Long-term stable and robust rain gauge for the detection of liquid, solid and mixed precipitation. The weighing principle of the Pluvio² S allows accurate and reliable measurement in rain, sleet, hail or snow. The measuring principle allows the accurate recording of even the smallest amounts of precipitation (eg light drizzle). It saves space and is light compared to the proven Pluvio² L.

An application example can be found in the project Intensive Measuring Area Ebergötzen (Uni GÖ).
