Designed for environmental and watershed management applications by Pressure Systems
Pressure Systems, manufacturer of precision level and pressure instrumentation for environmental water usage and water resource applications, introduced TruBlue, a new line of submersible transducers that measure water level and water quality, and offer more memory and a longer battery lifespan. Featuring an advanced, power-conserving microprocessor technology, the TruBlue 555 Level is part of the new TruBlue line specifically designed for long-term measurement of water levels in environmental and watershed management applications including groundwater, surface water, canal and harbor monitoring, according to the company.
With an internal memory of 8 MB, TruBlue 555 Level transducer is capable of storing up to 550,000 level and temperature measurements. Its internal 3.6 V lithium battery, with onboard surge protection, has a lifespan of five years based on four readings per hour, making the transducer ideal for remote environmental data collection and process monitoring. In addition, the new unit provides an accuracy of +0.1% FS total error band, which includes changes in temperature within the compensated temperature range. The transducer has an RS-485 electrical interface.
The transducer is shipped with TruWare, Pressure Systems' software created specifically for the TruBlue line. Users are able to graph and export data using this new software and easily manage their data, the company said. The software is available for both PC and mobile applications.
The TruBlue 555 Level transducer sampling modes include linear, linear averaging and event, with programmable sampling rates of up to five readings per second.
The new transducer is available in full scale water level ranges from 0 to 11.5 ft. to 0 to 658 ft. (from 5 to 300 psi). The ¾-in. diameter unit comes in welded 316 SS or titanium, making it ideal for a variety of applications including brackish and seawater. The operating temperature range is 0°C to 50°C (32°F to 122°F).
The new TruBlue 555 Level transducer has a two-year warranty and comes standard with a calibration report.
Pricing for a TruBlue 555 Level starts at $995.
