The Rainlogger is designed for use with most standard tipping-bucket rain gauges with a reed switch output. It records each tip time from the tipping-bucket, and outputs the amount of rainfall per programmed time period (based on rainfall calibration constant).
Solinst recommends using the most recent Rainlogger firmware version with the latest Levelogger Software version. See Section 1.3.1.
If using a firmware version prior to version 2.000, the Rainlogger will function differently (See previous Levelogger User Guide)
