Pluvio
Pluvio

The OTT Pluvio² is an all-weather precipitation gauge that uses superior weight-based technology to measure the amount and intensity of rain, snow, and hail. It employs a high-precision load cell and algorithms that compensate for wind, temperature, and evaporation. It uses a high-capacity collection bucket to capture liquid, solid, and mixed precipitation types, and measure the weight of the collected water as a function of time.
