All Weather Precipitation Gauge AEPG 600/1000

The most accurate weighting rain gauge on the market today.

The  AEPG Rain Gauge collects percipitation through a standard 8 inch NWS orifice (50 in²) or 16 cm diameter (200 cm² ) collection orifice. Combining mechanical design with no moving parts and the latest in electronic sensor technology, the AEPG series of sensors makes it possible to measure precipitation in all wather conditions without human intervention and costly maintenance.

The All Environment Precipitation Gauge collects precipitation though a standard 8 inch (203.2mm) NWS orifice. Precipitation falls into a bucket which is supported by three precision sensors that weigh the precipitation amount independently and transmits the weight data to a central processing unit that compares each set of data and calculates the amount of precipitation. It converts this measurement into RS-232 format output for digital transmission to a recording device of customers selection. Also pulses can be transmitted as contact closures of a reed relay device.
