The OTT Parsivel2 is an advanced laser-based disdrometer for comprehensive measurement of all precipitation types.  Accurate yet economical, the Parsivel2 captures both the size and speed of individual preciptation particles and a signal processor classifies the type of precipitation as well as the amount and intensity.


  • Accurate - measures the size and speed of individual precipitation particles, then computes all necessary meteorological parameters
  • Maintenance-free - no moving parts or collection bucket that would traditionally require regular maintenance
  • Durable - continuous, precise precipitation data in all environmental conditions and integrated overvoltage protection
  • Energy efficient - low power consumption and flexible separate controlled head heating
  • Flexible communication - standard ports for RS-485, SDI-12, USB, and impulse for connecting to a datalogger, automatic weather station (AWS), or laptop
  • Innovative design - robust aluminum housing and symmetrically arranged measuring heads prevent moisture from affecting laser band direction
