Global Water’s PL200-G Water Pressure Datalogger makes it easy for you to verify low water pressure complaints, locate water pressure spikes, and even provide data for water distribution system modeling. With its standard ¾" garden hose connection and compact, water-resistant enclosure, you can use the PL200-G to record water pressure data just about anywhere.
The unit’s massive memory buffer will store over 81,000 readings, with user-defined intervals from 1 per second to more than 1 per year. You can easily capture momentary pressure spikes and dips with the PL200-G’s fast, 10 water pressure samples per second sampling mode. You can also use the unit’s programmable start and stop alarm times to synchronize multiple PL200-G’s to start at the same
time, delay starting until a preset time, or limit the number of recordings during a day.
The unit operates on two standard 9 volt batteries, which it monitors so you will not be caught off guard with dead batteries. Data is stored in nonvolatile flash memory so your water pressure data will be safe.
The PL200-G is equipped with a standard USB data port and includes our user friendly Global Logger II Windows software, which allows for easy setup, calibration, upload, and data transfer to a spreadsheet program on your laptop or desktop PC. The Global Logger II software also has online help files that are easily accessed using drop down menus and links so that you can quickly find the answers
to your questions.

The Charles River used to be a swimming hotspot for Cambridge and Boston residents.
Decades of industrial pollution and nutrient runoff have degraded water quality and eliminated public swimming in the Lower Charles, but a movement is afoot to get Boston and Cambridge back in the water. One step toward the goal of a safely swimmable river—without the need to obtain a permit, as is now necessary—is detecting and managing the harmful algal blooms that appear on the river.
An experimental floating wetland and new research and analysis of water quality data that shows a possible effective detection system for algal blooms on the Charles River are two new steps toward the goal of safe, accessible swimming.Read More
The Gulf Stream, the massive western boundary current off the east coast of North America, moves water from the Gulf of Mexico north and west across the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a lot of energy in that much moving water and researchers are trying to put it to use.
Although the Gulf Stream’s path shifts (researchers say it acts like a wiggling garden hose), in a couple of spots, it stays relatively stable. At one such spot off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, researchers have dropped moorings and research instruments to study the current with the eventual goal of harnessing it for renewable energy.Read More
In early 2020, Michigan found itself facing one of the worst outbreaks of Covid-19 in the country. Though it’s close to second nature now, businesses, schools and governments were suddenly forced to conduct business without close contact. Universities and research institutions had to pause some scientific research. Whatever was able to continue slowed to a crawl.
Around the Great Lakes, a network of buoys monitors dozens of water quality parameters and lake conditions, reporting them in real time. This year, the monitoring season was cut a bit short as Covid-19 restrictions hit in the weeks before buoys were set to be deployed.Read More
