Here at RS Hydro we have introduced the Solinst Rainlogger Edge Model 3002 to our already extensive range of Solinst equipment. This model has been specifically designed to record the number of tips of a standard tipping bucket rain gauge with a reed switch output. This is the perfect inexpensive option combining compact durability, low maintenance requirements and long term reliability. Improved ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection along with ABS housing is a standard feature of this device.
The Solinst Rainlogger Edge logs up to 60,000 readings which are all conveniently time stamped and the total rainfall per time period is logged in the non-volatile memory. Samples are recorded at each tip of the tipping bucket. Rainfall data is important because it enables correlation between precipitation events and changes in groundwater or surface water levels.
This device is compatible with all Solinst Levelogger deployment and communication accessories, it is very simple to download logged data either direct to a PC or to a hand held leveloader. The added advantage is its versatile ability to integrate into a Solinst Telemetry System and the option to communicate using SDI-12 protocol.
