Rain Collector
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 outside.

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. 
  • Ships complete with 60', 22 AWG, 2-wire, UV protected cable.
