ABS Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge

It is a plastic rainfall gauge on a weather station. Compared with the standard stainless steel tipping bucket rain gauge, it is a more commercial rain gauge with a low price. It adopts the working principle of the standard tipping bucket rain gauge, but due to material problems, accuracy and service life are slightly lower than stainless steel rain gauge. If you are a beginner in the rain gauge, or if you have a limited budget and want to buy a cheap rain gauge, then our abs tipping bucket rain gauge will be your best choice.

ABS tipping bucket rain gauge features:

1. Small size, easy installation, good stability.
2. Good linearity, long transmission distance, strong anti-interference ability.
3. Mesh holes are designed at the funnel to prevent leaves and other debris from blocking the rain flow down.
4. The tipping bucket component support system is well-manufactured and the frictional moment is small, so the tipping bucket components can be flipped sensitively and work reliably.
5. The shell of the plastic rain gauge is made of ABS engineering plastics, no rust, good appearance quality.
6. The rain-bearing mouth is made of ABS engineering plastic injection molding, with high smoothness and small errors caused by stagnant water.
7. There is a level adjustment bubble inside the chassis, which can assist the bottom corner to adjust the equipment to the level.

Rain gauge description:

Our tipping bucket rainfall gauge is composed of an integrated shell, filter, funnel, reverse flow dumper, terminal block, leg bracket, reed switch, control box, rain gauge base, etc. Among them, a tipping bucket shaft, around the horizontal bubble, a dry reed switch bracket, and a signal output terminal are installed on the rain gauge base. Unlike other tipping bucket rain gauges, the tipping bucket sleeve of our rain gauge is an integrated positioning structure, and the tipping bucket is installed in the shaft bearing through the tipping bucket shaft. The internal structure of our rain gauge has been assembled before leaving the factory, and there is no need for on-site installation of the internal structure, which brings convenience to on-site installation. In addition, we also have stainless steel tipping bucket rain gauge.

The tipping bucket of our rain gauge is a three-dimensional streamlined design and is designed with a drooping curved diversion tip. Its appearance is beautiful and smooth, the water tipping performance is better, and it is easy to clean and maintain.

The tipping bucket of our rain gauge is equipped with constant magnetic steel, and the reed switch bracket is equipped with a reed switch. When the equipment leaves the factory, the magnetic steel, and the reed switch have been adjusted at a suitable coupling distance so that the output signal of the instrument and the number of flipping buckets can be determined.

ABS rain gauge application

Our ABS tipping bucket rain gauge can measure precipitation, precipitation intensity, precipitation time, and other parameters for relevant departments such as meteorological stations, hydrological stations, agriculture and forestry, national defense, and field observation stations. It can provide original data for flood control, water supply dispatching, and water regime management of power stations and reservoirs.

Our ABS tipping bucket rain gauge can be combined with wind speed sensor, wind direction sensor, illuminance sensor, solar radiation sensor, uv sensor, solar radiation shield, soil sensor, rain and snow sensor, etc. to form a complete outdoor weather station system.

ABS rain gauge installation

When installing the outdoor ground and roof, first make the cement installation foundation according to the requirements, and the plane of the cement foundation should be horizontal. The size of the cement installation foundation is generally a 40cm×40cm square base with a height of not less than 30cm or a circular base with a diameter of 40cm. It is required that the height of the rain-bearing mouth of the instrument is 70cm from the ground level, and no shelters higher than the rain-bearing mouth of the instrument are allowed within 3 to 5 meters around the mouth of the instrument.

Install a fixed rain gauge to adjust the level of the rain opening

Drill 3 mounting holes with a diameter of 10 cm and a depth of 8-10cm on the cement foundation, place the expansion bolts in the mounting holes, and lock them with lock nuts, and then install the instrument base on the 3 height-adjusting support nuts, and adjust the support nuts Use a level to measure whether the ring mouth is in a horizontal state, and finally use the upper lock to fix the instrument.
