2.3 LevelSender Batteries

A LevelSender 5 uses three 1.5V AA replaceable lithium batteries to operate. Batteries need to be installed before programming.

Note:

Alkaline batteries can also be used, but battery life estimates will be reduced. They may also reduce the operating temperature range.

 

2.3.1 Installing LevelSender Batteries

To install the batteries:

  1. Unscrew the stainless steel cap from the LevelSender to access the battery compartment.
  2. Install the three batteries with the positive ends first/down, in the battery compartment.
  3. Replace the stainless steel cap.

Note:

If you are not using your LevelSender for more than two months, Solinst recommends removing the batteries for long term storage.

Every Hour Every 6 Hours 1 Year 11 Months
Every 15 Minutes Every Hour 2 Months 1.8 Months

Table 2-2 LevelSender Battery Life Estimates

 

Note:

Estimates are based on three 1.5V AA lithium batteries.

Note:

The LevelSender will use battery power each time it samples, reports, and checks for updates. As such, more frequent intervals will drain the battery more quickly.
