Overview

The RG1 standard rain gauge was designed as a universal rain gauge, that is suitable for most applications. There are two versions of the RG1 rain gauge available. Both are built to last, in agriculture as well as in hydrographical or meteorological applications and in rough environments.

The RG1 200 cm2 0.2mm rain gauge weighs less than half a kilo and is suited for both mast and floor mounting. The rainfall measurement is carried out by a double tipping bucket system that's factory calibrated to remain within a <2% accuracy in rain falls up to 60mm per hour. The steep angle of the buckets makes water runoff quickly and thus prevents the build-up of residue, like sand or dust in the buckets.

The RG1 400 cm2 0.1mm rain gauge weighs in at approx. 750gr. and is also suited for both mast and floor mounting. With its large orifice of 400cm2 and its high resolution of 0.1mm it is ideally suited for areas with light to moderate rainfall intensity. The double tipping bucket rain gauge system is factory calibrated to remain within a <2% accuracy in rain falls up to 30mm per hour.

Water is collected through the rain gauge funnel with an orifice of 200 cm2 or 400cm2 (depending on the version). Leaves and bird droppings are kept out of it by an aluminium filter, which is easily removed for cleaning. The funnel attaches to the body with a bayonet-style lock, which prevents the funnel from being shaken off in heavy winds.

All parts (except the buckets) of the RG1 raingauge are made of anodized aluminium for extra protection and durability.

The rain gauge comes complete with all mast mounting equipment, two pipe clamps, and a shielded 1m cable with a 7-pin Binder jack, compatible to all RTU's of the A723, A733 and A753 families.
