The Global Water GL500 multi-channel data logger features 7 analog channels and 2 digital channels for data recording. The GL500 can record over 40,000 readings and has four unique recording options, fast (10 samples per second), programmable interval (1 second to multiple years), logarithmic, and exception. The data logger also has a sample on demand input that triggers a recording of special events, such as when a water sampler was triggered, when a door was opened, etc. Daily start and stop alarm times can be programmed to limit recording intervals during a day. The GL500 includes Windows software, allowing easy upload of data to a laptop or desktop.

An optional version with integrated Bluetooth 2.0 allows users to access data and settings without the use of a custom connection cable. Using a laptop or desktop computer with Bluetooth capability, the data logger's data and settings can be viewed, stored and programmed using the Global Logger II desktop software package, as well as the Flow Monitor software. All of the features in these data logger software packages are available using the Bluetooth interface. Because the Bluetooth module draws power when turned on, the data logger features a power switch to turn it off when not in use.  A red LED indicates when the data logger's Bluetooth module is on and a blue LED shows the status of the Bluetooth connection.

The GL500 data logger is setup to accept any 4-20mA sensor and provides switched power to the sensors based on the sample interval and sensor warm up time settings. Twisted pair 2-wire and 3-wire sensors can be quickly connected to the data logger's terminal strip and calibrated via the Global data logger software. Sensors can be accessed through dial-out to a remote modem attached to the GL500's serial communication port. The data logger software has online help files that are easily accessed using drop down menus and links to quickly find the answers to questions.

PME miniDOT Logger: Plunge into Data

The PME miniDOT Logger is a compact data logger that measures dissolved oxygen (DO) and temperature down to 100 meters in depth. The unit can also endure low water temperatures and is durable underneath an ice layer, which is excellent for gathering essential winter water quality data that is lacking from using less robust equipment. The high depth rating and ability to withstand frigid temperatures make the PME a reliable device that is deployable in dramatically different environments, such as a monitoring well, an inland lake or an underwater cave. The logger itself features an optical DO sensor, temperature sensor, two AA lithium batteries and a micro SD memory card.

The Water of Life: How Understanding Natural Hydrologic Processes in Aquatic Ecosystems Can Lead to a Sustainable Future

From watersheds that provide drinking water, the rain that nourishes plants, to the streams and rivers that help aquatic ecosystems flourish, water is an ever-present and ever-essential part of life. For those like Durelle Scott, a professor of Biological Systems Engineering at Virginia Tech University, understanding the importance of these natural systems was always a part of life. The desire to preserve the nation's aquatic resources stems from a childhood spent exploring the lakes and streams that surrounded him growing up in rural Pennsylvania. Now, as a teacher and a researcher, Scott makes it a priority to ensure that people now and in the future appreciate the enormous impact that aquatic ecosystems have on their lives. “I would say that water connects us all.

Lufft WS800: Introducing A Station that Can Weather the Storm

The Lufft WS800 Multi-Parameter Weather Station measures a full suite of atmospheric parameters that provides all-encompassing data on the local environment, including a one-of-a-kind lightning detector. This compact, cost-effective sensor simultaneously measures air temperature, humidity, pressure, precipitation, solar radiation, lightning, and wind with an integrated electronic compass. An internal fan and heater reduce the effects of external influences for accurate measurements during long-term deployments. The sensor can be easily mounted on a 2-inch diameter pipe above any local obstructions with the included bracket mount, U-bolts, and 10-meter cable.  Settings for the unit can be adjusted using the latest UMB-ConfigTool.
