The Model 3510 Tipping Bucket Rain Gage w/Siphon is recognized as the standard for measuring rainfall and precipitation in remote and unattended locations. The unit consists of a collector funnel, a stainless steel filter screen and a tipping bucket mechanism. The bucket tips when precipitation of 0.1 mm, 0.2 mm, 0.5mm, 1.0 mm or 0.01 inch has been collected. Each tip is marked by a reed switch closure and can be recorded by datalogger or DCP for satellite or radio telemetry transmitting.

The Model 3510 Tipping Bucket Rain Gage w/Siphon is designed for general rainfall measurements. The receiver is WMO & NOAA standard 8” (200 mm) in diameter and tipping buckets are available to measure each 0.1 mm, 0.2 mm, 0.5mm, 1.0 mm or 0.01 of precipitation. The gages are supplied with a siphon that allows the rain to flow at a steady rate to the tipping bucket mechanism regardless of rainfall intensity. This provides accurate measurements for a range of 0 - 27” (700 mm) per hour. The siphon can be dismantled for routine servicing, and funnel collector comes with a leaf sieve.
