Model AEPG 600/1000 - Weather Precipitation Gauge

From

0

The AEPG Rain Gauge collects precipitation though a standard 8 inch (203.2mm) NWS orifice. Combining mechanical design with no moving parts, and the latest in electronic sensor technology, the AEPG series of sensors makes it possible to measure precipitation in all weather conditions without human intervention and costly maintenance. The All Environment Precipitation Gauge collects precipitation though a standard 8 inch (203.2mm) NWS orifice. Precipitation falls into a bucket which is supported by three precision sensors that weigh the precipitation amount independently and transmits the weight data to a central processing unit that compares each set of data and calculates the amount of precipitation. It converts this measurement into RS-232 format output for digital transmission to a recording device of customers selection. These pulses are transmitted as binary digital signals or as contact closures of a reed relay device.

Belfort’s years of experience in precipitation measurement is behind the development of this highly accurate state of the art all weather precipitation gauge. By combining proven mechanical design with no moving parts with the latest in electronic sensor technology, the AEPG series of sensors makes it possible to measure all types of precipitation in all weather conditions without human intervention and costly maintenance. By using the latest available technology and manufacturing techniques Belfort is able to offer this latest precipitation product at a fraction of the cost of older mechanical designs.All Environmental Operation
