memory of our Weather Envoy, Envoy8X receives and logs data
simultaneously from up to eight transmitting stations, in any combination--even
eight Integrated Sensor Suites or eight Leaf Wetness & Soil Moisture/Temperature
Stations! That means you can get data from 32 soil moisture sensors on one
Envoy8X! Includes robust software that allows for data from many sensors and
multiple Envoy8Xs to produce very large databases in Microsoft Access®, MySQL®,
or Microsoft SQL Server®. You select which sensors to log, and choose a logging
interval from 10 seconds to 2 hours. Use archive intervals as small as 30
seconds. You can even add select third-party sensors that report readings in a
0-3 volt range. Data can be easily exported to a spreadsheet program such as
Excel®, or to WeatherLink to take advantage of WeatherLink's graphing and
The Envoy8X includes:
- Envoy8X software
- AC adapter
Also works with AA batteries (not included). Requires at least one Davis
sensor and a WeatherLink USB (#6510USB) or Serial (#6510SER) data logger, sold
- Collect and store weather data in your own database from up to 8 Davis
stations or 32 soil moisture sensors.
- Data can be exported to and used in Microsoft Access, Excel, SQL Server.
- 32 times more data logging capacity than our regular Envoy.
- Use archive intervals as small as 30 seconds.
- Export for use with WeatherLink
- Fully compatible with our wireless Vantage Pro2 and Vantage Vue stations
and sensors. This includes repeaters.
- Compatible with a solar power kit (#6610) and System Shelter (#7724)
- Use non-Davis sensors through the "raw data" specification
Storage capacity depends upon the logging interval, but is so large that you
can download a remote field installation when it's most convenient. For example,
an Envoy8X logging two Integrated Sensor Suites and two Soil Moisture/Leaf
Wetness stations at a 15-minute update interval will store over 365 days worth
Envoy8X has built-in temperature and humidity sensors, as well as a
barometer. The software will report data from those sensors as "inside" data,
effectively giving you a ninth "station." You may connect an external
temperature probe (6475 or 6477) to replace the Envoy8X's internal temperature
probe. Receives data from all Vantage Pro2 radios and repeaters. Includes an
AC-power adapter; may also be run using Solar Power Kit (7707), or on three AA
batteries. Expected battery life is one to four months depending on the logging
interval. Requires WeatherLink for Windows (USB or Serial).
