Precision Level Transducer Simultaneously Monitors Conductivity, Temperature and Depth

November 2, 2010
The transducer monitors and logs conductivity to a 1-percent accuracy as well as temperature and pressure levels. This transducer''s internal 5-year 3.6 V lithium battery has on-board surge protection making it ideal for remote environmental data collection and process, including environmental and watershed management applications, ground water, surface water, canal and harbor monitoring. The transducer features a fully sealed design, multiple interfaces, and an internal memory of 8 MB that is capable of storing up to 550,000 data conductivity, level and temperature measurements. It has a level accuracy of ±0.1-percent FS total error band, which includes changes in temperature within the compensated temperature range of 0 to 50 degrees C, and a conductivity range of 5-200,000 µS/cm with an accuracy of 20 µS/cm. User-friendly software created specifically for the unit, comes standard with the new transducer. Available for both PC and mobile applications, users can easily graph, export and manage data using the new software.
