MODEL TR525USW Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge

The TR255USW Rain Gauge is a freestanding receptacle for measuring precipitation through an opening at the top of the device, rain is collected and then funneled to a mechanical device, called a tipping bucket. As water is collected, the tipping bucket fills to the point that it tips over, causing a momentary closure of a switch to incrementally measure rainfall accumulation. This action empties the bucket in preparation for additional measurement. Water discharged by the tipping bucket passes out of the rain gauge with no need for emptying.

The TR-525USW is specifically designed to meet the National Weather Service's requirements for rainfall measurement.

Optional Rain Gauge Heater

A rain gauge heater is available for applications where snow or freezing weather may occur. The rain gauge heater is an accessory to our line of TR-525 series rain gauge and consists of two low-power heating elements that prevent disruption in readings during freezing times. The heaters are thermostatically controlled with an additional thermal overload. The heaters are ideally balance to keep the gauge clear at all times yet minimize the amount of evaporation. (Note
