The Zepiro® D2O® (Direct-To-Orbit) RG1 is a satellite telemetry solution for digital, pulse type, tipping bucket rain gauges. It is ideally suited to use in remote or difficult to access areas and can transmit from virtually any surface location globally within satellite service areas.
It is a low-powered device designed for endurance, maintenance-free monitoring applications with the included battery capable of providing power for up to three years.
The D2O RG1 records hourly rainfall totals and data messages are created and queued for satellite transmission periodically throughout the day, each containing up to 7 hourly measurements. Messages are sent via a low-earth orbit satellite network back to a terrestrial ground station. From there Zepiro’s servers securely recompile the data packets to readable formats and forwards the data to the end user for analysis.
