New Industrial Rain Gauge Converter

16-September-2013

xyz (1)Environdata has released a rain gauge converter, RGC12, that makes it easy to connect their standard RG12 Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge to a digital input on any Industrial system, in spite of the number of different interfaces used in these systems.  The new converter makes this easy by providing a choice of three different outputs that can source or sink current as well as two sets of isolated contacts.  It also includes a diagnosis procedure to simplify setup and a ‘test’ button that simplifies installation by simulating a rainfall tip.

The new converter should be used where the sensor is to be connected directly to an Industrial system, such as a Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Remote Telemetry Units (RTU), or Building Management Systems (BMS).
