How is the PWS100 different from a rain gage or snow depth sensor?

The PWS100 measures the size and velocity of particles in the air.  It can provide precipitation rate and water equivalent accumulation, but it is primarily used to report present weather codes, as defined by the World Meteorological Organization and National Weather Service, and particle size and velocity distributions. The PWS100 cannot measure snow depth, as it identifies water droplets in air.
