Tipping Bucket Rain Gage

Part # 48195

rain gage

The tipping bucket rain gage is recognized as the standard for measuring rainfall and other precipitation in remote and unattended locations.

The integrated siphon mechanism delivers high levels of accuracy across a broad range of rainfall intensities. Each unit consists of a collector funnel with stainless steel leaf filter, an integrated siphon control mechanism, an outer enclosure with quick release fasteners, and base which houses the tipping bucket mechanism. The unit includes dual output reed switches with varistor protection (helps shield sensitive components against excessive transient voltage) as well as dual rainfall discharge outlets for water collection and/or analysis.

The bucket tips when precipitation of 0.01", 0.2 mm, 0.5 mm or 1.0 mm has been collected. Each tip activates a reed switch closure which is detected by a data logger and/or telemetry system.

It's also available with a larger collector measuring 11.1" (282.8 mm) in diameter.

What's the Easiest and Quickest Way to Start Collecting Data and Access it Anywhere?

The Answer's in the Cloud.

eTracker is a cellular modem and "virtual" cloud-based data logger in one (meaning you don't need to install a separate data logger). Simply connect your sensor and a power source to eTracker and you're done. Configure (or reconfigure) anytime from any Internet-connected device, and use Stevens-Connect to retrieve your data, or forward it to your favorite software system.
