The Davis rain gauge smart sensors features the new AeroCone design, for better measurement accuracy in high-wind conditions. This gauge is made from UV-stabilized ABS plastic to provide a cost-effective sensor for rainfall measurement, and is plug-and-play compatible with all HOBO weather stations.
This is a plug-and-play smart sensor, who is compatible with RX, H21, H22, and U30 loggers (stations) and is also available in a wireless model for use with the HOBOnet field monitoring system. It has a streamlined design, which reduces the amount of missed rain capture in windy conditions resulting in more accurate rainfall data. There are improved debris screen locks in place to ensure it remains in place during high winds. The 16,5 cm collector opening meets World Meteorological Organization (WMO) guidelines.
