  • traffic meteorology

The successful precipitation sensor

now available with serial interface. The resistent and beautifully designed sensor has an additional linearised pulse output for high accuracy and easy connection to external data loggers. This new sensor provides intensity adjusted measurement of precipitation with serial measurand output via RS485.

  • SDI-12 protocol (at RS485) for universal use
  • interface RS 485
  • LBP protocol (Lambrecht Bus Protocol)
  • integrated intensity adjustment
  • calculation of the precipitation sum since last data call
  • calculation of the precipitation intensity for a gliding minute
  • calculation of the precipitation intensity for a gliding hour (minute interval)

PreLOG · Data loggerPreLOG Data logger

for most precipitation sensors with tipping bucket and reed switch output. In addition, the PreLOG can be used as an independent pulse counter. 

The rechargeable battery of the PreLOG allows a reliable operation of up to 5 years. The logger is configured, read out and charged via the mini-USB interface.

The communication of PreLOG via GPRS can be carried out with a modem, via which it also sends alarm messages in the event of an alarm.

PreLOG ECO is the cost-effective version for manual readout of data.  

  • waterproof and low-maintenance
  • user-friendly software
  • sampling mode: event-based recording (no zero values)
  • maximum of readings: 65535
  • integrated intensity correction for Lambrecht precipitation sensors type 15189 (can be deactivated)
