Anodized Aluminum Rain Gauge

The RainWise model RGA industrial tipping bucket rain gauge is constructed from anodized aluminum and stainless steel to provide years of precision recording of rainfall data. The tipping bucket is molded from a specially-formulated plastic that has a very low surface tension coefficient. The weight of the water required to make the bucket tip produces a momentary switch closure that is equal to 0.01 inch/0.25mm of rainfall. This momentary pulse may be used in a system to determine either rainfall amount and/or rate. The same tip that produces the pulse also dumps the bucket so that the gauge never requires emptying. The tipping bucket sensor is mounted on stainless steel instrument bearings and housed in an anodized aluminum case.
