The rain collector is designed to meet the guidelines of the World Meteorological Organization.
Rain enters the collector cone, passes through a debris-filtering screen, and collects in one chamber of the tipping spoon.
The spoon tips when it has collected an amount of water equal to the increment in which the collector measures (0.01″ or 0.2 mm).
As the spoon tips, it causes a switch closure.
The rain water drains out through the screened drains in the base of the collector.
The shape is aerodynamically designed to minimize rainfall catch reduction caused by high winds.
The body and base of the collector are constructed of tough, UV resistant plastic.
The rain collector comes with a mounting base that can be mounted to a pole or post.
Also included are the bird spikes (steel tips to be inserted on the edge).
