Overview

PRODUCT DISCONTINUED - REPLACED BY THE LEVELOGGER EDGE

The Solinst Levelogger Gold is a water and level temperature recording device representing the next generation of water level dataloggers. It is greatly improved over previous versions delivering higher resolution and high accuracy of 0.05%. The levelogger Gold has improved transducer, temperature and clock accuracies all designed to deliver superb accuracy, long term stability and a 10 year battery life based on a reading every minute making Leveloggers the ideal device for recording water levels.

A Zirconium Nitride coating resists corrosion of the water tight design enabling trouble free easy recording of water levels. The sealed Faraday cage design greatly simplifies maintenace and provides protection against electrical spikes caused by lightning.

The Levelogger Gold can operate in a multitude of temperatures from -20°C to 80°C with a response time of <1 minute and the transfer of data is a simple procedure using optical infra-red interface, serial at 9600 Baud, conversion to RS232 or USB computer connection.

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.
Leveloggers are connected to LevelSenders using a Reader cable which connects to the LeveloggerLevelogger’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.
Within the diagnostic utility there is an option called ‘read memory dump’ this will access previous logs from a backup location. This dumps all of the Leveloggers memory into a .xle file.
Try submerging the Levelogger in warm water, this will warm the Levelogger and possibly give it enough power to access the last dataset.

The free app is available on both Apple® and Android™ smart devices.
Apple devices must be running iOS 11 or later on the following compatible devices:

  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • iPad mini
  • iPod touch.

Android devices must be running version 5.0 or higher. Solinst does not guarantee compatibility on all devices running 5.0, but testing confirms the following can be used:

  • Phone: Samsung Galaxy S4 - Model SGH-1337M
  • Phone: Samsung Galaxy S5 - Model SM-G900W8
  • Tablet: Samsung Tab 4 (10.1”) - Model SM-T530NU

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.
