The PT-500 is a rugged submersible pressure transmitter designed for highly accurate water level measurement in streams, lakes, rivers, and other water bodies.
The APG PT-500 submersible pressure transducer is designed for use in a wide variety of environmental monitoring applications. The sensor is ideally suited for measuring water level in weirs, flumes, small to large streams, ponds, lakes, irrigation channels, and groundwater wells. The sensor is installed in a fixed location below the minimum expected water level, and a cable containing the sensor signals and vent tube is connected to a data logger mounted above flood stage.
The PT-500 measures the combined pressure exerted on it by the atmosphere and the head of water above it. A vent tube in the cable automatically corrects for changes in barometric pressure, and measured values are mathematically compensated for all linearity and temperature errors. With +/-0.1% Full Scale accuracy, the PT-500 provides high performance and accuracy over a wide range of operating conditions. The housing is constructed with laser welded 316L stainless steel.
The sensor features a plug-and-play interface to NexSens iSIC data loggers via RS-485 Modbus digital output. Data collection options include direct-connect, landline phone, cellular, radio, Ethernet, WI-FI, and satellite telemetry. Each iSIC data logger simultaneously supports 8 analog inputs & 4 digital inputs for multi-sensor data logging capability. NexSens iChart Software is a Windows-based program for interfacing both locally (direct-connect) and remotely (through telemetry) to an iSIC data logger or network of data loggers.

What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio. Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay. Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.Read More
As a pro angler, I use my Lowrance electronics every single time I am on the water. They are great at locating fish and structure, but when combined with my FishSens SondeCAM HD Underwater Camera they can show everything. A camera is a great tool for someone who wants to better understand what they are seeing on their electronics and for me, it helps get a clear picture of one of the most important things in bass fishing: bottom composition. Hard Spots Hard bottoms are usually the best, and bass will relate to hard bottoms of different types depending on the region. My Lowrance StructureScan will show hard bottoms as bright, white areas on the screen where softer bottoms will be more grayish.Read More
This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.Read More
