Description

The Data Logging Rain Gauge is a battery-powered rainfall data collection and recording system which includes a HOBO® Pendant Event data logger integrated into a tipping-bucket rain gauge. This model automatically records up to 3200 mm of rainfall data that can be used to determine rainfall rates, times and duration. Also records temperature when used with an optional solar radiation shield (RS1 Solar Radiation Shield, or M-RSA). A base station or shuttle is required.

Features:

  • A high quality tipping-bucket rain gauge includes a HOBO Pendant Event data logger. Base station or shuttle is required.
  • Time and date stamp is stored for each tip - provides detail needed to determine rainfall rates and duration
  • Reliable, field-proven rain gauge
  • Externally Mounted pendant event loggerAlso records temperature when used with an optional rain shield

Environment

The RG3-M Data Logger is for use in Outdoor environments

Measurements

The RG3-M Data Logger supports the following measurements :

HOBO Data Logging Rain Gauge RG3 M

This logger collects time-stamped rainfall measurements as well as accurate temperature readings. The Data Logging Rain Gauge comes with a tipping bucket and can collect up to 30,000 measurements. Versions for both metric and English measurements are available.

HOBOware Software

HOBOware software is used for launching, reading out, and plotting data from HOBO® data loggers. With HOBOware, you can also check logger status, filter and export data, save changes to graphs in project files, and scale data with the Linear Scaling and Pulse Scaling data assistants. There are two versions of HOBOware: HOBOware and HOBOware Pro.


HOBOware Standard features

  • Simple menus for fast, easy logger setup and readout
  • Point & click for fast setup and readout
  • Scaling to real-world engineering units
  • Presentation-quality graphs
  • Easy export of data files to text or Excel format
