The HD2013 Rain Gauge is a reliable and sturdy bucket rain gauge, built entirely from corrosion resistant
materials in order to guarantee its durability.
So as to ensure accurate measurement even with low temperature climatic conditions or during and after
precipitations of snow, a version with a heater which is automatically activated around +4 degC has been
developed so that snow deposits and ice formations are prevented.
The rain gauge is formed by a metal base on which a tipping bucket is set.
The rain collector cone, fixed to the aluminum cylinder, channels the water inside the tipping bucket: once the predefined level is reached, the calibrated bucked rotates under the action of its own weight, discharging the water.
During the rotation phase, the usually closed reed contact opens for a fraction of a second, sending an impulse to the counter. The quantity of rainfall measured is based on the count of the number of limes the bucket is emptied: the reed contacts, usually dosed, open at the moment of the rotation between one bucket's section and the other.
The number of impulses can be detected and recorded by a datalogger such as the HD2013-D or by a pulse counter. A removable filter for periodic cleaning and maintenance is inserted in the water collector cone so as to prevent leaves or other elements blocking the end of the hole, For better water flow, the collector cone is treated with a teflon® paint.
The HD2013R, the version with a heater, operates using either 12Vdc or 24Vdc voltage and uses about 35W. Heating is activated around +4"C. When submitting your order, upon request a bird dissuader. made of 8 3mm-diameler spikes, GO mm m height, can be installed on the rain gauge.
