The Rainlogger Edge is an inexpensive datalogger designed to record the tips of a standard tipping-bucket rain gauge. This compact and durable field unit offers long-term reliability and convenience with a battery that lasts up to 10 years, and improved ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection with an ABS housing.
The event time stamp and total rainfall per time period is logged in non-volatile memory, which holds up to 60,000 readings. Sampling is event based, as the Rainlogger Edge records and saves each tip of the tipping-bucket as it happens.
Levelogger customers can add rainfall data to their water level monitoring networks using the intuitive Levelogger Software. The Rainlogger Edge provides easy incorporation of precipitation data into existing Levelogger data. Rainfall data can allow correlation between precipitation events and changes in groundwater or surface water levels.
The Rainlogger Edge is compatible with all Solinst Levelogger communication and deployment accessories. Logged data can be downloaded direct to a PC, your smart device using the Solinst Levelogger App, or to a DataGrabber data transfer device. This versatile logger has the ability to integrate into a Solinst Telemetry System and has the option to communicate using SDI-12 protocol (see Model 9500, 9100, 9200 and 3001 Levelogger Series Data Sheets.)

The Rainlogger Edge is simply programmed with the user-friendly Levelogger Software. An Optical Reader connects the Rainlogger Edge to a laptop or desktop PC and the Levelogger Software automatically detects the attached Rainlogger.
The Rainlogger Edge is easily deployed in the field, using a 3-pin connector cable attached to the rain gauge.
Data downloading can be ‘All Data’, ‘Append Data’, or ‘Data Dump’ at any time. Data can be displayed in graph or table format and exported to other programs. The Rainlogger has self-test capability, a reliable EEPROM memory and FRAM back-up memory and the ability to upgrade firmware.
- Measuring local precipitation
- Determining peak rainfall events
- Stormwater management
- Remote monitoring of watersheds
- Ideal for correlating precipitation events to:
- Groundwater and surface water data
- Watershed and drainage basin studies
- Agricultural and forestry studies
A smart alternative for programming, data collection, viewing and sharing, is the Levelogger App Interface that uses Bluetooth® wireless technology to connect all Levelogger Series products to your smart device using the Solinst Levelogger App (see Model 3001 Solinst Levelogger App & Interface data sheets).
