With it’s precipitation sensor rain[e]H3 LAMBRECHT meteo GmbH prevailed against all competitors and has been awarded with the contract after participation in a tender of German Weather Service (DWD). DWD is the Meteorological Service of Germany and shall be deemed to be a reference in meteorology.

DWD detects the precipitation amount at full-time and extra official weather stations. At the public tender DWD asked for new precipitation sensors. Target of this action is to exchange all precipitation sensors that are presently installed at all stations. The detected measuring values have great importance for the provision of the core business of DWD.

The criterions for exclusion at the tenders of DWD are extensive and strict in order to fulfil highest quality demands to meteorological measuring equipment. The precipitation sensor rain[e]H3 has been tested intensively and was able to prevail at the end.

rain[e]H3 sets new standards in professional precipitation measurement with it’s innovative combination of weighing technology and a self-emptying collection vessel. Additionally it fulfils the high demands of DWD with regard to functionality and reliability.

rain[e]H3 is designed for extreme cold climate conditions of up to -40°C as it has 3 electronically regulated heating circles (ring-, funnel-outlet heating). It’s weather-proof and long-living all-metal housing fulfils the demands of DWD with regard to corrosion- and weather resistance. The integrated outdoor temperature sensor, the electronically monitoring when opening the housing and the remote maintenance are features of continuous further developments. Installation and maintenance of rain[e]H3 can be processed easily and quickly.
