Tipping bucket rain gauge RG20
The sensor is made up of a funnel collector and a couple of calibrated collecting containers (tipping buckets). The calibrated collector area and the geometry of the collector prevents the rain from splashing in and out, according to WMO recommendations (World Meteorological Organization). Every time a bucket is filled, the instrument outputs an electrical signal that can be sent to an automatic data acquisition system. If precipitation is in a solid form, snow or hail, the instrument can measure the amount of water obtained from their melting.
The rain gauge is to connect to a datalogger from the LOG V3 range by its M12 connector. The logger has a 500 000 measures capacity, communication options to define :
The loggers are different in term of functionalities has they have their own configuration application templates :
- LOG03V3 (4-20mA – DIGITAL) : Groundwater resources, CSO / SSO, Flow using pressure probe, Lift stations, Access point Hf/GPRS, …
- LOG04V3 (Modbus RS485 – DIGITAL) : Area-Velocity Flow, CSO / SSO, Access point HF/Modbus/GPRS, Lift stations, Water quality, …
- LOG10V3 (RS485 / Digital inputs / External ultrasonic probe) : Area-Velocity Flow, CSO / SSO, Access point HF/Modbus/GPRS, Lift station, Water quality, …
A configuration kit such as the Wiji USB/HF stick (Wiji USB/HF stick) allows to connect by radio to the rain gauge logger and set the configuration, and also to download on-site the data.
