Details

The PT-500 vented water level sensor 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 PT-500-UW features a plug-and-play interface to NexSens X2/G2 data loggers via the installed UW connector. The thread-in connector screws into the logger to reduce setup complexity and reduce the chance for errors. The specially designed UW connector features a field wireable design that provides the ability to cut and re-wire the cable to a specific length on-site. The cable is vented in the UW connector using a Gortex vent located on the side of the body.

Data Buoys Study Turbid Water Environments in Lake Erie Basin

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.

Bottom Composition Matters, Underwater Cameras Can Help

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.

Targeting Spawning Bass: Are They Going to Bite?

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.
