Digital and analog rainfall measuring sensors

Rain Gauge


Precipitation sensor type is designed to measure the amount and intensity of rain by using the tipping bucket rain gauge system. The optional type with built-in heating is -in a limited range- able to measure solid precipitation (snow, hail) as well.
The orifice of this instrument is approx. 200 cm², approaching the rules of the German Meteorological Service. The corresponding bucket content is 4 cm³, featuring a resolution of 0.2 mm precipitation.
Precipitation events can be recorded by means of a built-in data logger.
