The Model RAINMETs a modern design, very advanced technology remote rain and weather station, that definitively offers an efficient and low cost solution for the establishment of nation wide or regional rain measurement networks. RAINMETconsists basically on a precise tipping bucket rain gauge, connected to our DataLogger/transmitter Model METEODATAwich is mounted on a weatherproof enclosure with IP66 or IP67 protection.
The enclosure also contains an internal battery and a power recharging circuit for connection to a little external solar panel that ensures a total autonomy of the complete remote station.
The option “110-220” also allows to recharge the internal battery connecting the unit to the mains 110- 240 VAC if available on site.
The Data logger METEODATAcounts on a very high capacity 32 MB internal memory for data storage, and also an optional built-in integrated GSM/GPRS/ CDMA cellular modem that allows data transmission and bidirectional communications with a Central Receiving Station.
For early warning information of very high rain intesity events, the Data Rain Station also generates and transmits ALERT messages to Civil Protection Authorities via SMS to a certain number of mobil telephones.
This feature is specially useful in monsoon and other high precipitation areas, suffering important natural disasters due to these heavy rains and subsequent floods.
The RAINMETlso accepts the connection of additional meteorological sensors, for the measurement of other parameters, such as Ambient Temperature, Relative Humidity, Atmospheric Pressure and even Solar Radiation, in order to obtain a more complete weather picture of the environmental conditions of a certain site. These optional sensors can be easily connected to the Data Rain-2000C station at any time.
The Data logger can be ordered mounted in a metallic enclosure, IP66 protection (Model RAINMETCM); or in a Polypropylene enclosure with IP67 protection (Model RAINMETCP).
