5 : More Than a Number
Levelogger 5 is Much More

Solinst Levelogger 5 — the 5th generation Levelogger brings over 25 years of engineering and design experience with it. Everything about the new Levelogger 5 design focuses on providing high-quality water level data our customers can rely on, with all of the accuracy and ease of use expected from Solinst.

The Levelogger 5 is a self contained water level datalogger, using infra-red data transfer powered by a 10 year lithium battery, offering the flexibility of installing by use of a Direct Read Cable, wireline or Kevlar cord. The Levelogger 5 has a memory capacity of 150,000 temperature and water level data points.

What is a Water Level Datalogger?

A water level datalogger is an instrument that automatically and continuously records fluctuations in water level. Water level data logs are stored in the datalogger's memory and can be downloaded using software, or can be collected by other means such as a smart device app, telemetry, or data acquisition system.

Many water level dataloggers use a pressure sensor to measure water pressure above the water level datalogger zero measurement point. Water pressure readings can then be converted to water level equivalent measurements. Solinst offers both absolute and vented (gauged) pressure sensor water level dataloggers. An absolute water level datalogger measures both water and atmospheric pressure; therefore water level data needs to be barometrically compensated. A vented water level datalogger is vented to the atmosphere and only measures water pressure.

Typically, water level dataloggers are programmed, stopped, started and set to record at a specific interval using a software program. Solinst water level dataloggers can be set to record water levels as often as 1/8 of a second. A water level datalogger is an alternative to using a water level meter, which requires personnel to manually measure and record water levels. As such, water level dataloggers are ideal for long-term, uninterrupted water level monitoring and for short-term hydrogeological studies that require a high frequency of water level recordings.

Solinst water level dataloggers also record water temperature; in addition, the Levelogger 5 LTC records conductivity. Solinst water level dataloggers are compact instruments and combine the pressure sensor, temperature sensor, conductivity sensor, memory, and long-lasting battery in one durable housing.

All-in-one water level dataloggers make deployment easy. Solinst provides the option of deploying via simple wireline/rope or using direct read cables to allow communication while the datalogger is installed and logging (vented water level loggers are deployed using vented communication cables). Water level dataloggers can be used to measure groundwater levels, as well as surface water levels in rivers, streams, lakes, oceans, etc.
