The Model 3002 Rainlogger 5 simply connects to, and records and stores the tips of a tipping-bucket rain gauge. The rain event time stamp and total rainfall per time period are stored in non-volatile memory. Up to 100,000 readings can be saved.
The durable ABS housing is compact, 22 mm x 160 mm (7/8" x 6.3"), and provides ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection. The lithium battery lasts up to 10 years. The Rainlogger 5 is deployed in the field using a 3-pin connection cable to the tipping bucket rain gauge. The Rainlogger 5 is also compatible with all Levelogger communication and deployment accessories.
The Rainlogger 5 is programmed, and data downloaded, using Levelogger Software. This allows rainfall data to be integrated into projects using Levelogger data, which is ideal for correlating precipitation events with changes in groundwater and surface water levels, or conductivity. The Rainlogger 5 is excellent for measuring local precipitation and peak rainfall events, for stormwater management, and watershed, drainage basin, agricultural and forestry studies.
