The RILDCX-22 is a stand-alone tool, feed to a battery and made of stainless steel. It is designed to record water depths and temperature over long periods.
Two versions are offered:
RILDCX-22 The sensor, electronics and battery are housed in a sealed stainless steel tube for submersible deployment.
For data read-out the RILDCX-22 must be recovered from the misurament point.
The O-ring sealed end cap is then removed to access the data port. The RILDCX-22 works with an absolute pressure sensor.
In shallow water depths where the influence of barometric pressure changes should be considered, it is recommended that a second data collector RILDCX-22 (Baro) is placed at the surface, to record the barometric pressure.
The PC then calculates the differential pressure resp. the water depth by subtracting the two measured values.
RILDCX-22 SG/VG The sensor is connected by waterproof cable to a surface mounted housing with the data read-out port.
This arrangement allows for easier data recovery from fixed installations. For the reading of data it is not necessary to remove the RILDCX-22 SG/VG from the dip pipe.
The RILDCX-22 SG/VG is supplied with a 2” diameter fixing plate to enable mounting at the top of the dip pipe. The sensor can be sealed gauge SG, or vented gauge VG, the cable carries the vent tube for VG version sensors, vent port in the housing is protected by a breathable Gore-Tex® membrane.
The electronics circuits make use of the latest microprocessor technology providing high accuracy and resolution for the pressure
