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.

What's Included:
  • (1) Precipitation gauge using the balance principle
  • (1) Bucket overlay
  • (1) Collecting bucket and pipe housing
  • (1) Base plate with balance system
  • (1) Set of installation accessories

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.

'Unexplained paradox' explained: Why flashy desert channels look the way they do

Stream channels in desert landscapes can lay bone-dry for weeks or months at a time before an erratic, volatile storm suddenly turns a reach into a raging torrent. But when the water recedes, the channel often looks like not much happened, with no sign of structures like point bars, cut banks, riffles and pools that one might expect to see if a stream with perennial flow suddenly lost its water. For scientists who study these landscapes, that's the " unexplained paradox ": Despite having the occasional hydraulics seemingly capable of building some complex streambed topography, desert channels tend to remain simple, smooth and straight. A new study published in the journal Geology is the first to explain what's going on.

Microbes around sea floor methane seeps found sequestering greenhouse gas

A study published in Nature Communications shows that microbes living in carbonate rocks on the ocean floor are helping sequester a greenhouse gas, according to a release on the journal’s website . The microbial ecosystems thrive around methane seeps, where they consume methane and sulphate. Layers of carbonate around these seeps have often been regarded as lifeless, but the new research suggests that they are both a product of and home to countless microbes. These ecosystems have not been considered in models that examine greenhouse gas exchange in the ocean, says Samantha Joye, microbial geochemist at the University of Georgia. She says the findings could inspire reexamination of past research. Image: A methane seep offshore of Virginia.

New amphibian chytrid fungus tests ease search for wide-ranging frog disease

Amphibian chytrid fungus is implicated in the drastic decline of amphibians across the world, but much about the disease it causes remains unknown. A new study presents a first step in understanding how the fungus persists in aquatic habitats before it takes up residence in frogs themselves. Scientists discovered the fungus and its effects in 1998 after frog populations were found declining in remote, protected areas where some of the usual threats to amphibians -- habitat loss and pollution -- didn't apply. The fungus has since been found killing frogs in Australia, the western U.S., South America and more places across the globe. Yet many aspects of the disease are still unexplained. For example, it infects some populations while others appear immune for reasons that aren't clear.
