Anemometer Pack

Rain Gauge Pack

The Rain Gauge Pack combines a `tipping bucket' type rain gauge and a Count Tachometer adaptor capable of measuring the amount of rain fall in 1mm droplets.

When used as part of a data logging experiment students can begin to explore rain fall over time.

Collecting Rain Fall

As rain falls the water runs down through the collecting funnel into a self-emptying spoon which tips and empties each time the equivalent of 1 mm of rain has fallen. Total rainfall is measured by counting how many times the bucket tips.

The Rain gauge is wired to a 10 m lead that terminates in a 3.5 mm jack plug which connects to the Count/Tachometer adaptor.

Weather Stations

The supplied Count/Tachometer adaptor contains 11 calibrated ranges including one to record rain fall. You can further add to your weather station by adding an Anemometer to measure wind speed.


Our latest cross-platform software makes capturing your science experiments a breeze, designed for teacher's and students alike, the new EasySense2 software bring class collaboration to life.
