All-weather meteorological stations in the Carpathian Mountains - Hungary

For a development project on the Hungarian hydrometrical network operated by the Hungarian Meteorological Service (OMSZ), 141 new meteorological measuring stations were installed across the country.

The all-weater climate stations have to provide reliable and accurate data in all climate conditions, especially in the Carpathian Basin, where climate varies widely. The average annual precipitation amount is 500-750 or 20-30 inches - liquid or solid.

During the exploratory phase the OMSZ performed some market research, and as a result they selected the OTT Pluvio² as the best solution.

High accuracy precipitation gauge in harsh weather conditions

OTT Pluvio² - Weighing Rain Gauge

All-weather, high accuracy rain gauge for continuous data collection

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.

  • Cumulative precipitation, precipitation intensity, bucket content in real time and non real time
  • Weighing principle
  • All-weather precipitation gauge without moving parts according to WMO guide line No. 8
  • SDI-12 / RS-485, pulse
