Rain, rain go away!

24 November 2022


It’s been hard to keep track of all the rain the east coast of Australia has had recently, but we’ve found a way for you! The Solinst Rainlogger 5 is an inexpensive datalogger designed to record the tips of a standard tipping-bucket rain gauge. This compact and durable field unit offers long-term reliability and convenience with a battery that lasts up to 10 years and can be easily added to your existing monitoring network.

The event time stamp and total rainfall per time period is logged in a non-volatile memory, which holds up to 100,000 readings. Sampling is event based, as the Rainlogger 5 records each tip of the tipping-bucket as it happens.

The Solinst Rainlogger 5 has multiple communication options including the Levelogger 5 App Interface which uses Bluetooth to wirelessly connect your Rainlogger 5 to your smart device. The Rainlogger 5 is also compatible with the LevelSender 5 for a telemetered option.
