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 firmware, Version 2.000, when using a Rainlogger with Software Version 4.3.2.

If using a firmware version prior to version 2.000, the Rainlogger will function differently (See previous Levelogger User Guide)
