Rain-O-Matic Professional rain gauge

Download brochure


The RAIN-O-MATIC Professional is a self-emptying tipping bucket gauge and one of the most accurate and reliable rain
gauges on the market. It gives you advantages in:

More accurate measurements (only one adjustment screw which makes it easy to recalibrate).
Bucket made in POM, which is a more dismissive material and therefore makes dust and dirt not stick so easily on the
spoon and maximize water release.

Calibration

All Professional rain gauges are manually calibrated. It gives you the guarantee for a very accurate measurement.

Minimal maintenance
These professional rain gauges require minimal maintenance due to:

Outer shell is made from STYROSUN which makes the surface easy to clean.
High quality plastic materials and a simple design for a very long durability (10-20 years)
Rain gauge/Tipping Spoon

Rain-O-Matic Professional measures the precipitation by means of a funnel (orifice 200 cm2), which
leads the water down into the self-emptying tipping POM bucket, held in place by a hard ferrite
magnet. The magnet always exerts just enough tension to allow the measuring bucket to empty in
one quick movement (less than 300 ms) and then return to its normal position, ready to once again
collect precipitation. This means the counter weight always remains the same opposite to other
conventional two spoons tipping bucket rain gauges.

Technical details

The electronic printed circuit board with individually tested and high quality reed switches is protected
against extreme weather conditions such as extreme frost or heat. This include corrosion from salt
water due to the PCB is coated with weather-resistant varnish.

Calibration
The Rain-O-Matic Small comes standardly as machine calibrated with 1 mm resolution.
Minimal maintenance
Our Rain-O-Matic Small rain gauges require minimal maintenance due to:
Outer shell is made from STYROSUN which makes the surface easy to clean.
High quality plastic materials and a simple design for a very long durability (10-20 years)
Rain gauge/Tipping Spoon
Rain-O-Matic Small measures the precipitation by means of a funnel (orifice 50 cm2), which leads the water down
into the self-emptying tipping POM spoon, held in place by a hard ferrite magnet. The magnet always exerts just
enough tension to allow the measuring spoon to empty in one quick movement (less than 300 ms) and then return
to its normal position, ready to once again collect precipitation. This means the counter weight always remains the
same opposite to other conventional two spoons tipping bucket rain gauges.

Calibration
Calibration is a very important issue for Pronamic and therefore all Meteorological rain gauges are manually calibrated. It gives
you the guarantee for a very accurate measurement (max. +/- 5 % deviation).

Minimal maintenance
Our Meteorological rain gauges require minimal maintenance due to:

Outer shell is made from STYROSUN which makes the surface easy to clean.
High quality plastic materials and a simple design for a very long durability (10-20 years)
Rain-O-Matic tipping mechanism
Peak Environmental Monitoring is an authorised Australian distributor of the world renown range of Pronamic rain gauges
and irrigation meters. We are able to interface these gauges to a wide range of data loggers and can supply either the rain
gauge or rain gauge and logging device.
