Levelogger Software is Windows® based and provides many convenient features. You can view and program datalogger settings, begin logging sessions, monitor real-time readings, download data, manage data files, perform data compensations, and save and export data files.

Solinst dataloggers can also be used with the Solinst Levelogger App, which shares most of the features of Solinst Levelogger Software, on your smart device. To use the Solinst Levelogger 5 App Interface, see the separate User Guide. Also, see separate instructions for use with the DataGrabber 5 simple USB data transfer device.

A significant physical difference between Levelogger 5 Series of dataloggers compared to all previous versions (including the Edge and Gold Series), is one large optical eye (lens) versus two smaller optical eyes and a connection pin at the communication interface.

Section 2 discusses the different hardware options to communicate with each type of datalogger. Section discusses Direct Read Cable installation options.
