The HOBO Water Level data logger features high accuracy at a great price and ease-of-use, with no cumbersome vent tubes or desiccants to maintain. This data logger is ideal for recording water levels and temperatures in shallow wells, streams, lakes and freshwater wetlands.
View how the HOBO Water Level Logger compares to the Competition.
Lightning protection - no long signal wires, and electronics are shielded in stainless steel housing (see the Water Level logger sensor location drawing)
HOBOware Pro software provides easy conversion to accurate water level reading, fully compensated for barometric pressure (see demo) temperature, and water density.
Multiple-rate sampling (see demo) allows faster sampling at critical times such as when pumping starts or stops.
Available in 4 depth ranges
Ideal for use in wells, streams, lakes, wetlands and tidal areas
No-vent-tube design for easy reliable deployment
Available in stainless and titanium versions
Durable ceramic pressure sensor
Measurement: Water Level,Pressure, Barometric
Operation range: 0 to 400 kPa (0 to 58 psia); approximately 0 to 30.6 m (0 to 100 ft) of water depth at sea level, or 0 to 33.6 m (0 to 111 ft) of water at 3,000 m (10,000 ft) of altitude
Factory calibrated range: 69 to 400 kPa (10 to 58 psia), 0° to 40°C (32° to 104°F)
Burst pressure: 500 kPa (72.5 psia) or 40.8 m (134 ft) depth
Water level accuracy*: Typical error - 0.05% FS, 1.5 cm (0.05 ft) water
Maximum error: - 0.1% FS, 3 cm (0.1 ft) water
Raw pressure accuracy**: 0.3% FS, 1.20 kPa (0.17 psi) maximum error
Resolution: < 0.04 kPa (0.006 psi), 0.41 cm (0.013 ft) water
Pressure response time 90%: < 1 second
Thermal response time (90%)†: Approximately 10 minutes in water to achieve full temperature compensation of the pressure sensor
* With accurate reference water level measurement and Barometric Compensation Assistant data
** Absolute pressure sensor accuracy includes all pressure drift, temperature, and hysteresis-induced errors
† Maximum error due to rapid thermal changes is approximately 0.5%.
