Solinst Model 101 Power Winder
- Effortlessly winds longer lengths of tape, cable or tubing on a Solinst reel
- Operates using a standard power drill or driver
- Easy-to-adjust telescoping arms to suit small, medium, and large Solinst reels
The Solinst Model 101 Power Winder is lightweight, easy to attach to the frame of any size Solinst reel-mounted device, and designed to allow ease of use when deploying longer lengths of tape. The convenient Power Winder features adjustable arms and rollers to suit different size reels, as well as other types of Water Level Meters in the market.
A standard drill or driver is used to provide power to the Power Winder, which turns the rollers that are in contact with the reel. The drill can be operated at various speeds, in forward and reverse, to turn the reel and unwind and rewind the tape.
The Power Winder is ideal for use with Solinst Water Level Measurement Devices, but can also be used with Solinst Tag Lines or pump tubing reels, such as the Model 425 Discrete Interval Samplers. Reels using the Power Winder can be placed on the ground, on a Solinst Field Table, or other flat surface. Small reels can also be secured to a well casing using a tape guide or the optional cinch straps.

The value of multi-lake studies is well understood by international organizations like the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) and the scientists who work tirelessly to provide data to the larger network. Rebecca North, an associate professor at the University of Missouri-Columbia , is one of many researchers involved in multi-lake research initiatives and conducting research locally in her home state.
Having been born and raised on the shore of Lake Ontario, North grew up in a community that revolved around water. She also saw firsthand one of the worst water quality bodies of the world, the Bay of Quinte, decline throughout her lifetime.Read More
It is no secret that in today's world, most scientists do not stick exclusively to science–they must be educators, communicators, and advocates. The looming threats facing the planet's climate and the growing distrust in science by the public have forced scientists to expand and improve their capacity for science communication to the world.
From repeatedly testifying before the U.S. Congress to winning an Emmy as the Chief Scientific Advisor for an award-winning nature documentary, marine ecologist James W. Porter has been thrust into the public eye.Read More
Historically, water quality monitoring during the winter has been difficult and often avoided altogether—however, monitoring throughout the year can highlight the influence of various environmental stressors and track the changes systems undergo during the winter. In particular, long-term monitoring efforts in systems like Mohonk Lake can underline the effects of climate change and acid rain.
David Richardson, a professor of biology at the State University of New York (SUNY) at New Paltz , spends his time outside of the classroom monitoring the nearby watersheds. After getting his engineering undergraduate degree, Richardson realized he wasn't interested in the typical job offerings and applied to an ecological science graduate program at the University of Maryland.Read More
