Overview

The AquaVent 5 records accurate water level and temperature measurements in shallow groundwater and surface water applications, by combining pressure and temperature filters, hydrophobic filters and a datalogger all within a 22mm x 173mm stainless steel housing, that has corrosion-resistant coating.

The AquaVent 5 works by using a gauged pressure transducer that 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 AquaVent 5 is extremely durable and accurate in a wide range of temperature and monitoring conditions due to the vented pressure transducer being made of Hastelloy®.

The new increased memory has a capacity for 150,000 data sets, the sensor provides an accuracy of 0.05% FS and can withstand 2 times over-pressure without permanent damage making it the most accurate and durable Solinst AquaVent to date.

FAQ's

As the Levelogger App Interface will not connect directly to the top of a Solinst datalogger, it is necessary to have connection accessories. With the Levelogger or Rainlogger, one of the following accessories is required:

  • Direct Read Cable, clients use this option to suspend dataloggers in the field when they wish to communicate downhole.
  • When working with Leveloggers that are suspended from wireline, or cord, the units must be removed from the well and connected to either a Direct Read Cable (as above) or an Optical Adaptor.
  • For the LevelVent, just connect to the unit via the Vented Cable and LevelVent Wellhead that all units are suspended from in the field – no other connection accessories are required.
  • The AquaVent communication connection is made from the App Interface to the AquaVent Wellhead using an App Connector Cable that is ordered separately.
The Levelogger App Interface is portable hardware that connects to the top of your Levelogger via a Direct Read Cable/Adaptor, to a LevelVent Wellhead, or to an AquaVent Wellhead cable. Bluetooth wireless technology allows communication between the Levelogger App Interface and the smart device with the app installed. It allows viewing/downloading of data, and programming of Solinst dataloggers, as well as many other features.
Solinst offers a wide range of dataloggers that can be used with the Leveloggger App Interface. They include the complete, current Levelogger Edge range of units (Edge, Junior Edge, LTC Edge, Rainlogger Edge), previous Gold Leveloggers/Barologgers, and the latest vented datalogger editions, the AquaVent and LevelVent.
  • Program and start dataloggers in the field.
  • Simplify data management in the field by transporting and using less equipment.
  • View real-time readings.
  • Download and e-mail logged data files.
  • Calibrate LTC Leveloggers (NEW).
  • Run the diagnostic utility (NEW) – used for troubleshooting

Leveloggers. Provides detailed information on the datalogger,
and includes options for running a self-test, doing a memory
dump and creating/emailing reports.
