Rainfall Monitoring

Rainfall History in Real-Time

Mission remote terminal units (RTUs) can connect to industry-standard rainfall tipping buckets and report rainfall totals. Monitor rainfall events and totals in real-time and gain precious minutes to prepare for floods and avoid spills. Graph rainfall on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis to analyze wet weather events in great detail. Rainfall data can be exported to Excel spread sheets, CSV files, or can be fed into existing SCADA systems via the Mission OPC software link.

Place Rain Gauges Where They are Needed
The ultra-reliable cellular data links will work across the block or county, so users can position rain gauges anywhere. Some customers have placed rain gauge stations over 100 miles from their home location.

Compare With Pump Runtimes and Flows for I & I Studies
Before utilities spend hundreds of thousands, if not millions, on sewer lines or plant capacity, long-term data on inflow and infiltration (I&I) is necessary. The Mission system helps users compare rainfall data from government sources or their own rain gauges with pump station runtimes or flow meter data. Mission supplies long-term graphing tools and many of these graphs can be implemented in user reports.

Standalone or Integrated Packages
Position rain gauges at selected lift stations for just a few more dollars to gain alarms, runtimes, starts, and rain data—all from the same unit. If users need to monitor just rainfall, Mission supplies a complete rain gauge station which includes:

  • Stand
  • Leveling plate
  • Rain gauge
  • Solar cell
  • Graph rainfall on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis
  • Place rain gauges where they are needed
  • Compare rainfall data with pump runtimes and flows
  • Standalone or integrated packages available

What You Will Need:

  • NOAA compliant rain gauges or use gauges supplied by Mission
  • MyDro 150 or M110 RTU will report rainfall in 1/100th inch increments on a 15-minute basis
  • MyDro 850 or M800 RTU will report in 1/100th inch increments every 2 minutes

You’re Never Alone

You will receive experienced technical support, including access to the people that built the system if needed. This includes comprehensive training, regular webinars, live support during business hours and after-hours support that is always available on a responsive callback basis for emergencies—at no extra charge.
