The Well Watch Solar Power Kit offers a solution to any of our users who choose to operate off the grid, need to monitor in remote locations or don't have easily accessible AC power.
The Well Watch Solar Power Kit offers a solution to any of our users who choose to operate off the grid, need to monitor in remote locations or don't have easily accessible AC power. The system works best with 6 hours of peak sun per day but has enough reserve to operate the Well Watch on continuous logging for over a week with no sun. The log rate can be changed to lengthen the reserve time to last through a few weeks of cloudy weather.
The Solar Power Kit is compact and easily pole mounted with the included mounting bracket system. The enclosures are sealed and weatherproof. For added security they can accept a padlock or tamper seal.
Each kit includes: Solar panel, Die cast enclosure, pole/wall mounting kit with mounting plate, Cable assembly to connect battery to controller, Battery charging controller, 12V battery and Outdoor rated cable assembly to connect solar panel to controller.

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
The Spring 2017 Environmental Monitor is on the way to subscribers this month. Our quarterly print editions feature the best of the Monitor's coverage from the past few months with added photos, graphics, updates and the latest monitoring gear.
