Model 102 Laser Marked Water Level Indicator

The Solinst Model 102 Water Level Indicator is designed to measure groundwater levels, especially in small diameter tubes and piezometers, or where a flexible assembly is needed to get past down hole instrumentation.

Also available from Solinst, are the Model 101 Water Level Meter and 101B Water Level Meters, which feature easy-to-read, easily repaired flat tape. (See Model 101 Water Level Meter Data Sheets).


Operating Principles

The Model 102 Water Level Meter uses a choice of two small diameter probe designs, attached to a narrow coaxial cable, fitted on a sturdy ergonomically designed reel. A standard 9 volt battery, housed in an easy-access battery drawer, powers the Water Level Meter.

When the probe enters water the electrical circuit is completed, sending a signal back to the reel where a light and clearly audible buzzer are activated. The water level is then determined by taking a reading directly from the cable at the top of the well casing or borehole.

A sensitivity control allows the buzzer to be scaled back or turned off while in cascading water, and ensures a clear signal in both high and low conductivity conditions.


Laser Marked Cable

The coaxial cable has a durable polyurethane jacket with permanent markings precisely laser etched on the cable each millimeter or every 1/100 ft.

The cable reels smoothly, remains flexible, and comes in lengths from 30 m – 300 m (100 ft – 1000 ft).

A braided copper outer conductor gives flexibility and a stranded stainless steel central conductor gives strength. It is easy to repair and splice.
