Details

The RLS non-contact radar level sensor with pulse radar technology is ideal for monitoring in remote areas and applications where conventional measuring systems are not suitable. The RLS accurately and efficiently measures surface water level With a non-contact distance range of up to 115 feet above water. The sensor is IP67 waterproof and has extremely low power consumption, making it ideal for solar-charged monitoring systems.

The radar level sensor uses a revolutionary level measurement technology, meeting the USGS accuracy requirement of +/-0.01 feet. Two antennas are enclosed in a compact housing and transmit pulses toward the water surface. The time delay from transmission to receipt is proportional to the distance between sensor and water surface. A sampling rate of 16 Hz (16 measurements/second) with 20 second averaging minimizes water surface conditions such as waves and turbulence. The RLS does not require calibration and is unaffected by air temperature, humidity, flood events, floating debris, or contaminated water.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Where should I place my Radar Water Level Sensor?
In order to obtain reliable and correct measurements, you should avoid submerged obstructions and there should be a clear path between the sensor and the water to avoid false reflections. There is a full list of helpful site selection tips under the Documents Tab.
What maintenance do I need to preform to keep my Radar Water Level Sensor clean?
The OTT RLS sensor does not require calibration and there are no parts that need regular replacing. To maintain your sensor be sure to: check for dirt, obstructions in the measurement beam, and plausibility of the measured values. To clean your sensor, use commercial, gentle and non-erasing cleaners with a soft sponge.
My sensor is not responding to the SDI-12 Interface, what should I check?
There are a few possibilities when having trouble with the SDI-12 interface. First, check the fuse in the power supply. If that is working, the power supply may be too low or too high. You should be using 12/24V. If your voltage is correct, make sure you are using DC (direct current).

Colorado River Fish Contain Levels Of Selenium, Mercury

Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.

Heron dipper-Tough Is Ready For Harsh Deployments

For all the straightforward groundwater monitoring applications that the folks at Heron Instruments help with, there are a few that are far from typical. These include projects that take place near remediation sites or not far from waste disposal operations. Realizing that customers working in those sorts of projects are in need of a more robust option, the company has released the dipper-Tough . The new water level meter takes inspiration from Heron’s popular dipper-T , while throwing in a host of improvements that environmental pros working in groundwater can really appreciate.

Cellular Data Buoy Supports Lake Erie Algae Research, Public Outreach

Scientists at Ohio State University are at the fore of the fight against harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie. In fact, they deployed a new cellular data buoy off the shore of Gibraltar Island in 2014, months before the Toledo Water Crisis spurred a boom in monitoring platforms around the lake. That was in part because researchers at the university’s Stone Laboratory, backed by Ohio Sea Grant and housed on Gibraltar, had been seeing a resurgence of blooms in the lake long before international attention came around following the crisis. There was an opportunity, they saw, to continue advancing the mission of research, education and outreach on Lake Erie. The cellular data buoy complimented that in a great way.
