Product Information

Precipitation sensor/ombrometer

This device is used to record readings of precipitation volume and intensity for digital transmission of these measurements. The measurement principle is based on the description in the »Guide to Meteorological Instruments No. 8« from the WMO. The tipping actions of the tipping bucket are recorded by a contact and read out via the electronics as a pulse for further processing using intensity-related linearisation. This precipitation sensor is made from weather-resistant stainless steel and is also available with 49 W and reinforced 113 W housing heaters. As a result it is especially suitable for use in mountains.

 

Advantages

  • Also suitable for very cold measurement conditions
