Global Water’s RG600 Tipping Bucket is a durableweather instrument for monitoring rain rate and total rainfall. Withminimal care, the tipping bucket will provide many years of services. AllGlobal Water tipping buckets were designed by the National Weather Service toprovide a low-investment, reliable, industrial, tipping bucket rain gauge. Its simple design assures trouble-free operation, yet provides accurate rainfallmeasurements. The tipping bucket has an 8 inch (20.3 cm); orifice and isshipped complete with mounting brackets and 25 ft (7.6 m) of two-conductorcable. The tipping bucket sensor mechanism activates a sealed reed switchthat produces a contact closure for each 0.01″ or 0.2 mm of rainfall. The tipping bucket rain gauge can be pole mounted or bolted to a level plate.
