Abstract: The paper presents the design and implementation of a smart tipping-bucket rain gauge that uses a universal frequency do digital converter characterised by period and impulse counting measuring capabilities with on-line accuracy control and a serial interface connected to a transmitter-receiver RF module that provides a wireless communication between the smart tipping-bucket rain gauge (TBR) and a host unit expressed by a FieldPoint real-time controller or a laptop PC associated with a weather monitoring network The TBR sensor tests in dynamic conditions are performed using a FieldPoint based system. The system consist in a submersible pump that works under the FieldPoint control and assure the accurate control of water flow rates delivered to the rain gauge funnel. The rain gauge calibration ensures precise conversion of bucket tip times to actual rainfall rates. The data acquired during the calibration is stored in FieldPoint system memory and used for an accurate rain fall measur ement after an intelligent data processing based on designed and implemented neural network. Data logging and data communication are parts of the LabVIEW real time software developed for the present system. (More)
