Raingauge - HD2013 series and HD2015 series. Tipping bucket.
Rain gauges with tipping bucket for temperature range +4°C... +60°C. Standard resolution 0.2. On request: resolution 0.1 or 0.5mm. Output contact normally closed
Reliable and sturdy bucket rain gauges, built entirely from corrosion resistant materials in order to guarantee durability.
To ensure accurate measurement even with low temperature climatic conditions or during and after precipitations of snow, a version with a heater which is automatically activated around +4°C has been developed so that snow deposits and ice formations are prevented.
The rain gauge is formed by a metal base on which a tipping bucket is set. The rain collector cone, fixed to the aluminium cylinder, channels the water inside the tipping bucket: once the predefined level is reached, the calibrated bucked rotates under the action of its own weight, discharging the water. During the rotation phase, the usually closed reed contact opens for a fraction of a second, sending an impulse to the counter. The quantity of rainfall measured is based on the count of the number of times the bucket is emptied: the reed contacts, usually closed, open at the moment of the rotation between one bucket’s section and the other
