To be at the right place at the right time is a critical success factor. Read the following Tech-Tipp by our flow expert Stefan Siedschlag and learn how to select the best site for you measurement with OTT SLD.
This Tech-Tipp explains how to couple two OTT netDL dataloggers to exchange measured data. This is really helpful in data monitoring or measuring systems with a redundant structure. Coupling of two OTT netDLs can be realized via a direct connection with a crossed Ethernet cable and also via local networks or via the Internet.

In addition to the measured values, images from your measuring site and its surroundings can provide valuable additional information that will help you operate and maintain the station. You can also use such a picture in the field of public relations, if you publish live pictures of different sites on you homepage.
In the current TechTip, you will learn how the solutions are set up with an IP data logger OTT netDL. An example download configuration will help you!
Today, a wide range of government agencies, municipalities, utility companies, and private companies need to monitor water flow in rivers, streams, and canals for a variety of reasons ranging from predicting water availability and flood events to allocating water resources and planning for future development. At a high-level, these organizations are concerned with the water flow and discharge of the surface water in a particular area. More specifically, water discharge, which is the volume of water moving through the cross section of a stream or river during a particular unit of time, is typically computed by multiplying the area of water in a channel cross section by the average velocity of the water in that cross section. This measurement is commonly expressed in cubic feet per second or gallons per day. Discharge measurements also take into account any suspended solids, dissolved chemicals, or biologic materials that are transported in the water through the cross section as well.
This whitepaper will provide a general guide for taking the necessary steps to calculate accurate surface water discharge measurements, including considerations for selecting the most ideal monitoring site, the technologies available for various site conditions, and how to ensure your systems continuously provides accurate data through modern quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) methods.

It’s no secret that pairing telemetry with groundwater sensors saves time and resources from having to manually collect readings in the field. However, groundwater telemetry networks can be limited by the availability of transmission coverage in the area of often remote wells.
OTT Hydromet and Sutron have combined capabilities to offer extremely flexible and comprehensive telemetry options for transmission of groundwater level and quality data via the OTT ecoLog series and by pairing OTT and Hydrolab sensors with the Sutron Well Cap.
Now, you can receive groundwater data via GPRS (like AT&T and T-Mobile), HSPA, and CDMA (like Verizon) cellular protocols as well as the iridium satellite for the most remote locations! Better yet, this data can now be viewed, managed, and analyzed via the SutronWIN data portal and mobile app!
The companies are a natural fit for each other, pairing best-in-class sensors with best-in-class datalogger and telemetry options, and it was evident that as both teams already “speak the same language” in the world of environmental monitoring, that we will immediately be able to begin serving our customers with even greater expertise and complete, end-to-end monitoring solutions.
You can expect many more exciting updates from us in the coming months, just know that we’re truly thrilled for this partnership and expect to delight our customers through our combined offerings for the rest of 2015 and beyond!
Our popular Hydrolab Sonde Survivor Contest has returned in 2015! The Hydrolab Sonde Survivor Contest is a celebration of the harsh and unique deployments that Hydrolab multiparameter instrumentation is put through around the world.
From the first drop of rain to freshwater flowing out to sea, OTT Hydromet has a sensor to measure water at every step in the water cycle. Check out the map below to see our products in action!
The OTT Radar Level Sensor (RLS) is one of our very popular level sensors and used at thousands of surface water sites around the world! Check out our 2-minute video below highlighting the benefits of the sensor and some interesting global applications.
The University of Albany, in partnership with the State of New York, are in the process of constructing the New York State Mesonet, a highly advanced network of weather systems designed to provide real-time weather data and warning systems to citizens of New York in the event of severe weather. The State of New York has had several extreme weather events in recent years, mainly Hurricanes Sandy and Irene, and the Mesonet System will provide improved forecasting and warning systems for future weather events.
There are currently 125 weather stations in the Mesonet network across the state, and many have been equipped with the OTT Pluvio² Weighing Precipitation Gauge for extremely high accuracy precipitation measurement. Check out the video below for an overview of the NYS Mesonet and to see the OTT Pluvio² in action!
