Precipitation Transmitter/ Ombrometer with analogue output

Product Description


Analogue output.
with intensity-dependent linearization.

The instrument serves as measuring value sensor for precipitation quantity and intensity for the analogue measuring value transmission. The measuring principle is based on the description of the “Guide to Meteorological Instruments No. 8” of the WMO. The tipping procedures of a tipping bucket are detected by a contact and output via electronics as impulses for further processing.
The following output functions are selectable:
The analogue output is available as sum value proportionally to the precipitation impulses. Here, the analogue value is automatically reset to 0 mm precipitation in case of measuring range exceeding, or by an external impulse.
The analogue output can be delivered as gliding sum value over a selectable time
(10/60 min., 6/24 h).
