4.3.2 Set Up Levelogger Measurement Parameters

In the lower portion of the Datalogger Information screen is the window for setting channel parameters. The software will detect the available channels when the Datalogger Information settings are read.

Rainlogger Measurement Parameters

Note:

You must program your Rainloggers in order to enter a Rainfall Cal Constant (the amount of rainfall per tip of the rain gauge), but you do not have to set them to record independently.

There is one channel of measurement for Rainloggers. The 'RainFall' Channel records each tip time by the connected tipping-bucket and outputs the amount of rainfall per tip (input Rainfall Cal Constant). When an STS Edge reports Rainlogger data to the Home Station, it will send the accumulated rainfall amount per sample period (based on STS Edge Sample Rate). To determine the exact time that a tip occurred, the Rainlogger would have to be set to record in its own internal memory, which stores each tip event.

Note:

When an STS Edge reports Rainlogger data to the Home Station, it will send the accumulated rainfall per sample period (based on STS Edge Sample Rate).

After filling out the required fields, click Save Settings and OK to apply the information. The Datalogger Setup window will again be shown.

Continue entering information for each of the attached dataloggers. When each datalogger has been programmed, click Next on the Datalogger Setup window. The Alarms Setup window will open.
