Rain Gauge

The Rain Bird Rain Gauge customizes the weather data gathering features of Maxicom by providing site-specific rainfall measurements. The central controller retrieves this information daily, adjusting station runtimes using the site-specific weather data.

The Rain Gauge may be used to automatically interrupt Maxicom² during an irrigation cycle if it starts to rain. If enough rainfall occurs, further irrigation will be cancelled. If only a small amount of rainfall occurs, irrigation will resume, adjusting runtimes for the amount of rainfall that occurred.
