FlowTracker2 Depth Measurements with Compensation for Dynamic Pressure Effects

The FlowTracker2 was introduced to the water monitoring community in early 2016 with numerous changes and improvements compared to its predecessor, SonTek’s Original FlowTracker. In November, SonTek released version two of the FlowTracker2, with integrated Pressure Sensor.

Adding a pressure sensor to the existing FlowTracker2 may sound simple in concept, but many factors had to be considered during development to obtain a proper water depth measurement. This technical note serves to explain the implementation of the pressure sensor hardware, as well as to outline the various patent-pending pressure corrections performed to obtain the most reliable and accurate automatic water depth measurement.
