- Model (RG-T) - Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge


The rugged, all metal RG-T Rain Gauge is FTS's take on a simple, proven, mature technology. It has earned tremendous loyalty over several years for its extreme accuracy, excellent calibration retention and super simple deployment that ensures success-customers especially appreciate the fact that unlike many tipping buckets available, it doesn't rust.

  • Screens in the funnel and over the base plate water outlets seal the tipping mechanism completely from insects and wind-borne material.
  • Built-in bubble levels and full 2-axis leveling mechanism, make it quick and east to mount the tipping bucket perfectly level on any surface (even a vertical pole).
  • Employs a tool-less design that utilizes 'bicycle-style' quick-release clamps.

  • Metal construction provides rugged durability. 
  • Cable sheathed in braided stainless steel, to protect it form animal damage. 
  • Cable terminates in a waterproof, military-style bayonet connector for use with Axiom dataloggers (optionally available without military connector for use with other dataloggers).

  • The tipping mechanism is injeciton moulded engineered in resin, resulting in extreme accuracy on every unit.
  • Inner surface of tipper is super-smooth with no corners so it shed watter better than metal tippers and doesn't allow dust or small debris to collect. 
  • Jeweled (ruby) bearings mean no friction, no resistance to tipping resulting in high sensitivity to accuracy capture even very small rain events. 
  • The jeweled bearings also prevent the mechanism from wearing out over time, resulting in long-term calibration retention. 
  • The base and support ports are precision cast as a single structure, providing maximum vibration resistance. False measurements from wind are eliminated, ensuring long-term repeatable accuracy. 
  • Stainless steel quick-release clamps eliminate retaining screws that can rust and adversely affect accuracy.
