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" of rainfall. The gauge has an 8" orifice and is manufactured of powder coated an anodized aluminum. The funnel screen prevents debris from entering the gauge.

The 260-2103 Rain Logger is an event data logger that connects to standard tipping bucket rain gauges to provide detailed rainfall history. The data can be useful in a wide range of fields such as agriculture, forestry, hydrology, and climatology.

This compact unit comes in a weatherproof case. It records the date and time of each bucket tip, along with the accumulated hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly totals. Data is stored in nonvolatile EEPROM memory that retains collected data even if the battery fails. The LCD display shows the total accumulated rainfall. Includes USB cable for direct, fast and easy data retrieval and analysis.
