rain gauges & pluviometers

measure rainfall remotely with optional alarms



overview

High accuracy, tipping bucket rain gauges for the measurement of rainfall. Connect to our range of data loggers or connect to your existing data logger.

Two models are available: ECRN-100 and ECRN-50.

The ECRN-100 is a standard rain gauge for measuring rainfall. The ECRN-100 is ideally integrated into a weather station for meteorological measurements. It is ideal for growers, students and researchers that have standard weather monitoring requirements.

The ECRN-50 is a small, low cost, low resolution tipping bucket. It is ideally used for drainage, canopy through fall, or other hydrology applications.

 

features
  • Self-emptying, tipping bucket design is exceptionally accurate, freeze-resistant and reliable
