dipperLog 32

dipperlog-32-data-loggerGroundwater Data Logger

The most economical data logger in our lineup, the dipperLog 32 has a maximum storage capcity of 32,000 data points and expected battery life up to 5 years.

The dipperLog 32, only available in a 30m/100ft pressure range, is a reliable solution for short term monitoring of groundwater levels, wetland studies, pump and slug testing.

All Heron loggers are available in various deployment options:

Suspended Version – pull the dipperLog out of the well to download

Direct Read Version – enables you to do real time readings and download your data while the dipperLog is still in the well.

Reel Version – a portable solution, ideal for short term slug and pump testing


The dedicated, intuitive software makes the dipperLog quick and easy to program and launch. Simply recover your data, save your findings in a tabular display and graph, view both parameters side by side in a split screen.

barLog-barometric-loggerThe Heron Instruments barLog, barometric logger is used to automatically compensate readings stored on the dipperLog for changes in barometric pressure. The barLog, with readings every 1 hour and a memory capacity of 32,000 data points,  is recommended for long term monitoring or where more than one logger is deployed withing in a 5 km radius.

“It is the Distributor’s and/or User’s responsibility to ensure chemical, temperature, radiative, and shock compatibility with their site(s) before, during and after deployments. Not doing so will void any and all warranties”

Deployment Options
SuspendedDirect Read
Note:In "Log Time" mode the dipperLog increases the readings from 1 second by an additional 1 second for 255 readings. The final reading interval is 4 min. and 14 sec. and the logger then stops logging. This mode logs for a total of 9 hours before stopping.
Barometric CompensationThe first reading can be used for all readings unless a barLog is used. Automatic compensation when using a designated barLog. Manual compensation in Excel.
Direct Read Cable3.5mm diameter, Polyurethane jacket with 3 Mylar® wrapped, Teflon™ insulated, stranded tinned copper conductors. Woven copper shielding and reinforced, stretch-resistant Kevlar, (Weight 12g/m)

Well-Head-Readout-dipperlog

Well Head Readout Version: Leave in well to read- Direct Read

  • Compatible with dipperLog-SMART Wireless Monitoring System
  • Suitable for long term monitoring with easy access for data download and real time readings
  • Downloading and re-programming can be done without removing the dipperLog from the well

  • Real time readings are not available with this option
  • barLog – recommended for barometric compensation for long term monitoring or where more than one logger is deployed within a 5 km radius

Reel-Version-dipperlog

Reel Version: Portable

  • Easy portability from well to well for short term monitoring or pump testing
  • Downloading and re-programming can be done without removing the logger from the well
  • Real time readings are available with this option

PC Communication Cable - PN# 5009
Software – PN# 5008

This cable is necessary to establish a connection between the software and the dipperLog. It connects via the USB port in your laptop or other field device, enabling you to program, launch and download data with ease. This cable can be connected either directly to the dipperLog, to the well head or to the face of the reel.


barLog – PN# 5116

A barometric logger is used to automatically compensate readings stored on the dipperLog for changes in barometric pressure (for absolute version). The barLog is recommended for long term monitoring or where more than one logger is deployed within a 5 km radius.


tapNtell Surface Mount Display – PN# 5020

The tapNtell is a surface mount weather resistant display accessory for the dipperLog well head readout version. The conical connector end of the tapNtell is attached to the direct read well head and the surface mount display unit can be attached to the side of the casing, fence or pump house (any solid surface). The tapNtell provides an instant real time reading of water level and temperature with a tap of a finger.


showNtell Hand Held Display – PN# 5018

The showNtell is a portable hand held display unit for the dipperLog well head readout version. The showNtell can be carried from well to well, to give an instant real time reading of water level and temperature by simply plugging into the direct read well head. The showNtell does not download or store the data from the logger.


SDI-12 Interface Cable – PN# 5021

The SDI-12 system enables the dipperLog data to be accessed from remote locations by a central computer base without site visits. The sensors can be interchanged without reprogramming the data recorder with calibration or other information. The power is supplied to the sensors through a third party device that enables telemetric data readings.
Operating Voltage (DC) :: 7.5 – 35 VDC
Supply Current (Stand-by) :: 10µA
Supply Current (Active) :: 1.5mA


Lockable Well Caps – Compression – PN# 5007

The Nylon well cap is watertight and tamperproof hinged locking cap, ideal for deploying the well head readout version of a dipperLog in a well.


Plug – PN# 5006

The Nylon expansion cap is a watertight locking plug, ideal for deploying the suspended version of a dipperLog in a well.
