The SolSat 5 robust weatherproof enclosure is designed to be installed anywhere that suits your water monitoring application.

Remember, a clear view to the sky is required for best performance and battery life.

The SolSat 5 has an IP rating of 66, so it is dust-proof and can withstand heavy rain, but can not be submerged. The operating temperature range is -20ºC to +55ºC.

The SolSat 5 comes with a high-performance helical antenna. It is designed to work in any situation. The antenna uses an SMA connection, therefore, you can source other antennas or an antenna cable extension with an SMA male connector, if required.

See the Levelogger and Vented Dataloggers User Guides for details on proper deployment of these instruments.
