New Heated Rain Gages Measure Water Content of Snow
Campbell Scientific now offers the 52202 and CS700H heated rain gages.  The 52202 is manufactured by R. M, Young and is intended for standard applications. It measures precipitation in 0.004-in. increments, with an accuracy of 3 percent for up to 2 in./hr. 
The CS700H, manufactured by Hydrological Services, is ideal for measurement of high-intensity precipitation. It measures precipitation in 0.01-in. increments, and includes an internal siphon that allows the sensor to make accurate measurements for up to 27.6-in./hr. The CS700H comes in an AC version that runs on 110 Vac and a DC version that runs on batteries. To minimize power consumption, the CS700H’s heater is only turned on while precipitation is present and the temperature is in the range of -20° to 4°C.
