The RG-11 is optical– not mechanical, chemical, or conductive. Consequently, it is far more rugged, sensitive and reliable than any other technology. The sensor is extremely sensitive, and virtually immune to false trips. Yet, it is completely unaffected by jostling and motion. There are no exposed conductors to corrode, and no openings for bugs to crawl into. There is no place for leaves or other debris to collect.
The RG-11 Rain Gauge is suitable for almost any application that requires a reliable and sensitive rain sensor, including:
You can use the RG-11 to reliably detect condensation or frost. In this mode, the Rain Gauge continuously monitors the clarity of the sensing surface.
The RG-11 Rain Gauge measures both rain accumulation and rain intensity. So, unlike conventional absorbent-disk style rain sensors, the RG-11 inhibit the watering cycle during a downpour, even before water accumulates. This saves water and customer complaints.
