Precipitation Gauges

 

Continuous, automatic recording of precipitation amount

For recording any kind of precipitation (rain) with its intensity in the nature usually tipping bucket precipitation gauges and samplers are used. If precipitation has to be measured also in winter with temperatures below the freezing point, the measuring instrument has to be equipped with a heating.

 

Tipping Bucket Precipitation Gauge MR2

The tipping bucket rain measuring system MR2 is a compact precipitation gauge for recording the rain quantity and intensity with a measuring area of 200 cm². The MR2 works with a rocker, which is mounted smoothly. As an option, the precipitation gauge can be equipped with a heating system as to ensure an operation the whole year-round. For the heating of the gauge a power supply (220/230 V AC) is necessary because of the high power consumption of the self.

 

Technical details

  • Measuring element/-principle tipping bucket measuring system
  • Measuring area 200 cm²; resolution: 0.2 mm
  • Output impulse (potential-free contact)
  • Protection IP 65
  • Dimensions ø 180 mm; height 270 mm
  • Mounting on pillar or bracket

 

Tipping Bucket Precipitation Gauge MR3

The tipping bucket rain measuring system MR3 is a compact precipitation gauge for recording the rain quantity and intensity with a measuring area of 500 cm². The MR3 works with a rocker, which is mounted smoothly. As an option, the precipitation gauge can be equipped with a heating system as to ensure an operation the whole year-round. For the heating of the gauge a power supply (220/230 V AC) is necessary because of the high power consumption of the self. The measuring area of 500cm² and the resolution of 0.1 mm conforms to the WMO-standards.
