MeteoRain® 200 Compact:
The only 200 cm2 compact professional ultra-low-power rain gauge capable of high-precision rain measurement without the need for routine maintenance. It is designed for mass sensor deployments in smart cities and smart agriculture. It is high accuracy and repeatability of measurement make it suitable for replacing aging WMO and NWS-compliant meteorological equipment.
The new self-balancing magnetic tipping bucket reduces and resists the effects of dirt, vibration, and installation leveling errors. It is more accurate than many “professional rain gauges” and shares the self-balancing magnetic tipping bucket mechanism with the soon-to-be-released MeteoRain® 400 Professional.
- Durable impact-resistant and UV sunlight-resistant materials
- Excellent accuracy of rain measurement with long-term maintenance-free operation due to the simplicity of design
- Dirt & dust resistant magnetic self-balancing measurement principle
- For hydrology, urban meteorology, agriculture, smart-city, resilient city, and research.
Magnetic tipping bucket technology that self-balances and self-empties to ensure continuous measurement of precipitation regardless of amount or intensity.
It measures rain by means of a standardized orifice funnel that collects water into the precision measuring mechanism. The mechanism offers a more consistent long-term response than any other standard tipping-bucket rain gauge.
Rain gauges are individually tested and use high-quality, sealed reed switches. Electronics are protected against salt spray, water, frost, and heat by a weather-resistant coating.
