The In-Situ Con TROLL PRO Process Monitor is a process controller, local display, logging device, and instrument interface for In-Situ water quality & level sensors.
Designed for use with In-Situ water quality and water level sensors, the In-Situ Con TROLL PRO Process Monitor provides real-time data and integrates easily with SCADA and PLC systems. The Con TROLL PRO also operates as a standalone unit for field monitoring applications.
The In-Situ Con TROLL PRO Process Monitor can display and report multiple parameters from up to two In-Situ sensors, including the RDO PRO; Level TROLL 200, 300, 500, and 700; and Aqua TROLL 100, 200 and 400. Users can quickly access and download data via Bluetooth wireless technology and a RuggedReader handheld PC or laptop.
The In-Situ Con TROLL PRO Process Monitor automatically measures & compensates for barometric pressure and ambient temperature. When used in combination with the RDO PRO and Aqua TROLL instrument, the Con TROLL PRO will log salinity compensated DO readings, thus achieving the most accurate results.
AC models are available with or without logging and include two low-voltage relays and two high-voltage relays. Relays can be used to trigger alarms, warning lights, pumps, gates, or other process control devices. DC models offer logging, two low-voltage relays, and flexible power supply options. Both AC and DC units offer power saving modes, Modbus/RS485 communication protocol, automatic sensor recognition, and two isolated 4-20 mA current loops.
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
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
