The Hyquest Solutions TB3 is a high-quality tipping bucket rain gauge for measuring rainfall and precipitation in urban and rural locations. Due to the integrated siphon, the gauge delivers high levels of accuracy across a broad range of rainfall intensities.

Reliable Results
The TB3’s tried and proven design ensures long-term, accurate, and repeatable results. It is manufactured from high-quality, durable materials that provide long-term stability in the harshest environments. It consists of a robust powder-coated aluminum enclosure, an aluminum base and stainless steel finger filter and fasteners.

Easy Maintenance
TB3 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 TB3’s base incorporates two water outlets at the bottom, allowing water collection and data verification. Maintenance of the TB3 is easy because removal of the outer enclosure and access to the tipping bucket mechanism and finger filter can be done by using the quick-release fasteners.

Dual Output
TB3 includes a dual output 24 VDC reed switch allowing for output redundancy or the addition of a second data logger. The reed switch incorporates varistor protection against surges that may be induced on long, inappropriately shielded signal cables.

Questions & Answers
What is the purpose of the dual reed switch on the TB Series rain gauges?
Dual reed switches are provided for several reasons. First, two isolated switches permit the control of two separate circuits; e.g. a local counter and a telemetry circuit. Additionally, the parallel connection of both switches increases the current carrying capacity of the contact system if required. Finally, parallel switch operation confers a degree of redundancy in locations where data from the rain gauge is critical to flood warning, etc.
Can the Hyquest Solutions TB3 tipping bucket rain gauge be recalibrated?
There are a few options for re-calibrating the Hyquest Solutions TB3 tipping bucket rain gauge: Field Calibration Device, Laboratory Calibration Unit, or Recalibration Service at Hyquest Solutions’ factory. Contact Hyquest Solutions for more information.

Applied Research and Innovative Solutions: Creating CHNGES at Western Kentucky University

Long-standing environmental monitoring programs have the power to support a large number of research initiatives and policy changes—however, actually starting these networks can prove challenging. Not only is starting the program difficult, but keeping things operational for decades to come has also been challenging for environmental professionals hoping to make an impact with applied research. Jason Polk, Professor of Environmental Geoscience and Director of the Center for Human GeoEnvironmental Studies (CHNGES) at Western Kentucky University, is all too familiar with this process.

Combating Water Insecurity in Saskatchewan with Real-Time Data

The prairies of Saskatchewan can be described as one of the least water-secure parts of Canada, making water quality monitoring essential for informed resource management in a region already facing water insecurity. While natural physical properties worsen some of the poor water quality conditions in the region, others are connected to land use. Having grown up spending summers on the shores of Lake Huron, Helen Baulch, an associate professor at the School of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Saskatchewan , has always been dedicated to the protection of water resources. Looking back fondly at her childhood playing along the shore, Baulch also recalls the invasion of quagga mussels during her teenage years and watching the lake change as a result.

Seametrics Turbo Turbidity Logger: Boost your Turbidity Monitoring

The Seametrics Turbo Turbidity Logger is a self-cleaning turbidity sensor capable of internally logging over 260,000 data records. The sensor enables researchers, compliance officers, and contractors to monitor turbidity in various applications, from construction and dredging sites to wastewater effluent.  Due to its narrow width, this device can be deployed in a range of areas, from small well spaces to rivers and streams. The stainless steel housing and built-in wiper allow the sensor to withstand long-term deployments and reduce the need for maintenance trips.  The logger accurately records temperature and turbidity up to a depth of 50 meters.
