The Rainlog data logger is supplied with a polypropylene rain collector, RL-Loader software and serial cable. The tipping bucket rain gauge is calibrated to 0.01 inches / 0.2 mm per tip. This package does not include a mounting post. The 203mm diameter collector meets NWS specifications for statistical accuracy. It is also important that the mounting provides adequate drainage for the collector. The tipping bucket mechanism empties through two drains in its base. The RainLog 2.0 data logger is our next generation Rainfall logger and features numerous improvements over our popular original RainLog. This battery operated logger fits inside many models of tipping bucket rain gauges. Rainfall is logged at a one-minute resolution and has capacity for several years of data.
