6'' Collector Rain Gauge

The Texas Electronics, Inc. TR-525I Rainfall Sensor with 6" diameter funnel is a remote tipping bucket style rain gauge that measures liquid precipitation. The Rain Gauge is a freestanding receptacle for measuring precipitation. Through an opening at the top of the device, rain is collected and then funneled to a mechanical device, called a tipping bucket. As water is collected, the tipping bucket fills to the point that it tips over, causing a momentary closure of a switch to incrementally measure rainfall accumulation. This action empties the bucket in preparation for additional measurement. Water discharged by the tipping bucket passes out of the rain gauge with no need for emptying. The TR-525I is a rugged and reliable rain gauge that delivers high accuracy at a low cost.

Stock is single reed switch but if you like we will install a dual reed switch

Should be used where snow or freezing weather may occur. It consists of two low-power heating elements that prevent disruption in readings during freezing times. The heaters are thermostatically controlled with an additional thermal overload

This allows an extended range of accuracy. This system allows control of the “flow rate” of accumulated precipitation. This metering geometry assures higher levels in both accuracy and repeatability during periods of extremely heavy rainfall.

All our 525 rain gauges are factory calibrated. Option 1. if you would like the printed certificate included. OR Option 2. If you would like to prepay for 3 separate factory calibrations when you send in your gauge for recalibration we offer it at a discount
