The 6506 tipping bucket flow gauge is used to measure small volumetric flows which exceed the capacity of common rainfall gauges. Typical applications include monitoring rainfall under a tree canopy, leakage in water storage dams, seepage and runoff.
The 6506 is supplied with a single-reed switch as a detector. This requires no power and is a simple two-wire connection. This is usually the easiest to connect to data loggers, including the Unidata Starlog dataloggers and Neon Remote Terminals. Tipping bucket is pre-calibrated to a 75ml/tip or a 130ml/tip but it can be calibrated to any volume from 75ml to 130ml per tip
- Unidata Tipping Bucket Flow Gauge used for small volumetric flows which exceed the capacity of common rainfall gauges.
- Typical applications include monitoring rainfall under a tree canopy; leakage in water storage dams; seepage and runoff.
- The gauge can be set on the ground or mounted above ground using bricks or concrete blocks.
