Tipping Rain Gauge
This tipping rain gauge is the same sensor found in our Weather Meters set and can be used as a replacement part or as a stand-alone unit. This high quality weather proof sensor measures rainfall using a self emptying tipping bucket.
This tipping rain gauge is the same sensor found in our Weather Meters set and can be used as a replacement part or as a stand-alone unit. These high quality weather proof sensors measure rainfall using a self emptying tipping bucket. Each 0.011″ / 0.2794mm of rain causes one momentary contact closure that can be recorded with a digital counter or microcontroller interrupt input.
The rain gauge has a long cable (9′ / 3 meter) terminated with a 6P2C RJ11 connector. The cable can be connected directly to a RJ11 Breakout Board and hooked up on its own or to our Raspberry Pi Weather HATs or Raspberry Pi Pico Weather Board.
Dimensions are 4.75″ x 2.38″ x 3″, excluding the mounting tabs. The mounting tabs extend 0.6″ and have 0.168″ diameter holes on 5.35″ centers. We recommend mounting this gauge to a stable base, such as a roof or the top of a fence. If the gauge is free to sway in the wind on a tall mast, its movement may cause false readings. Adding wire mesh to the drain holes on the bottom can help keep out spiders and insects that may interfere with the operation of the mechanism.
