OTT ecoLog 1000 Now with Conductivity Measuring Capabilities

OTT Hydromet has launched a new variant of the OTT ecoLog 1000, an all-in-one instrument with a water level sensor, logger, and cellular modem built in. The new variant is equipped with a rugged and accurate, 4-electrode conductivity measuring cell allowing the user to measure water level, temperature, and conductivity.
OTT HydroMet has a reputable track record of designing instrumentation for water level, conductivity, and water temperature all in one device, with examples like the OTT PLS-C, pressure level sensor with conductivity and OTT ecoLog 800.
The ability to continuously measure conductivity gives insight into how varying environmental factors may be influencing water quality at monitoring sites. Water conductivity data can be used to identify the presence of dissolved minerals or ions, such as salt, in a system. With this knowledge, users can determine the potential uses of their water for drinking or irrigation and monitor overall aquifer health.
Conductivity data is fundamental to the derived water quality parameters of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and salinity. With the new variant, awareness is gained surrounding events like saltwater intrusion and other environmental impacts.
All variants of the OTT ecoLog 1000 are simple to operate using a smart phone, tablet or PC through LinkComm operating software via integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for local communication. LinkComm enables intuitive device set-up and configuration changes in the field and a simple step-by-step interface for calibrating the optional conductivity cell. The integrated cellular modem supports near real-time data visibility and remote station configuration changes to avoid unnecessary, expensive trips to measurement sites. 
“The new capability of the OTT ecoLog 1000 to measure conductivity opens a world of possibility for users looking to remotely monitor basic water quality parameters at select sites in their network. The compact design of the instrument with an integrated cell modem makes installation quick and maintenance minimal.” - Greg Koch, Global Product Manager, Hydrology.
