MODEL 5390WL : Wireless Lynx
The HydroLynx Model 5390WL Wireless Lynx option uses direct sequence spread spectrum
radio telemetry to transmit data from a sensor to the 50386 Data Transmitter. This
allows a sensor to be used at a location that is not practical for a wired sensor.
The option includes two Wireless Lynx Radios, sensor upgrade to a SDI-12 pressure
transducer, an upgrade to a 600 mA solar panel at the 5390 station site, a 600 mA
solar panel and 18 AH battery at the sensor site. The sensor site configuration can
be changed depending on the installation requirement. Consult with a HydroLynx salesperson
to discuss the available installation options.
Since ALERT systems rely on radio data telemetry, the best hydrologic site is not
always a good ALERT site due to radio path problems; or due to the cost of trenching
from the sensor site to the remote site standpipe; or even due to conflicts with
other ALERT criteria. The 5390WL provides the ALERT user the flexibility required
to install a sensor at the best hydrologic site while maximizing the remote site
standpipe location for radio path or other ALERT criteria.
