Constructed entirely of stainless steel.

  • Rain enters the gauge through an 20cm orifice, protected by distortion preventing aluminium ring.
  • Collected water passes through the debris-filtering screen and is funnelled 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.

    Applications:

    • Meteorological Station
    • Storm Water Management
    • Catchment Hydrology
