Constructed entirely of stainless steel.
- Rain enters the gauge through an 20cm orifice, protected by distortion preventing aluminum ring.
- Collected water passes through the debris-filtering screen and is funneled into one of two tipping buckets inside the gauge.
- When a given amount of water collects, the bucket tips.
(Tip of 0.2mm is standard).
- Tipping causes magnet to pass over proximity switch, closing it momentarily.
- Second bucket positions under funnel for filling.
- After rain is measured, it exits through drain tubes with screen covered holes in the base of the gauge.
- Designed for many years of accurate, trouble free operation.
- Stainless steel outer housing.
- Built in level indicator and pre-drilled feet.
- Meteorological Station
- Storm Water Management
- Catchment Hydrology
