Important Information

Requires HOBOware Pro software and either a U-DTW-1 Waterproof Shuttle or the Base-U-4 Optic USB Base Station for configuration and data offload.

Highlighted Features

  • Self-contained non-vented design enables easy deployment
  • Ideal for use in both fresh and saltwater environments, including wells, streams, lakes, wetlands, and tidal areas
  • Depths up to 13 feet
  • Durable ceramic pressure sensor withstands freezing
  • HOBOware Pro software provides easy conversion to accurate water level reading, fully compensated for barometric pressure, temperature, and water density

Note: A calibration certificate is not offered for this logger. If you require a NIST-traceable calibration certificate, please see the U20-001-01 (freshwater) or U20-001-01-Ti (saltwater).
