Level of water is measured by a vented strain gauge. A differential strain gauge transducer measures pressure with one side of the transducer exposed to the water and the other side vented to the atmosphere. The transducer measures only the pressure exerted by the water column, and does not factor in atmospheric pressure.
Xylem Analytics measures the level of water with WaterLOG (YSI), Global Water and MJK instruments. We take pride in providing a broad range of innovative equipment capable of reliable measurements in extremely harsh conditions.
Monitoring water level is a vital part in maintaining water rights, preserving natural habitats, and protecting communities. We understand the challenges of working in natural environments. With water level data, we can obtain a greater understanding of environmental changes, provide early warning and take action when quick decision making is needed.
