In-Field Communication

A DataGrabber 5 can be used to transfer data from a Rainlogger 5 to a USB flash drive key. A Levelogger 5 App Interface creates a Bluetooth® connection between the Rainlogger 5 and your smart device running the Solinst Levelogger App, for programming, and e-mailing data.


Standard Deployment

The Rainlogger 5 comes with a Connector Cable, 2 m (6.5 ft.) in length. The Connector Cable has two wires, which are connected to the tipping-bucket cable. For most tipping-bucket models, the wires can be connected to either terminal. Refer to the manufacturer's operating instructions.

The L5 Direct Read Cable connects to an STS, RRL, or LevelSender Telemetry Reader Cable, which is attached to a Remote Telemetry Station.
