Considered the gold standard since 1957.
It is a remote tipping bucket style rain gauge that measures the amount of liquid precipitation with a unique
siphoning technique that allows for a wide range of accuracy.
The Rain Gauge is a freestanding receptacle for measuring precipitation. It contains an open top, which allows rainfall to fall into the upper portion, which is called the collector. Collected water is funneled to a mechanical device (tipping bucket). The precipitation is then siphoned into a tipping mechanism which regulates the flow.
The tipping mechanism then incrementally measures the rainfall accumulation and causes a momentary closure of a switch. As water is collected, the tipping bucket fills to the point where it tips over. This action empties the bucket in preparation for additional measurement. Water discharged by the tipping bucket passes out of the rain gauge with no need for emptying.
