Solinst Rainlogger 5 Rain Gauge Data Logger
The Solinst Rainlogger 5 is an inexpensive datalogger designed to record the tips of a standard tipping bucket rain gauge with a reed switch output.
- Single-eye optical interface that is easy to clean and more scratch-resistant
- Increased memory: 150,000 sets of data
- Double o-ring seals for increased leakage protection
The Rainlogger 5 is an inexpensive datalogger designed to record the tips of a standard tipping-bucket rain gauge. This compact and durable field unit offers long-term reliability and convenience with a battery that lasts up to 10 years and ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection with an ABS housing. The event timestamp and total rainfall per period is logged in non-volatile memory, which holds up to 100,000 readings. Sampling is event-based, as the Rainlogger 5 records and saves each tip of the tipping bucket as it happens.
Intuitive Levelogger Software
Levelogger customers can add rainfall data to their water level monitoring networks using the intuitive Levelogger Software. The Rainlogger 5 provides easy incorporation of precipitation data into existing Levelogger data. Rainfall data can correlate precipitation events and changes in groundwater or surface water levels. The Rainlogger 5 is compatible with all Solinst Levelogger 5 communication and deployment accessories. Logged data can be downloaded directly to a PC, using the Solinst Levelogger App, or a DataGrabber 5 data transfer device.
The Rainlogger 5 is simply programmed with the user-friendly Levelogger Software. A Field Reader 5 or Desktop Reader 5 connects the Rainlogger 5 to a laptop or desktop PC, and the Levelogger Software automatically detects the attached Rainlogger. The Rainlogger 5 is easily deployed in the field, using a 3-pin connector cable attached to the rain gauge. Data downloading can be "All Data," "Append Data," or "Data Dump" at any time. Data can be displayed in graph or table format and exported to other programs. The Rainlogger 5 has self-test capability, reliable memory and the ability to upgrade firmware.

In The News
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
