¬Water Level Monitoring Using a Druck Depth/Level Sensor

In this Tech Article from CAS DataLoggers and dataTaker, we describe the process of connecting the Druck PTX 1830 depth/level sensor to a dataTaker DT8x series data logger. These two components can function as a water level monitoring logger and record depth measurements. The Druck sensor outputs a 4-20mA signal and can be powered by the dataTaker’s switchable 12V regulated voltage output.

Equipment required:

• dataTaker DT8x data logger
• Druck PTX 1830 depth sensor
• Wire
1. Connecting the sensor:

Connect the wires from the sensor to the datalogger as follows:

• Red Wire--12V terminal
• Blue Wire—Channel 1 # terminal
• Connect a wire between DGND and EXT# terminals
2. Taking measurements:

2.1 Basic measurement:

The basic measurement outputs a scaled output. Using the built-in dataTaker dEX software, the code is as simple as this:

S1=0,10"m" 'scale a 4-20mA reading to a 0-10m value

1SSPWR=1 'turn on the 12V output

1#L("depth~m",S1) 'sample, scale and log depth

2.2 Full Program:

The full dataTaker dEX program samples the sensor once per hour and stores it to the datalogger internal memory.

BEGIN "PTX1830"

'Sample program Level sensor PTX 1830 (4-20mA)

'Sampling period: 1 sample / hour

S1=0,10"m" 'set scale of 4-20mA sensor

LOGON

'====================================================

' Schedule A

' - Logs to the internal memory (B:)

' - Logs up to 3MB of data records, overwrites when full

' - Runs every 1 hour

'====================================================

RA("B:",DATA:OV:3MB)1H

'control power and sample from the sensor

1SSPWR(W)=1 1#L("2-Minute Depth~m",S1,MD5000,FF3) 1SSPWR(W)=0

END

Using the dEX graphical configuration software, built into every dataTaker, you can configure the same operation with a few mouse clicks and entering a few numbers.

DataTaker Series 4 Loggers:

The renowned dataTaker Series 4 Dataloggers can connect to nearly every sensor type, scaling and logging almost any physical value including Temperature, Voltage/Current, 4-20mA loops, Resistance, Strain gauges, Frequency, and more. They also provide a wide array of communications features including USB, Ethernet, MODbus and SDI-12. dataTaker loggers also feature a USB memory stick port to give you simple access to the stored data when no communications options exist.

dataTaker’s dEX software is preinstalled with all dataTaker dataloggers and has a browser accessed graphical interface allowing quick setup and configuration of the logger. This software is configured and run directly from a web browser enabling access either locally or remotely over the Internet. Operators can use either USB or Ethernet to connect to the datalogger and access the dEX application.
