The 260-2501-A Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge was designed for the National Weather Service to provide a reliable, low-cost tipping bucket rain sensor. It has been updated and improved with the addition of an inner funnel to even the flow of rainfall into the gauge, providing better accuracy at higher rainfall rates. Its simplicity of design assures trouble-free operation, yet provides accurate rainfall measurements. The tipping bucket mechanism activates a sealed reed switch that produces a contact closure for each 0.01" (0.25 mm) or 1 mm of rainfall. The gauge has an 8" orifice and is manufactured of powder coated and anodized aluminum. The funnel screen prevents debris from entering the gauge.

Ships complete with mounting legs and 25' of signal cable.

Our rain gauges can be supplied with a data logger, fully integrated and ready to use out of the box, additionally we can supply a pulse to 4-20 mA converter for anyone needing to integrated the rain gauge to SCADA, PLC or any other monitoring system via the 4-20 mA inputs.
