The 6" Rain Gauge is a durable weather instrument for monitoring
rain rate and total rainfall. With minimal care it will provide
many years of service. The rain gauge is constructed of high
impact UV-protected plastic to provide reliable low cost tipping
bucket rainfall monitoring.
The unit has a 6 inch orifi ce and is shipped complete with
mounting bracket 50 feet of two conductor cable. The tipping
bucket sensor mechanism activates a sealed reed switch that
produces a contact closure for each 0.01 inch or 0.25 mm of
rainfall. Order the optional 4-20 mA converter module to convert
contact closures to 4-20 output.
