4.2 Programming a RRL Network

Step 5: Configuring Attached Leveloggers

4.2.1 Editing Levelogger Information Setting Up Levelogger Measurement Parameters

Note:

The only units available for the Levelogger Junior, LTC Levelogger Junior, Levelogger Gold and Barologger Gold are m (default), cm, and ft.

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

For the Level Channel, you can set the following parameters:

The Temperature Channel includes the following parameters:

LTC Levelogger Junior Measurement Parameters:

Note:

To calibrate the LTC Levelogger Junior, use Levelogger Software Version 4.0 or higher. The LTC Levelogger Junior should be calibrated before starting any new project.

Rainlogger Measurement Parameters:

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 RRL Gold Remote Station reports Rainlogger data to the Home Station, it will send the accumulated rainfall amount per sample period (based on RRL Station 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:

Your Rainlogger Edge must be using firmware version 3.000 or higher. Your Rainlogger firmware must be upgraded to 2.000 or higher.

After all Leveloggers have been entered and programmed as desired, proceed to Step 6.

Note:

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