The DataGrabber connects to a Levelogger’s Direct Read Cable; alternatively, a Direct Read to Optical Adaptor allows users to connect it directly to a Levelogger’s optical end. The USB flash drive is plugged into the socket on the front of the DataGrabber.
A push-button on the DataGrabber starts the downloading process. All of the data in the Levelogger’s memory is transferred to the USB device. The DataGrabber comes with a 512 Mb USB flash drive; it is also compatible with most other USB flash drives. The Levelogger is not interrupted if it is still logging. The data in the Levelogger memory is not erased. A light changes color to indicate when the DataGrabber is properly connected, when the data transfer is taking place, and when the data has been successfully downloaded. The DataGrabber uses one 9 volt alkaline or lithium battery that is easy to replace when required.
In The News
Solinst has debuted a new device for environmental pros who need a simple and easy way to transfer data from Solinst Leveloggers. Called the DataGrabber Data Transfer Device , it is a robust and straightforward piece of tech that does what it’s supposed to do without hassle.
Like the name suggests, the DataGrabber takes data off Solinst Leveloggers and transfers them via USB to memory sticks of any make. It is an alternative to the company’s App Interface device that can gather data and send them to mobile devices via Bluetooth. What sets the DataGrabber apart is that it utilizes a direct connection to make transfers and is well suited for long-term projects involving stationary Leveloggers and routine site visits.Read More
Is eradicating Great Lakes sea lamprey an “impossible dream?” Researchers say no
The sea lamprey’s days in the Great Lakes could be numbered.
That’s according to one researcher who took one of the first scientific looks at the possibility of sea lamprey eradication in the Great Lakes.
So, can you remove enough sea lamprey to make them disappear?
“Well the answer is we already have,” said Michael Jones, emeritus professor of fisheries and wildlife at Michigan State University. “Then there’s the obvious question: Why are they still here?”
While multiple gaps in current management techniques, like sea lamprey poisons called lampricides, could account for sea lamprey’s persistence in the Great Lakes, new technology could help sea lamprey managers eliminate inaccessible populations.Read More
The Shasta crayfish and signal crayfish are two similar looking arthropods on two very different ecological trajectories. As one spreads in abundance, originating in the Pacific Northwest and spreading throughout the world, the other has been reduced to a handful of remaining populations spread throughout one river and its tributaries.
Pacifastacus leniusculus - the signal crayfish - has met few obstacles in its widely successful expansion from the Pacific Northwest southward in California and Nevada, as well as Europe and Japan. By some expert accounts, it has reached invader status. And while invasive species are rarely good for the surrounding food webs, it’s Pacifastacus fortis - the Shasta crayfish - that’s suffered the most at the signal crayfish’s fortune.Read More
