The system is a permanent, mounted gauge with a generous 200 cm2 collecting area, and delivers a pulse output per 0.2mm increments of rain. What makes this unit unique is its self-emptying tilting-cup which allows for high accuracy and precision measurement collection. As well as this, its body is made from Styrosun®, which is able to withstand harsh temperatures as low as -50˚ C up to 60˚ C.
For accurate data collection and control, the rainAhead® unit connects seamlessly with MJK’s Connect®, Mµ Connect® or Chatter® units.
The Connect® and Mµ Connect® units provide a built-in function to control the pump-down sequence depending on rain intensity, while the Chatter® includes a battery operated data logger with GSM/GPRS modem, for transfer of data to SCADA facility for further analysis.
With a collection capacity of 2.4mm of rain per minute, the rainAhead® system coupled with MJK’s data collection units is one of the most effective and accurate measuring tools on the market.
