The Solinst LevelVent 5 is a vented version of our popular Levelogger. The highly accurate datalogger is designed to record water level and temperature measurements during shallow groundwater and surface water deployments.
The LevelVent 5 logger contains Pressure & Temp Sensors, a battery, memory for up to 150,000 data logs, and hydrophobic filter within a 22 mm x 173 mm (7/8″ x 6.8″) stainless steel housing with a corrosion-resistant coating.
The LevelVent uses a gauged pressure transducer; it is open to the atmosphere via a vented cable to the wellhead. The compact LevelVent wellhead is designed to fit in a Solinst 2″ Well Cap Assembly, and provides easy connection for communication accessories.
The vented cable and Solinst LevelVent 5 logger are protected from moisture by permanent, built-in desiccants and hydrophobic filters in the logger and the wellhead.
The vented pressure transducer is made of Hastelloy®, making it extremely durable and accurate in a wide range of temperature and monitoring conditions. The sensor provides an accuracy of 0.05% FS, and can withstand 2 times over-pressure without permanent damage.
LevelVent 5 Applications
Ideal for shallow deployment: up to 65 ft (20 m) submergence
Aquifer characterization: pumping tests, slug tests, etc.
Stream gauging, lake, reservoir and dam management
Watershed, drainage basin and recharge monitoring
Stormwater and runoff monitoring
Water supply and tank level measurement
Long-term water level monitoring in wells and surface water
Vented Datalogger Advantages
Continuous, reliable water level data for longterm monitoring projects
No barometric compensation required, saving data processing time
Instant water level data for real-time aquifer test results
LevelVent 5 Programming & Communication
The LevelVent 5 is programmed and data downloaded using Solinst Levelogger Software and a PC Interface Cable. It can also be used with the Solinst Levelogger 5 App Interface and DataGrabber 5. Both accessories and PC Interface Cable conveniently connect directly to the LevelVent 5 wellhead.
Integrate the LevelVent 5 with Solinst Telemetry Systems, which use the latest wireless technologies. For deeper, hard to access applications, or areas that are prone to flooding, the Levelogger 5 Series of absolute pressure water level dataloggers are also options (see Model 3001 Levelogger 5 Series Data Sheet).
