Wellntel Matches Pressure Transducer Performance

Resulting comparison between Wellntel and Pressure Transducer shows very high correlation between instruments

In a side-by-side comparison with a combination pressure transducer and barometric pressure logger, Wellntel has shown that with proper calibration and “benchmarking,” Wellntel will deliver accuracy and precision on par with much more expensive and complicated instruments. Here are the results of a three-month study conducted by members of the South Benton County Community Groundwater Network,… Read more »

Wellntel Announces Sensor Firmware V2 (SV2)

Today, Wellntel is announcing Wellntel Sensor Firmware V2 (SV2). This new firmware is important in two ways: 1.) It substantially improves the ability of an out-of-the-box sensor to find and track groundwater levels with little or no calibration in a wide range of physical and acoustic well conditions, and when situations in the field change. Therefore, it simplifies start-up, improves… Read more »

How Wellntel is fueling a #groundwaterinformationrevolution

Wellntel: a whole new ballgame

Until Wellntel, anyone wanting to know about groundwater depended on a limited array of complex or cumbersome tools to find groundwater or well water levels. The least expensive, but most cumbersome, is demonstrated here: Tapes, loggers and transducers all require an open well and an expert on site. They are expensive to buy and use. So they… Read more »

V2 Sensors: like shiny, smart jewels

Wellntel Sensor Probe V2

Earlier this week, Wellntel began shipping a newly-engineered Sensor design so gorgeous that one might confuse the probe for a high-end piece of jewelry. Not to be mistaken for a set of earrings or a broach, however, the Wellntel V2 sensor includes three major updates: Improved signal quality, speeding calibration and tighter out-of-the-box sensor accuracy Higher grade stainless to last longer in harsh… Read more »

Seeing something odd in your Wellntel groundwater data?

Wellntel owners play a key role in helping Wellntel’s technology to get smarter and more accurate. If, for example, you see a reading in your groundwater level chart that just doesn’t seem right — it looks to be outside of a trend or indicates a measurement that seems illogical (as with the measurement highlighted below)… Read more »
