Water Level Sensors

OTT

PLS

Design features such as multiple communication outputs (SDI-12 or 4 … 20 mA), stainless steel housing, and a rugged cable make this sensor ideal for monitoring water level in a variety of applications.

Application: Surface water, Groundwater
Measurement technology: Vented pressure cell
Parameters measured: Water level, Pressure, Temperature
Product Highlights: Water level and temperature measurement – for use with external data logger
Measurement range: 0 … 4, 10, 20, 40, and 100 m
Accuracy: ± 0.05% FS
Internal data logger: Yes

FEATURES
  • The robust ceramic pressure cell offers industry-leading accuracy and does not deform over time like membrane technology, providing long-term measurement stability
  • Rugged design: Ceramic pressure cell resistant to physical force (5 x burst pressure) and enclosure made of high-quality saltwater resistant steel for use in coastal environments
  • Built-in microcontroller – compensates for temperature effects and applies correction values for gravitational acceleration and water density
  • Vented pressure probe, automatically compensates for changes in barometric pressure
  • Robust cable with Kevlar core for length stabilization and capillary tube for venting
  • Simple setup and connection to external dataloggers using SDI-12 or 4 … 20 mA interfaces
  • Optimized resolution is achieved by assigning the 4 … 20 mA to that part of the measuring range that is actually required
  • Water temperature output in addition to water level (for SDI-12 output)
