Adcon's Professional Series of Rain Gauges

Given the importance of rain for agriculture, meteorology, flood prevention, etc., measuring it accurately, reliably and yet economically was our target when developing this new series of professional Rain Gauges.

Now WMO compliant precipitation monitoring has just become very affordable. With this new, German-made Rain Gauge Adcon introduces a superb product for all kinds of applications: from hydrology to meteorology, from agriculture to industrial monitoring - this device is fit for nearly everything.

Modell "Adcon Professional"

Just from the looks of it this rain gauge is a very convincing product. The body? Anodized aluminum. The base? Cast aluminum. The spoon? Well balanced stainless steel.

Made in Germany by a top-notch expert in meteo-grade sensors this rain gauge does what the professional needs: measure rain very accurately with a well-balanced double tipping-bucket action. This product needs hardly any maintenance or calibration, an occasional cleaning apart.

A stainless spring mounted on the base of the funnel prevents bird droppings from clogging the inlet. Two large openings in the base make sure water runs off smoothly. The orifice of 200cm² is topped by a sharp edged ring to deter birds from landing on it.

Long term accuracy and stability require hardly any calibration. Based on a measuring method invented by Joss-Tonigni this gauge provides unrivaled long term accuracy and stability, and requires hardly any calibration. A sealed reed switch, capable of indefinite operation, and its solid mechanics ensure that this instrument has an extremely long working life with little need for maintenance and adjustment.

The Rain Gauge is meant to be mounted on a pole in order to meet WMO requirements. Three screws and an integrated bubble level assist in proper positioning of the device.

For all-year operation heated versions are also available
