HyQuest Solutions’ TB6 Series II is a high-quality tipping bucket rain gauge for measuring rainfall in urban and rural locations. The TB6 is the device of choice for accurately measuring low rainfall events and still provides good accuracy measuring heavier rain events.
The tried and proven design of the TB6 Series II ensures long-term, accurate and repeatable results. It is manufactured from high quality, durable materials ensuring long-term stability in the harshest of environments. It consists of a robust powder-coated aluminium enclosure, a UV-resistant ASA polymer base, and stainless steel fasteners and finger filter.
TB6 Series II provides a finger filter that ensures the collector catch area remains unblocked when leaves, bird droppings and other debris find their way into the catch.
The base incorporates two water outlets at the bottom allowing for water collection and data verification.
Maintenance of the TB6 Series II is easy, because removal of the outer enclosure and access to the tipping bucket mechanism and finger filter assembly is made easy with quick release fasteners. The new more spacious enclosure makes maintenance even easier.
TB6 Series II includes a dual output 24 V DC reed switch allowing for output redundancy or the addition of a second data logger. The second output could also be used for connecting HyQuest Solutions’ Bluetooth pulse counter CMCbt paired with the free FCD application that allow for easy and accurate field calibration even in noisy (urban) environments. The reed switch incorporates varistor protection against surges that may be induced on long, inappropriately shielded signal cables.
