4.3 Assign Dataloggers to Remote Station

The Datalogger Setup window allows you to enter the type of datalogger that will be connected to each of the four positions on the STS Telemetry System. After selecting the datalogger type from the drop down menu, an image of the selected datalogger will be displayed.


The firmware versions shown in red for each Levelogger are the Firmware Versions that will work with the current Solinst Telemetry Software version.

If there are not four dataloggers connected, select NONE from the drop-down menu for each of the positions with no datalogger connected. System initialization will not be successful if a datalogger type is selected, but is not physically attached.

To optionally set each datalogger to record in their internal memory, select Logger Settings to begin entering data collection information.


Dataloggers programmed to record and store readings in their internal, non-volatile memory, provide reliable back-up data. This will, however, cause their internal battery to be used up more quickly.

You must program a Rainlogger in order to enter a Rainfall Calibration Constant (the amount of rainfall per tip of the connected rain gauge), but you do not have to set it to record independently.

Select Next, without entering any Logger Settings, if you do not want to set your dataloggers to record independently.
