Water Level Recorder

  • 0.05% FS Accuracy
  • Corrosion resistant Titanium based PVD coating
  • Robust Hastelloy pressure sensor

The Levelogger Edge records highly accurate groundwater and surface water level and temperature measurements.

It combines a pressure sensor, temperature detector, 10-year lithium battery, and datalogger, sealed within a 7/8" x 6.25" (22 mm x 159 mm) stainless steel housing with Titanium based PVD coating. The Levelogger Edge measures absolute pressure using a Hastelloy pressure sensor, offering excellent durability and reliability. Combined with the Titanium based PVD coating, both elements have high corrosion resistance in harsh environments, allowing stable readings in extreme pressure and temperature conditions. The Hastelloy sensor can withstand 2 times overpressure without permanent damage. The Levelogger Edge features a wide temperature compensated pressure range (0 to 50ºC, -10 to 50ºC for Barologger Edge), and rapid thermal response time. The Levelogger Edge has high resolution and an accuracy of 0.05% FS. The convenient Barologger Edge provides the easiest and most accurate method of barometric compensation.

Features

  • 0.05% FS Accuracy
  • Corrosion resistant Titanium based PVD coating
  • Robust Hastelloy pressure sensor
  • Accurate temperature compensation
  • Memory for up to 120,000 readings
  • Basic and advanced data compensation options

The Levelogger Edge has a battery life of 10 years based on   1-minute sampling rate. It has FRAM memory for 40,000 sets of data points – or up to 120,000 using the compressed linear sampling option. The Levelogger Edge uses a Faraday cage design, which protects against power surges or electrical spikes caused by lightning. Its durable maintenance-free design, high accuracy and stability, make the Levelogger Edge the most reliable instrument for longterm, continuous water level recording

Applications

  • Aquifer characterization: pumping tests, slug tests, etc.
  • Watershed, drainage basin and recharge monitoring
  • Stream gauging, lake and reservoir management
  • Harbour and tidal fluctuation measurement
  • Wetlands and stormwater run-off monitoring
  • Water supply and tank level measurement
  • Mine water and landfill leachate management
  • Long-term water level monitoring in wells, surface water bodies and seawater environments

 

Flexible Communication

Levelogger PC Software is streamlined, making it easy to program dataloggers, and to view and compensate data, in the office or in the field. The software has useful programming options, including compressed and repeat sampling, and future start/stop. Data compensation has been simplified, and allows multiple data files to be barometrically compensated at once. The extremely intuitive Solinst Levelogger App, and Levelogger App Interface on your in-field Leveloggers, creates a Bluetooth® connection between your Leveloggers and smart device. Also an option, the DataGrabber is a field-ready, USB data transfer unit designed specifically for the Levelogger Series. Remote monitoring options include the LevelSender, a simple and compact device that fits right in a 2" well, STS Telemetry Systems, and RRL Remote Radio Link. In addition, Levelogger Series dataloggers are SDI-12 compatible.

Levelogger Setup

Programming Leveloggers is extremely intuitive. Simply connect to a PC using an Optical Reader or PC Interface Cable. All in one screen fill in your project information and sampling regime. Templates of settings can be saved for easy re-use. The Levelogger time may be synchronized to the computer clock. There are options for immediate start or future start and stop times. The percentage battery life remaining and the amount of free memory are indicated on the settings screen. Leveloggers can also be programmed with a sampling regime and start/stop times using the Solinst Levelogger App on your smart device.

Convenient Sampling Options

Leveloggers can be programmed with linear, event-based, or a user-selectable sampling schedule. Linear sampling can be set from 1/8 second to 99 hours. The Levelogger Edge can be programmed with compressed linear sampling, which increases memory from 40,000 to up to 120,000 readings. Event-based sampling can be set to record when the level changes by a selected threshold. Readings are checked at the selected time interval, but only recorded in memory if the condition has been met. A default reading is taken every 24 hours if no “event” occurs. The Schedule option allows up to 30 schedule items, each with its own sampling rate and duration. For convenience, there is an option to automatically repeat the schedule.

Data Download, Viewing and Export

Data is downloaded to a PC with the click of a screen icon. There are multiple options for downloading data, including ‘Append Data’ and ‘All Data’. The software also allows immediate viewing of the data in graph or table format using the ‘Real Time View’ tab. The level data is automatically compensated for temperature, and the temperature data is also downloaded. Barometric compensation of Levelogger data is performed using the Data Wizard, which can also be used to input manual data adjustments, elevation, offsets, density, and adjust for Barometric efficiency. The software allows easy export of the data into a spreadsheet or database for further processing. The Solinst Levelogger App also allows you to view and save real-time, or logged data right on your smart device.

Helpful Utilities

The ‘Self-Test Diagnostic Utility’ can be used in case of an unexpected problem. It checks the functioning of the program, calibration, backup and logging memories, the pressure transducer, temperature sensor and battery voltage, as well as enabling a complete Memory Dump, if required. A firmware upgrade will be available from time to time, to allow upgrading of the Levelogger Edge, as new features are added.
