If the AquaVent logger has been programmed to record on its own independent schedule, data can be downloaded from the AquaVent using a laptop and USB Connector Cable in the field (see Figure 3-1). Temporarily disconnect the AquaVent from the SDI-12 Connector Cable, preferably in between recordings by the SDI-12 master. Connect a laptop and download the independently recorded data.
Other downloading options are available using the Solinst Levelogger App and DataGrabber. See separate operating instructions.
If the AquaVent is disconnected from the SDI-12 network, and the SDI-12 master tries to communicate with the AquaVent, the SDI-12 master and the rest of the sensors in the network are not disrupted.
After the data download is complete, the AquaVent is easily connected back into the SDI-12 network without disruption. The AquaVent is automatically verified when reconnected (see Section 4.2).
