The AquaVent 5 Vented Water Level Datalogger records accurate water level and temperature measurements in shallow groundwater and surface water applications. It combines Pressure & Temp Sensors, hydrophobic filters and datalogger within a 22 mm x 173 mm (7/8″ x 6.8″) stainless steel housing with corrosion-resistant coating.
The AquaVent 5 uses a gauged pressure transducer; it is open to the atmosphere via a vented cable to surface. Atmospheric pressure is applied to the transducer diaphragm, providing a cancellation effect for barometric pressure. This results in actual water level recordings.
The vented cable and Solinst AquaVent 5 logger are protected from moisture by built-in desiccants and hydrophobic filters.
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.
The robust memory can hold up to 150,000 data sets when programmed in Solinst Levelogger® Software.
