Default Belfort Instrument- Quality Products by Quality People

One of the best companies in America.

All Weather Precipitation Gauge: AEPG 600/1000

All Weather Rain Gauge

Belfort’s years of experience in precipitation measurement is behind the development of this highly accurate state of the art all weather precipitation gauge. By combining proven mechanical design with no moving parts with the latest in electronic sensor technology, the AEPG series of sensors makes it possible to measure all types of precipitation in all weather conditions without human intervention and costly maintenance. By using the latest available technology and manufacturing techniques Belfort is able to offer this latest precipitation product at a fraction of the cost of older mechanical designs.

All Environmental Operation

•-65° to +135° F (-55° to +55° C) Operation Range
•Non-stick fluoropolymer collection orifice
•Optional event controlled low power heater
•Optional Belfort wind shield

High Reliability
•3 Independent transducers provide redundant measurement (auto compensates for trasducer failure)
•On-board processor compensates for temperature and environmental anomalies
•No moving parts
•No input restrictions
•Digital RS-232 output with Programmable format

Meets Tough International Gov’t Requirements:
•High Accuracy:+/- 0.01 inches (0.25mm) or 0.1% FS
•High Resolution: +/- 0.01 inches (0.25mm)
•8″ Diameter (50 in² Area ) or 16 cm Diameter (200 cm² Area) Collection Orifice
•Precipitation Rate: 0.01 in (0.25 mm)/hr. to 120 in. (304 cm)/hr.
•Capacity:24 inches (609 mm) or 40 inches (1016 mm)

Easy to Install and Maintain
•2 inch ID ANSI Schedule 40 Steel Pipe Mount with 3 screw level adjustment
•LED Fault isolation display
•Programmable Digital output to display and monitor performance variables

The All Environment Precipitation Gauge collects precipitation though a standard 8 inch (203.2mm) NWS orifice. Precipitation falls into a bucket which is supported by three precision sensors that weigh the precipitation amount independently and transmits the weight data to a central processing unit that compares each set of data and calculates the amount of precipitation. It converts this measurement into RS-232 format output for digital transmission to a recording device of customers selection. These pulses are transmitted as binary digital signals or as contact closures of a reed relay device.

Standard Features

•Non-Stick fluoropolymer coated collection orifice
•0.001 inch resolution RS232 output
•Standard 2 inch ID ANSI Schedule 40 pipe mount

•24 inch (609mm) or 40 inch (1016mm) capacity
•Heated Collection orifice (recommended for wet snow collection)
•AC or DC powered
•Single or double Belfort Alter Shield
•Wireless internet connectivity and data processing capability
•Data Output Options: •In/mm

The Standard Measurement

Over the years, our products have been deployed in mission critical applications, in virtually all corners of the globe and beyond. From providing wind sensors for the Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk, to the development of mapping instruments which helped support early efforts to map the surface of the moon. We have been at the forefront of environmental measurement and are leaders in the design, manufacturing and maintenance of advanced environmental measurement systems.
