RG1 Rain Gauge, 400cm², 0.1mm

unheated Version


The Adcon RG1 was designed as a universal rain gauge, that meets the need of most applications. This gauge is built to last, in agriculture as well as in hydrographical or meteorological applications and in rough environments.

This version of the RG1 weighs in at approx. 750gr. and is suited for both mast and floor mounting. With its large orifice of 400cm² and its high resolution of 0.1mm it is dieally suited for areas with light to moderate rainfall intensity. The measurement is done by a double tipping bucket system that's factory calibrated to remain within a <2% accuracy in rain falls up to 30mm per hour. The steep angle of the buckets makes water run of quickly and thus prevents the build-up of residue, like sand or dust in the buckets.An aluminum filter that can easily be removed for cleaning keeps leaves and bird droppings from clogging the funnel. The funnel attaches to the body with a bayonet-style lock, which prevents the funnel from being shaken off in heavy winds.The rain gauges exterior is fully made of aluminum that's anodized for extra protection and durability.The sensor comes complete with all mast mounting equipment, two pipe clamps, and a shielded 1m cable with a 7-pin Binder jack, compatible to all RTU's of the A723, A733 and A75x families.
