The dataloggers are installed using a Direct Read Cable threaded onto a Reader Cable, which is connected to one of four terminals on the STS Distribution Box.

One of two NPT plugs in the base of the Remote Station enclosure will need to be removed (using an Allen Key), a weathertight fitting threaded in its place. The Reader Cables are fed through armored protective conduit (supplied with the STS System) and into the base of the Nema 4X Enclosure through the weathertight fitting. The two wires at the end of the Reader Cable are inserted into the labeled terminals on the STS Distribution Box. A nut is threaded onto the fitting to anchor and seal the protective armored conduit to the STS enclosure. A Direct Read Cable with the datalogger connected is threaded onto the other end of the Reader Cable.

Specially designed Direct Read Wellheads can be used to deploy Leveloggers in a well. The Direct Read Cable threads to the Levelogger, while the socket at the opposite end of the Cable fits into the Direct Read Wellhead. The Reader Cable threads onto the Direct Read Cable at the wellhead. A hole may be drilled into the side of the wellhead and a fitting threaded in the hole. Reader Cables are fed through the fitting, and a nut threaded to the fitting to seal the other end of the protective armored conduit to the wellhead.

Contact Solinst directly for more details regarding specially designed wellheads.


When removing a Direct Read Cable from a Levelogger, ensure you only twist the coupling. To avoid possible damage, do not twist the strain relief on the Direct Read Cable.
