Cat. No. I-RC
This self-emptying, tipping bucket style rain collector
utilizes an 8" diameter openning to meet NWS specifications for
statistical accuracy. Rainfall is gathered in the collecting bucket and
funnels through a small openning into a tipping mechanism. When the
mechanism has 1/100th of an inch of water in it, it tips. A count
is then transmitted to an indicator and the water emptys from the
tipping mechanism, through the bottom of the collector bucket to the
The rainfall collector weather instrument requires no manual emptying.
Each tip of the bucket is equivalent to 1/100th of an inch of rain. It
utilizes a normally open circuit that is momentarily closed each time
it tips. As such, it can be connected to any simple counting
circuit, including Maximum's Rainwatch indicator.
- Outside rainfall collector meets NWS specifications for size and accuracy,
and is self-emptying for your convenience.
- The collector bucket can remain outdoors year-round. Freezing weather will
not damage the collector, but readings of snow or freezing rain are not to be
considered accurate readings of rainfall.
