If you have a question that’s not listed below, contact our Data Logging Specialists, who will be happy to help you!
In what environment does this data logger operate?
This data logger operates in an underwater environment.
What measurements does this data logger support?
The RX2100-WL data logger supports the following measurements: Absolute Pressure, Barometric Pressure, Evapotranspiration, Leaf Wetness, Light Intensity, PAR, Pulse Input, Rainfall, Relative Humidity, Soil Moisture, Temperature, Water Level and Wind
Can I calculate water flow using the HOBO MicroRX Water Level Station?
Yes, the station is configured with pre-installed calculations for V-notch weirs, general flumes (e.g. Parshall, Ramp, and Cutthroat), and a stage-discharge table.
What alarms are available?
The MicroRX Water Level Station has alarms that trigger for accumulated rainfall and water level/flow at time of measurement.
Can I have more than one accumulated rainfall alarm programmed at the same time?
The RX2100 can only have one accumulated rainfall alarm set up at a time.
Can my data be exported to any hydrology software?
Yes, data can already be used with Network for Environment and Weather Applications (NEWA), DataWise, and the Florida Automated Weather Network (FAWN). Integration with Aquarius is coming soon.
How should I mount the water level sensor?
There are multiple ways to mount the water level sensor.
- Suspend the sensor in a 2” well with a dedicated Onset well cap
- Suspend the sensor in larger wells with a reducer to Onset’s well cap, or your own well cap.
- If mounting in a storm sewer, use a PVC pipe with holes and one end resting on the bottom of the catchment and the top secured to the side of the catchment access.
Do I need a well cap?
A well cap will protect your water level sensor from rainfall and debris. It is uniquely designed to keep the water level sensor cable securely in place, which is especially helpful when using longer cables.
Why would I need an additional solar panel if I choose the integrated solar MicroRX Water Level Station?
You may want an additional solar panel to boost power to ensure connectivity at the maximum 10-minute rate. It may also be a good option if your station is not deployed in full sun.
