Details

The OTT Pluvio2 Precipitation Gauge is an all-weather precipitation gauge that uses superior weight-based technology to measure rainfall, snow or hail. Like the original, the new Pluvio2 measures both the amount and intensity of liquid, solid, and mixed precipitation. The instrument works according to the balance principle, taking into account external factors such as temperature and wind that could distort the results. Liquid or solid precipitation is measured immediately with no time delay for melting solid precipitation.

The Pluvio2 also offers additional features and benefits including real-time intensity, non real-time accumulation with a constant 5-minute delay, larger capacity option, larger collection area option, and multiple communication interfaces. The Model 200 features a collection capacity of 1500mm and a 200 cm orifice. The Model 400 offers a collection capacity of 750mm and a 400cm orifice. Electronics are hermetically sealed against damaging environmental influences. The carrier, bucket, and protective housing all feature a robust construction with high-quality materials.

The Pluvio2 includes built-in RS-485 and SDI-12 outputs for interfacing with NexSens iSIC and SDL data loggers. Sensor cable can be factory-connectorized with NexSens underwater connectors for integration to an SDL submersible data logger sensor port. Data collection options include direct-connect, landline phone, cellular, radio, Ethernet, WI-FI, and satellite telemetry. NexSens iChart Software is a Windows-based program for interfacing both locally (direct-connect) and remotely (through telemetry) to a NexSens data logger or network of data loggers.

  • (1) Precipitation gauge using the balance principle
  • (1) Bucket overlay
  • (1) Collecting bucket and pipe housing
  • (1) Base plate with balance system

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
What is the difference between the 200 and the 400?
The Pluvio2 200 has a collecting area of 200cm^2 and a recording capacity of 1,500 mm precipitation. The Pluvio2 400 has a larger collecting area of 400cm^2 and a smaller recording capacity of 750 mm precipitation.
Do the Pluvio2 200 and the heated Pluvio2 200 have the same reading capacity?
Yes, both models have the same features. The only difference is the addition of the integrated orifice rim heating in the second model.
Can I use my Pluvio2 400 in negative temperatures?
Yes but it is recommended that you add anti-freeze to the collecting duct, This solution enables the solid precipitation to melt in the collecting bucket and prevents severe deformation of the bucket floor if the collected precipitation freezes completely. See the manual (available under the Documents tab) for anti-freeze proportions.

Modeling Lake Erie’s 40 Percent Phosphorus Reduction Target

Results of new modeling research led in part by the Nature Conservancy and Ohio Sea Grant outline some of the steps that will be needed to reduce phosphorus entering Lake Erie by 40 percent. The findings underscore some difficulties, as well as positive effects that could be achieved for fish in streams flowing into the lake’s western basin. The Western Lake Erie Basin Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) was in the making for around three to five years, says Amy Brennan, Lake Erie conservation director with the Conservancy. She detailed the project’s findings during a meeting of Great Lakes reporters hosted by Ohio State University’s Stone Laboratory on Lake Erie’s Gibraltar Island. The CEAP sought to answer a few questions.

Air Quality Gains Improving Chesapeake Bay

Chesapeake Bay, the nation’s largest estuary, has suffered from excessive nutrient pollution and widespread hypoxic (low-oxygen) conditions for decades. And while best management practices on land and upgrades to wastewater treatment plants have helped to turn the tide against nutrient pollution, scientists at the University of Maryland have found that gains in air quality may also be improving the bay. Investigators say that it appears that recent water quality improvements in Chesapeake Bay appear to be driven more by air quality regulations than efforts to clean up water. The find comes as a surprise, as the Clean Air Act of 1990 was meant to address human health issues and streams sensitive to acidity.

Port Of Toledo Demo Project May Reduce Sediment Loads

The Port of Toledo, Ohio, receives more sediment each year than any other harbor in the Great Lakes. That number is somewhere around 800,000 cubic yards of sediment in the most recent year, say officials with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (DNR) who are working to find new ways to use the loads to benefit the people living nearby as well as Lake Erie overall. Scudder Mackey, chief of the agency’s Office of Coastal Management, discussed some of the initiatives underway to reduce sediments in the port while also helping farmers seeking healthy crop yields during a recent meeting of Great Lakes reporters hosted by Ohio State University’s Stone Laboratory on Lake Erie’s Gibraltar Island. Mackey also shared some other projects that are on the agency’s docket in the years ahead.
