HOBO Pendant Event Data Logger

$130.00 USD
Measures rainfall to determine rainfall rates, times, and duration; for deployment with most standard tipping-bucket rain gauges.

Important Information

Requires HOBOware software and either an Optic USB Base Station or a HOBO Waterproof Shuttle (U-DTW-1). HOBOware Pro is required when using the HOBO Waterproof Shuttle. See compatible items below.

Measures rainfall to determine rainfall rates, times, and duration; for 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, which is only stored at the time of event, for better memory usage. For accurate temperature measurement in sunlight, a solar radiation shield is required (assembly-required RS1 Solar Radiation Shield or pre-assembled M-RSA Solar Radiation Shield).

Optical interface for transfer
Mounting externally to measure rainfall and temperature.


  • Ideal for recording rainfall with tipping-bucket rain gauges
  • Records tips or momentary contact closures and temperature
  • Event-based data storage provides detailed data and efficient memory usage
  • Stores over 16,000 tips (160 in. of rainfall with a 0.01 in. rain gauge)
  • Includes scaling to inches, millimeters or other units

For a self-contained rainfall logger, see the HOBO RG3, a tipping-bucket rain gauge with integrated logger.


External Event Input
Event sensor: Two-wire interface suitable for measuring mechanical and electrical contact closures
Maximum input frequency: 1 Hz (1 pulse per second)
Lockout time: 500 ms
Minimum pulse width: 1 ms (hardware debounce)
Input/output impedance: 100 kΩ
Edge detection: Falling edge, contact closure, or Schmitt-trigger buffer
Preferred switch type: Normally open. For maximum battery life, the event input should be used with its preferred switch type. The logger will work with normally closed switches, but battery life will be compromised.
Open circuit input voltage: Battery voltage; nominally 3.0 V
Maximum input voltage: Battery voltage + 0.3 V
User connection: 24 AWG, 2 leads: white (+), black (-)

Plot A

Temperature Measurement
Measurement range: -20° to 70°C (-4° to 158°F)
Accuracy: ± 0.53°C from 0° to 50°C (± 0.95°F from 32° to 122°F), see Plot A. A solar radiation shield is required for accurate temperature measurements in sunlight.
Resolution: 0.14°C at 25°C (0.25°F at 77°F), see Plot A
Drift: Less than 0.1°C/year (0.2°F/year)
Response time: Airflow of 2 m/s (4.4 mph): 10 minutes, typical to 90%


Plot B


Time accuracy: ± 1 minute per month at 25°C (77°F), see Plot B
Operating range: -20° to 70°C (-4° to 158°F)
Environmental rating: NEMA 6 and IP67; suitable for deployment outdoors; not rated for use in direct sun
Drop specification: 1.5 m (5 ft) onto concrete
NIST traceable certification: Available for temperature only at additional charge; temperature range -20° to 70°C (-4° to 158°F)
Battery: CR-2032 3V lithium battery; 1 year typical use; deployments in extremely cold or hot temperatures, or logging intervals faster than one minute, may significantly reduce battery life
Memory: 64K bytes
Materials: Polypropylene case; stainless steel screws; Buna-N O-ring; PVC cable insulation
Weight: 50 g (1.7 oz.)
Dimensions: 71 x 33 x 23 mm (2.8 x 1.3 x 0.9 inches); 1.8 m (6 ft) cable
