Solinst Levelogger Edge: Durable, accurate and reliable water level dataloggers

Solinst revolutionised electronic water level measurement when they introduced the Levelogger — the first combined datalogger and absolute pressure sensor — and they are still leading the industry to this day. 

The Levelogger Edge is a self contained water level datalogger — a level logger — using infra-red data transfer powered by a 10 year lithium battery (1 reading per minute), offering the flexibility of installing by use of a Direct Read Cable, wireline or Kevlar cord. The Levelogger Edge has a memory capacity of 40,000 temperature and water level data points, or up to 120,000 using the compression algorithm in linear sampling mode.

The Levelogger Edge's watertight stainless steel housing has a zirconium nitride coating providing excellent corrosion resistance. Each level logger contains an accurate platinum resistance temperature sensor (±0.05°) and  piezoresistive silicon with hastelloy pressure sensor for measuring water level (±0.05% FS). The water level sensor readings are automatically compensated for temperature.

The level loggers come in six pressure ranges: 5, 10, 20, 30, 100 and 200m. 

What does the pressure range of the water level sensor mean?

This is the maximum depth to which the level logger can be submerged without risk of damaging the water level sensor within it. In reality than can go deeper,  but as a rule of thumb Solinst recommend that if you do submerge the level logger beyond this depth it should not exceed 50% of the rating. So for a M200 (200m rating), do not submerge it beyond 300m.

What does full scale (FS) mean?

What does full scale mean in terms of a water level sensor accuracy? This means that the accuracy is related to the maximum pressure rating of the water level sensor on the level logger. So for example, if you have an M5 (5m rating) then it is accurate to within ±0.25cm, where as an M200 (200m rating) will be accurate to within ±10cm.

How our readings compensation for pressure?

The level sensor readings are automatically compensated for temperature but not barometric pressure (for automated barometric pressure use the LevelVent). A 3001 Barologger Edge is required for barometric compensation.

Easy setup

Solinst's free and powerful software makes setup is a breeze using inbuilt Wizards for Levelogger configuration and barometric pressure compensation.

Telemetry? No problem!

Solinst loggers can be connected to any SDI-12 logger or take advantage of Solinst's own radio telemetry system or the powerful Solinst Levelsender cellular modem.

 

Applications: Long-term water level monitoring in wells, surface water bodies and seawater environments, stream gauging, as well as lake, tank and reservoir level. 

 

Quality Accessories for Quality, Cost-effective Data

 

Do you want direct access to your logger without removing it from the well? Use a direct read cable to interface with the logger in situ. They come in a range of standard lengths but custom lengths are also available.

The 3001 Barologger Edge provides intelligent barometric compensation for the entire Levelogger Edge, LTC and Junior range.

The Solinst Optical Reader provides a cost-effective means of quickly accessing your logged data directly on your laptop.
