PG2R is the highest-performance heated 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, usable without mains power supply also at low temperatures, it indicates any malfunctions before they cause interruption of measurement.
PG2R does not require any mains power, only with the aid of battery and solar panel it can measure the water equivalent of solid precipitations down to very low temperatures.
PG2R measures liquid precipitation and water equivalent of solid precipitation with a resolution of 0.1 mm. The maximum error of the PG2R 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, PG2R 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.
PG2R contains diagnostics to verify the:
clogging of the funnel
correct functioning of the heaters;
correct inclination of the sensor;
correct functioning of the sensing elements;
status of the moving parts, to warn in advance of potential breakdowns.
