Enabling better global research outcomes in soil, plant & environmental monitoring.

SRG0 Stainless Steel Rain Gauge

The SRG0 is a research grade Rain Gauge with 0.2mm tips and high accuracy during intense rainfall events.

Rain Gauge Features

  • Stainless Steel
  • Resolution of 0.2 mm
  • Accuracy of ±2% at 125 mm/hr


Utilising the SRG0 sensor in a custom IoT (Internet of Things) package

The SNiP-SRG is a ‘Sensor Node Integrated Package’ for LoRaWAN communication of real-time rainfall and precipitation measurements for continuous environmental monitoring.

The base SNiP-SRG integrates 1x SRG0 Research Grade Tipping Bucket with 1x AD-NODE to a site’s unique network, communication and power requirements.

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.


    • Meteorological Station
    • Storm Water Management
    • Catchment Hydrology
