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.
The White River looms large in Indianapolis, with some stretches spanning more than 500 feet wide where it runs through downtown. But the river has historically received more sewage than respect. But, like many urban rivers, the White River is in the midst of a slow recovery from decades of neglect and abuse. Between a massive $2 billion sewer improvement project to new funding for programs to educate people about the river and get them on the water, the recovery could hasten as momentum builds behind the idea that a healthy, accessible White River would enrich the city and its citizens. Behind that work, a growing number of water quality monitoring programs will help track improvements on the river and catch any emerging pollution concerns.Read More
Much of the American west depends upon groundwater for its survival. Originally the region was sustainably settled and farmed by Native American tribes. Eventually, new settlers without those abilities came west and resettled in a sort of patchwork; newcomers chose to stay near springs and other places where exploitable groundwater was close to the surface. In time, technologies developed enough for deeper wells to be drilled and groundwater to be pumped. This made the high level of development that is now present in places like Los Angeles and Phoenix possible. However, it proceeded without any detailed understanding of the groundwater recharge process in the area.Read More

(Courtesy: NASA/JPL-Caltech.)[/caption] El Niño and La Niña are recurrent warming and cooling patterns in the tropical Pacific Ocean that affect weather patterns around the world. While El Niño tends to spring up due to a random wind change in the tropical Pacific, La Niña often follows on El Niño’s heels, cooling the tropical Pacific Ocean, causing drought conditions across the southern tier of the US. How long drought will persist due to La Niña is an important question for every community that suffers from extremely dry conditions.Read More
