The Instromet rain sensor uses an infrared sensor which countd the water drops running through a funnel. A filter in the bottom of the rain conus cause a uniform flow of precipitation through the funnel. Every 100 droplets passing through the beam equalling 1mm of rainfall.
Using this type of rain sensor requires some more claening maintanance then traditional tipping bucket type sensors.
