    Model 8002-WP

    The Model 8002-WP (LC-2WP) is a stand-alone, waterproof, single-channel datalogger designed to read both the vibrating wire element and the integral thermistor of any GEOKON vibrating wire sensor. The LC-2WP is housed inside a rugged PVC waterproof enclosure, which is particularly well-suited for operation in harsh environments. Power is provided by internal alkaline or lithium ‘D’ cells; 12 V batteries and solar panels options are also available.

Addressable Vibrating Wire Interface

    Model 8020-30

    The Model 8020-30 Addressable Interface is designed to “daisy-chain” vibrating wire sensors on a single 4-conductor cable, using the Modbus® RTU protocol over an RS-485 connection. The 8020-30 is useful for reducing cable runs in multipoint systems, incremental extensometers, and for applications where many sensor cables might compromise a grout or cement bond, e.g. on a soil nail. The system comprises a trunk cable with splitters containing the circuitry to excite, read and ID each sensor. Readout is achieved with the FPC-2 Field PC, 8600 Series Dataloggers or PC application.
