The Hall Effect sensor replaces the traditional Reed Switch, which has been superceded in all of our tipping bucket rain gauges. (A Reed Switch comprises a moving bi-metallic strip, which often led to breakdown of the detector over time). 
    The Hall Effect sensor is field-proven over the last 16 years, with a field life expected to exceed 100 years, and tens of millions of tips.
  • CUSTOMISABLE READING SCHEDULES
    Provides current readings, 10 minute, hourly and daily data summaries in 4 independent memory areas (or customised to your logging schedule)

Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge with Bird Protection - Tasmania Wilderness

Designed and built in Australia to survive in harsh conditions

  • The RG50 tipping bucket rain gauge (TBRG) is constructed from stainless steel with a powder coated cast aluminium base.
  • The copper inlet funnel has the correct angle to eliminate splash out.
  • The brass tipping bucket is gold plated, ensuring that water flows cleanly out of the bucket as it tips with no residue. Therefore tips are highly accurate and consistent.
  • The inlet funnel is fitted with a syphon to control and maintain a constant flow-rate into the buckets, this ensures reliable rainfall recording, even at very high rainfall intensities.
