MeteoRain® 200 Compact rain gauge
Tipping-bucket rain gauge with a water collection surface of 200 cm². It displays a great resistance to the main causes of measuring bias: non-level mouting, shocs, vibrations, dirt and dust, water accumulation, etc.
The rain gauge is avaialble in two version: the Compact version must be connected to another system (like the MeteoHelix station) with a two-wire cable, the IoT version has a LoRaWAN connectivity.
The rain gauge measures rain fall and rain rate with a self-emptying tipping bucket, which has the unique capability of being self-balancing. Thus, it's very resistant to bad installations. The stability of the measurements is very good long-term. It's also easily calibrated using two screws below the rain gauge. The rain is measured via a normally-open magnetic reed switch (a normally closed switch is available upon request) requiring ultra-low power.
The factory default resolution is 0.2mm/tip, contact us for a resolution of 0.1mm/tip or 0.25mm/tip.
The plastic used is UV-resistant and hydrophobic, and thus, resistant to dirt and dust accumulation. It's adapted to all kinds of environment: urban meteorology, agriculture, research, etc.
The rain gauge is supplied with anti-bird spikes by default.
Online data on MeteoData
The data measured by the MeteoRain rain gauge can be consulted in real time and archived on our web platform MétéoData. The data is updated every 10 minutes.
The first year of subscription to MétéoData LoRaWAN is included in the purchase price (only available in France - contact us for installation in another country).
The platform allows you to :
