Channel 1 for Leveloggers is the “Level” channel. The channel can be re-named to suit your project.

You can change the units that this channel will be recorded in. For example, there are six unit options when using a Levelogger Edge, Levelogger Junior Edge and LTC Levelogger Edge; m (default), cm, ft, kPa, bar, and psi. When using a Barologger Edge, the options are kPa (default), mbar, and psi.


Tapping on the white input fields will activate the keyboard, or show the scroll wheel to enter the desired settings.

There is the option to include an Offset in Channel 1. Offset refers to an adjustment, such as the distance between the tip of the Levelogger and the monitoring well cap or static water level. It is recommended that the value of 0.00 be used, as this keeps all subsequent readings relative to the tip of the Levelogger. The reference range is -1000 to 16,400 ft or -300 m to 5000 m.

The LTC Levelogger Edge, Levelogger Gold/Barologger Gold, and Levelogger Junior also have inputs for:

Altitude is input in feet or meters above sea level, at which the Solinst datalogger is actually deployed. You can enter an elevation between -1000 ft below sea level and 16,400 ft (or -300 m and 5000 m) above sea level. The readings will then be automatically compensated for elevation.

Density is used to adjust the range of the Levelogger based on the sample fluid density. The range for the density adjustment is from 0.9 kg/L to 1.1 kg/L.


Levelogger Edge, Barologger Edge, Levelogger Junior Edge, LTC Levelogger Edge, LevelVent and AquaVent data can be adjusted for Altitude and Density post data collection using Levelogger PC Software. See Section 10.2 for information on transferring data to your PC.
