6614 Solar Power Kit Shelter
The 6614 is based on the 6618 universal shelter with the addition of a solar power kit which allows you to locate your weather station outside at a field or remote location. It is designed for use at unattended remote sites where there is no mains power and it's impracticable or undesirable to visit the site often to replace batteries.
The 6614 is suitable for any Davis console (VP2, Vue, Envoy or Envoy8X) which can be placed inside the shelter and powered long-term from the solar power supply. It includes a 5W solar panel on the front of the door, plus a 6v 1.5Ah lead-acid battery and regulator.
The shelter is designed with a hinged front door with a rubber seal and with two small grommeted cable access ports in the bottom of the compartment. U-bolt fixings are provided top and bottom to allow the shelter to be secured to a vertical pole (or, alternatively, fixed back to a flat surface).
The 6614 solar PSU is generally suitable for use with wirelss VP2 and Vue stations and in locations where winter sunshine is reasonable, but for cabled VP2 stations with their heavier current draw and for general user in higher latitudes where winter sunshine may be limited, the 6612 heavy duty solar PSU is recommended.
