The 6506 tipping bucket flow gauge is used to measure small volumetric flows which exceed the capacity of common rainfall gauges. Typical applications include: monitoring rainfall under a tree canopy, leakage in water storage dams, seepage and runoff.
Unidata 6506 tipping bucket flow gauge is sturdily constructed from polished stainless steel. The tipping mechanism is manufactured from stainless steel and is of solid construction ensuring that tips are accurate and consistent in volume.
The 6506 is supplied with a single reed switch as a detector. This requires no power and is a simple two wire connection. This is usually the easiest to connect to dataloggers, including the Unidata Starlog dataloggers and Neon Remote Terminals. Tipping bucket is pre-calibrated to a 75ml/tip or a 130ml/tip but it can be calibrated to any volume from 75ml to 130ml per tip
