Is there a preset upper limit for the intensity (such as 40 mm per 30 min) that a TE525-L can handle?

The accuracy of the TE525-L diminishes as rainfall intensity increases (see the Accuracy specification) because at higher intensities, rain will keep pouring into the tipping mechanism as it is tipping, causing missed tips. The maximum listed intensity in the specifications is 2 to 3 in./hr, which would give an accuracy of +0%, -5%.
