Rainfall Data Loggers & Sensors
Onset offers a range of products for measuring rainfall, from award-winning weather stations to low-cost Davis Instruments sensors that offer the same ease-of-use as all of our “plug-and-play” Smart sensors.
- Designed to meet World Meteorological Organization (WMO) guidelines
The HOBOnet Wireless AeroCone® Rain Gauge records rainfall in 0.01-inch increments. HOBOnet Wireless Sensors communicate data directly to the HOBO RX3000 or the HOBO MicroRX station, or pass data through other wireless sensors back to the central station. They are preconfigured and ready to deploy, and data is accessed through HOBOlink, Onset’s innovative cloud-based software platform.
The HOBOnet Wireless AeroCone® Rain Gauge records rainfall in 0.2-millimeter increments. HOBOnet Wireless Sensors communicate data directly to the HOBO RX3000 or the HOBO MicroRX station or pass data through other wireless sensors back to the central station. They are preconfigured and ready to deploy, and data is accessed through HOBOlink, Onset’s innovative cloud-based software platform.
The HOBO RX3000 Weather Station Starter Kit provides instant access to site-specific air temperature, relative humidity, and wind speed/direction data anywhere, anytime on your desktop or mobile device.
The RX3000 accepts up to 10 plug-and-play Smart Sensors. Just plug in your sensor and it’s automatically recognized – no programming, wiring, or calibration necessary.
This weather station kit includes a one-year cellular data plan plus cloud-based data access through HOBOlink – for 24/7 access to your data and the ability to verify RX3000 system status, set up and manage alarm notifications, and schedule automated delivery of data.
Davis® Rain Gauge Smart Sensors are compatible with all HOBO weather station loggers, HOBOware, and HOBOlink. They offer the same ease-of-use as existing Onset Smart Sensors, providing cost-effective HOBO weather stations for projects on a tight budget. The sensors feature a plug-in modular connector for easy installation, and all configuration parameters are stored in the sensor and automatically communicated to the logger, eliminating the need for programming or extensive setup.
The Davis® Rain Gauge Smart Sensors features the new AeroCone® design, for better measurement accuracy in high-wind conditions. This gauge is made from UV-stabilized ABS plastic to provide a cost-effective sensor for rainfall measurement, and is plug-and-play compatible with all HOBO weather stations.
Rugged and compact, the redesigned HOBO USB Micro Station is a weatherproof data logger for multi-channel monitoring of microclimates. Starting at just $220, this battery-powered station accepts up to five plug-and-play Smart Sensors and has a hinged door to make sensor installation simple and quick. The Micro Station is equipped with a built-in USB port for fast, efficient data readout to a computer, and integrated mounting tabs for easy installation.
Looking for a cellular option? The MicroRX Station offers integrated solar panel or battery-power for affordable remote data offload via 4G cellular.
Interested in water level and flow monitoring? The MicroRX Water Level Station combines the MicroRX Station with Onset’s own water level sensor and pre-programmed water flow formulas.
Accurately measure rainfall with the HOBO Pendant Event Data Logger. Determine rainfall rates, times, and duration after deployment with most standard tipping-bucket rain gauges. Efficiently gather and store momentary contact events and temperature data. Additionally, gain access to detailed event data. Event data is only stored when it happens for better memory usage. Use a solar radiation shield for accurate temperature measurement in sunlight applications. See RS1 Solar Radiation Shield (assembly required) and M-RSA (pre-assembled) Solar Radiation Shield.
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.
