  • Parameters included in the precipitation data message
  • Update interval in the time based auto-send mode
  • Precipitation units
  • Hail units
  • Auto-send mode
  • Counter reset
  • Rain accumulation limit
  • Hail accumulation limit.

Make the desired setting with the following command. Select the correct value/letter for the setting fields.

Command format in ASCII and NMEA 0183:

aRU,R=x,I=x,U=x,S=x,M=x,Z=x,X=x,Y=x<cr><lf>

Command format in SDI-12:

aXRU,R=x,I=x,U=x,S=x,M=x,Z=x,X=x,Y=x!
R, I, U, S, M, Z, X, Y Precipitation sensor setting fields.
x Input value for the setting
<cr><lf> Command terminator in ASCII and NMEA 0183

0RU,U=I<cr><lf>

Changing the auto-send mode to the tipping bucket mode:

0RU,M=C<cr><lf>

0RU,M=C<cr><lf>

Making the Rain amount Rc and Rain intensity Ri available both in the precipitation message and composite data message:

0RU,R=1010000010100000<cr><lf>

0RU,R=10100000&10100000<cr><lf>
For more information about composite message fields, see Composite data message (aR0).

The response after the change:

0R3<cr><lf>

0R3,Rc=0.00M,Ri=0.0M<cr><lf>

Example (SDI-12, device address 0):

Changing the counter reset mode (resets the precipitation counters):

0XRU,Z=M!0<cr><lf>
