The Rainlogger Edge is an inexpensive datalogger designed torecord the tips of a standard tipping-bucket rain gauge with a reed switch output. This compact and durable field unit offers long-term reliability and convenience with a battery that lasts up to 10 years, and improved ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection with an ABS housing.
The event time stamp and total rainfall per time period is logged in non-volatile memory, which holds up to 60,000 readings. Sampling is event based, as the Rainlogger Edge records and saves each tip of the tipping-bucket as it happens.
The Rainlogger Edge is simply programmed with the userfriendlyLevelogger Software. An Optical Reader connects the Rainlogger Edge to a laptop or desktop PC and the Levelogger Software automatically detects the attached Rainlogger. The Rainlogger Edge is easily deployed in the field, using a 3-pin connector cable attached to the rain gauge.
