Met One Rain Gauge Model 370 (8 inch catch)
The Met One Instruments 370 Series all-metal precipitation gauge measures rain and/or snow in all environments using a tipping bucket mechanism. The economical tipping bucket design allows accurate, repeatable measurements, requiring no regular maintenance. The 370 Series is optimized to meet particular site and sampling requirements and exceeds EPA specifications.
Standard calibration (select when ordering): 0.01 in or 0.5 mm.
The Met One 370 rain gauge ships with 10 feet of cable.
When a precise amount of precipitation is collected in one side of the bucket, gravity tips the assembly and activates a reed switch. A momentary electrical contact closure is provided for each increment of rainfall. The sample is discharged through the base of the gauge.
