200 cm² rain gauge
PG2 is the highest-performance tipping bucket rain gauge with 200 cm2 captation surface on the market today, it is certified in class A according to the criteria of the UNI 11452: 2012 standard. Accurate, it indicates any malfunctions before they cause interruption of measurement and it’s usable without a power supply also at low temperatures thanks to the heated raing gauge version: PG2/R.
PG2 measures liquid precipitation with a resolution of 0.1 mm. The maximum error of the PG2 product class is less than 3% up to 500 mm/h in the entire measurement range.
Unlike that guaranteed by the most popular sensors based on weight technology, PG2 measures with this degree of accuracy from the first minute following the phenomenon detected, thus being particularly suitable for the timely measurement of downpours. Connection: Interface RS-485 with SDI-12 protocol.
PG2 contains diagnostics to verify the:
clogging of the funnel;
correct inclination of the sensor;
correct functioning of the sensing elements;
status of the moving parts, to warn in advance of potential breakdowns.
