With an internal memory of 8 MB, TruBlue 555 Level transducer is capable of storing up to 550,000 level and temperature measurements. Its internal 3.6 V lithium battery, with on-board surge protection, has a lifespan of five years based on 4 readings/hour making the transducer ideal for remote environmental data collection and process monitoring. In addition, the new unit provides an accuracy of +/-0.1% FS total error band which includes changes in temperature within the compensated temperature range. The transducer has an RS-485 electrical interface.

The TruBlue 555 Level transducer is shipped with TruWare, Pressure Systems’ user-friendly software created specifically for the TruBlue line. Users are able to graph and export data using this new software and easily manage their data. The software is available for both PC and mobile applications.

The TruBlue 555 Level transducer sampling modes include linear, linear averaging and event, with programmable sampling rates of up to five readings per second.

The new transducer is available in full scale water level ranges from 0-11.5 ft. to 0-658 ft. (from 5 to 300 psi). The 3/4″ diameter unit comes in welded 316 SS or titanium, making it ideal for a variety of applications including brackish and seawater. The operating temperature range is 0 degrees C to 50 degrees C (32 degrees F to 122 degrees F).

The new TruBlue 555 Level transducer has a two-year warranty and comes standard with a calibration report.

Pricing for a TruBlue 555 Level starts at $995.
