Overview

The LevelSender 5 is a simple, low cost system designed to wirelessly send data from Solinst dataloggers in the field, via cellular communication, to multiple emails and an SMS recipient. You can receive data right on your smart device.

LevelSender 5 remote stations are compact in design, which allows them to be discreetly installed inside a 2" diameter monitoring well or other housing.

Each LevelSender 5 device has a single port to connect one datalogger. An optional splitter provides connections for two dataloggers, allowing you to install a Levelogger and Barologger in the same well.

Along with water level, temperature, conductivity, barometric, or rainfall data, battery level and status updates from the remote LevelSender 5 are received with each data report.

FAQ's

Water level data from remote Leveloggers can be sent using the model 9500 LevelSender, which uses a GSM cellular modem to send the data to a home computer station or mobile device via email/SMS.
2.5" x 9.375" (with antenna folded down)
Yes, the LevelSender fits inside a 2” well casing. The dimensions are 2.5" x 9.375" (with antenna folded down).
Leveloggers are connected to LevelSenders using a Reader cable which connects to the Levelogger’s Direct Read Cable. This can be done by removing the black dust cap from the LevelSender, lining up the holes and pushing the Reader Cable connector into the LevelSender connection and screwing the Reader Cable into the connection on the LevelSender until tight. Then connect the other end of the reader cable to the top end of the Levelogger’s direct read cable.

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.
