HyQuest Solutions’ Field Calibration Device FCD checks rain gauges in the ﬁeld for accuracy. The portable lightweight device effectively enables ﬁeld technicians to run functional tests and veriﬁcations of any rain gauge in the ﬁeld. The use of FCD saves time and money, because the tipping bucket rain gauges can remain ﬁxed in their location without the need for dismantling and transport and with very short downtimes for calibration only.
FCD checks whether a rain gauge is providing accurate readings: It discharges a certain volume of water into the rain gauge collector. Then, the number of tips has to be counted and checked with the calibration speciﬁcations (included). The tips generated when emptying the FCD water volume can be counted
- manually by listening for the tips,
- by a data logger, and
- most accurate and comfortable: by means of connecting the CMCbt BlueTooth converter (optional) and using the FCD-App (free download) on an Android mobile device
Please note: Data loggers, FCD-App and further useful accessories are available from HyQuest Solutions.
