The Gira rain sensor can be operated in connection with the weather station as basic device, the analogue sensor interface, or the binary input, 6-gang 24 V. The required power supply (24 V DC) for the electronics is provided by these devices (except for the binary input, 6-gang 24 V). Additional voltage of 24 V AC/DC is required for the internal heating. A heating transformer can be used to provide this voltage to the rain sensor 0/10 V. Connecting to systems from other manufacturers is also possible. The device is suitable for outdoor installation. A 45° bracket to mount the sensor on a wall or pole is included in the scope of supply.
