Other Accessories

CS705
 
The CS705 snowfall adapter converts the TE525WS rain gage to a year-round rain and snow gage. It requires 2.5 gallons of antifreeze (10869). For customers who wish to supply their own antifreeze, a 1:1 mixture of propylene glycol and ethanol (PGE) is recommended.
 
The 10869 provides a package of four one-gallon containers of 50:50 PG:E Antifreeze for the CS705 Tipping Bucket Snowfall Adapter. The antifreeze can be shipped to continental US destinations ONLY via ground transport; air freight is NOT permissible.

Replacement Parts

5603
 
Users can generally replace the 5603 reed switch themselves. A screwdriver is required to replace the reed switch and rewire the connections. Alternatively, an RMA may be requested from Campbell Scientific, and the switch can be replaced by one of our technicians; this option may be more viable if the rain gauge is scheduled to undergo factory recalibration at the same time.
