Accurately monitor your rainfall remotely with the Farmo Rain Gauge. This rain gauge can be placed at any location with LoRaWAN coverage, measure your rainfall and send this data to your dashboards.
Features a patented single spoon tipping bucket. Configured for simple set up and visualisation on the Farmo dashboard.
There are 2 variants of this device. One has the LoRaWAN node and antenna inside the Rain Gauge itself and is a "neater" looking product but has less range (approximately 1km). The other variant has a external LoRaWAN node connected by a cable to the Rain Gauge and can reach up to 10km by line of sight. Both provide the same data.
Maintenance required: Tipping spoon rain gauges are known as the most accurate of rain measuring devices, but they can be affected if spiders or ants get inside and build webs or nests. It depends on the location and the time of the year, but you should check every few months and apply preventive measures if required. Some customers have used insect deterrent sprays that are used on other farm electrical appliances.
