SDI-12 data interface hydrostatic water level sensor for monitoring the depth of water in a Class A evaporation pan.
A Class A evaporation pan, also known as a Colorado Sunken Pan or Symon’s Tank, is used in climate, meteorological and environmental monitoring equipment to determine the rate of evaporation at a particular location. By standardising on the dimensions of the pan it is possible to compare measurements from different locations and determine how long water will last. This information is particular useful to farmers who need to determine how much water to apply to crops.
The S12S is a submersible water level sensor with a SDI-12 protocol environmental data interface, and this version has a 0.5 metre depth range which is ideal for measuring level of water in evaporation pans which have a very low height.
