MeteoRain® 200 Compact

Make:  Barani Design    Model:  MeteoRain-200 Compact
✅ Multiple mounting options.
✅ Robust and impact resistant funnel and housing.
✅ Errors from non-level mounting are minimized with the self-balancing design.
✅ Easy adjustment and recalibration of internal measuring mechanism.
✅ Bird-spikes are available. Leaf fence is not required due to self-cleaning funnel.
✅ Low-profile funnel for easy cleaning with a sharp edge for accuracy.

The only compact professional 200 cm² ultra-low-power rain gauge capable of high-precision rain measurement without regular maintenance. It is designed for mass sensor deployments in smart cities and smart agriculture. Its high accuracy and repeatability of measurement makes it suitable for replacing aging WMO and NWS compliant meteorological equipment.

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 its 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.

Self-balancing, self-emptying magnetic tipping bucket technology to ensure uninterrupted measurement of precipitation regardless of amount and intensity.
It measures rain by means of a standardized orifice funnel which collects water into the precision measuring mechanism. The mechanism offers more consistent long-term response than any other standard tipping-bucket rain gauge.

Individually tested
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.
