Solinst Readout Unit

18 January 2022


The Solinst Readout Unit (SRU) is an in-field device designed to take and display instant water level readings from a deployed Solinst datalogger.
When connected, you can also select a real-time sampling rate and start a real-time monitoring session independent of the datalogger’s internal logging mode. Real-time logs can be saved in the SRU memory.

The SRU has an internal barometer, which provides the option of showing and saving real-time water level readings corrected to ambient air pressure.

The SRU also functions as a data download and storage device. It has a robust flash memory allowing you to download and save multiple log files from a number of dataloggers. Saved log files can be viewed on the SRU and transferred to a PC.

The SRU provides access to useful information about the connected datalogger’s status, including battery level, memory, serial number, firmware version, and logging mode, as well as the SRU status.

How the Solinst Readout Unit Works

The SRU connects to a Levelogger’s Direct Read Cable, a LevelVent Wellhead, or AquaVent Wellhead connector cable.

Using push-buttons, it is easy to power-on and navigate through all SRU menu options. The LCD screen contrast is adjustable to ensure easy viewing in any field condition.

To transfer data files to a PC, the SRU connects using a USB cable. Levelogger software is used to download, view, export, delete data and set up dataloggers. Through the software, the SRU has upgradable firmware, which allows for future improvements and compatibility with new dataloggers.

Features and Benefits of the SRU:

  • Convenient and portable
  • Clear LCD screen for viewing readings and setting up real-time logging
  • Connects to a Levelogger’s Direct Read Cable, or LevelVent or AquaVent Wellhead
  • Real-time logging and data download does not interrupt running datalogger
  • Useful when conducting aquifer tests
  • Quick way to check the status of a deployed datalogger
  • Uses one replaceable 9V battery
  • User-upgradable firmware
