The PT-500 is a rugged submersible pressure transmitter designed for highly accurate water level measurement in streams, lakes, rivers, and other water bodies.
The APG PT-500 submersible pressure transducer 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 sensor features a plug-and-play interface to NexSens iSIC data loggers via RS-485 Modbus digital output. Data collection options include direct-connect, landline phone, cellular, radio, Ethernet, WI-FI, and satellite telemetry. Each iSIC data logger simultaneously supports 8 analog inputs & 4 digital inputs for multi-sensor data logging capability. NexSens iChart Software is a Windows-based program for interfacing both locally (direct-connect) and remotely (through telemetry) to an iSIC data logger or network of data loggers.

This year land dwellers everywhere can catch some crisp, detailed images of a rarely seen deep-sea jellyfish, Deepstaria enigmatica , with nothing more than an internet connection. City University of New York (CUNY) professor Dr. David Gruber and a research team caught their surprise encounter with the Deepstaria off the coast of Mexico with the help of a specially designed underwater camera.
“We were not looking for Deepstaria enigmatica . Deepstaria enigmatica found us!” exclaims Dr. Gruber. “On most deep-sea explorations, we are usually the first people to view the dark, submerged seascapes. Our planet is 71% covered by oceans, that's, on average, over 12,000 feet deep.Read More
Winner of a 5 th National Gold Medal Award for Excellence in the Field of Park and Recreation Management, Cleveland Metroparks is known for its 23,000 acres that include eighteen reservations, hundreds of miles of trails, eight golf courses, two lakefront parks and a zoo. While much effort has been put into conserving pristine natural areas, a lot of work has also gone into improving the nexus of animal and human habitats. Cleveland Metroparks (CMP) manages thousands of acres of wetlands, streams and forests in an effort to protect urban watersheds and maintain the buffer between human and wildlife dwellings.Read More
The National Park Service (NPS) has been fighting an invasion for more than 20 years: the invasion of Yellowstone Lake by lake trout. This invasive species has been hurting the lake's ecosystem, threatening the survival of native species such as Yellowstone cutthroat trout and the overall health of the lake . As lake trout outcompete the easier-to-catch cutthroat trout, bird populations surrounding the lake diminish, and even grizzly bears in the area resort to other food supplies.
The lake trout is a wily predator, sometimes consuming young cutthroat trout. However, it's also a cunning prey animal; it's difficult for other predators to catch lake trout, in large part because they spend most of their lives in deep, murky waters.Read More
