Traceable calibration of pressure based water level data loggers
AbstractThis paper investigates accuracy, influence of temperature variations and time drift of water level data loggers, operating on a principle of hydrostatic pressure measurement. The laboratory setup for calibration of such devices, equipped with self-designed pressure chamber and commercial climatic chamber is presented. Calibration procedure for logger’s built-in pressure transducer, with ensured traceability to the primary standards of pressure and temperature, is proposed. Influence of temperature on the pressure reading was examined by conducting calibration at 10 °C, 15 °C and 25 °C.
