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.

In The News
In 2012, for maybe the first time, Lake Superior got scummy.
Visitors to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore reported algae washing up on shore around the park.
It was a marked shift for the park, made up of a portion of the Lake Superior lakeshore and nearby islands. The water surrounding the park is cold, clear and typically low in nutrients: a combination unlikely to result in algal blooms.
But, in 2012 and again in 2018 after violent storms, major algal blooms—ones observed over multiple days—washed ashore and clogged the beaches with unsightly, scummy algae.
Not the usual suspects
The algal blooms of Lake Superior are not the algal blooms of warmer, more nutrient-rich lakes like Lake Erie.Read More
*This is part two of a series on changing ancient lakes. See part one, Lake Baikal, here .
Ancient lakes are facing a suite of rapid, unprecedented anthropogenic changes. While ancient lakes are spread around the world and vary widely from lake to lake, their incredible age, which can reach into the tens of millions of years, makes them unique resources to science.
They host incredible biodiversity and long sediment records. They are vital sources of food and water for millions of people. In a changing world, ancient lakes’ value as scientific and natural resources and the incredibly diverse life they contain is under threat.Read More
*This is part one of a two part story on ancient lakes. Part two , Lake Tanganyika, available here.
Lakes that have supported human settlements for thousands of years are starting to feel humans’ effects in rapidly developing and significant ways.
From climate change to nutrient loading to plastic pollution, ancient lakes are straining under some of the least welcome contributions of humanity. The changes could have consequences for the diversity of life within the lakes and the human populations that rely on it.
And, while ancient lakes have been around long enough to weather past climatic changes, the changes occurring now are so rapid, the end result is uncertain.Read More
