Robust, reliable and accurate: Using a high-performance, durable, and brushless small compressor, the air is forced at adjustable measuring intervals into the water via a tube. The pressure generated in the transmission line corresponds exactly to the hydrostatic pressure over the outlet nozzle. This is measured using a ceramic pressure measuring cell in the PS Light-2. Prior to each measurement, sensor drift compensation occurs. PS-Light-2 is as precise after many years of operation as on day one.
Maintenance-free: The measuring cell of the PS-Light-2 does not come directly into contact with the measured medium and therefore does not have to be cleaned regularly of deposits (e.g. lime).
Safe: Since, as is generally known, the air is not conductive, elaborate electronic overvoltage protection can be dispensed with.
Self-sufficient: PS-Light-2 engages in a continuous measurement operation and can easily be autonomously supplied with solar panels (e.g. 50 W panel, at 5-minute measuring interval, and 1/4 hourly transmission).
Last but not least: The measurement system is available in several versions PS-Light-2 sensor with or without an LCD, PS-Light-2-LCD with an integrated data collector, and as a compact data transferring station PS-Light-2-Modem (including remote data transmission).
