Description
 

The Davis Model 7852M Metric Rain Collector is a tipping bucket rain gauge designed to meet the guidelines of the World Meteorological Organization. With these weather instruments for sale, rain enters the collector cone, passes through a debris-filtering screen, and collects in one chamber of the tipping bucket. The bucket tips when it has collected an amount of water equal to the increment in which the collector measures (0.2 mm). As the bucket tips, it causes a switch closure and brings the second tipping bucket chamber into position. The rain water drains out through the screened drains in the base of the collector.

The body and base of the Davis rain gauge are constructed of tough, UV resistant plastic. The tipping bucket pivots on bearings that minimize friction and wear. Stainless steel adjustment screws under each chamber of the tipping bucket allow you to fine-tune the calibration. Mounting holes are predrilled in the base of these weather instruments for sale and a built-in leveling trough aids in installation. Bird Spike Kit included.
