Total Precipitation Gauge (TPG)

    • Precision temperature compensated load cell.
    • Low power consumption
    • Featuring 0.001” measurement resolution.
    • Two built-in calibration routines for simple recalibration.
    • High accuracy: 0.02” -25C to +60C
    • Automatically saves data in permanent log
    • User-settable measurement, logging, and averaging (filtering)
    • Built-in flash log for 300,000 readings safeguards your data even if power is lost
    • Stand-alone operation or operation with other loggers/communications via SDI-12 and RS232
    • Front panel allows full access to setup, status and data
    • Provides redundant data storage when connected to a logger

    •Climate change studies
    •Tropical and arctic monitoring
    •Tipping bucket upgrades
    •Replacement of Fischer/Porter gauges
    •CRN — Climate reference network
    •AWS – automatic weather stations
    •ASOS/AWOS – Automated Weather Observing System (airports)
    •NWS Co-op modernization

    • Measurements
    Precipitation, Precip rate, Internal Temp, Battery
    • Automeasure Interval
    1 second to 24 hours
    • Measurement Technique
    Precision hermetically sealed load cell
    • Accuracy
    0.02″ (0.6mm) -25C to +60C
    • Range
    36″ (914 mm) standard, >72″ (1800 mm) with optional drain kit
    • Autodrain Option
    Automataically drain into collection container when precip >75% capacity. System automatically tracks amount drained so that total precip can still be reported.
    • Heater Kit Option
    Heater kit provides rim heater and temperature sensor. The software only operates the heater when there is precipitation and the temperature is within user set limits.
