Integrated measurement for precipitation amount

Tipping bucket (inline) - Integrated measurement for precipitation amount

Key benefits

  • Allows inline measurement of precipitation amount
  • Contact material is chemical neutral
  • Easy to clean


The precipitation collectors NSA 181/NSA 181K and UNS 130 can optionally be equipped with a tipping bucket system. For Eigenbrodt precipitation monitors NMO 191 the tipping bucket is standard.
This functionality provides digital pulses of the precipitation amount being collected through the collection funnel. In combination with the Eigenbrodt signal PCB Memory (optional), now it is possible to log rainfall amount and also the intensity.
Note for UNS 130/NSA 181/NSA 181K: In order to fit the tipping bucket into the housing, the cylindrical will be extended as shown in the picture right hand side.
