  • Ah, I’m not able to help as I don’t code.

  • I’m not sure how I missed the SD card reader on the board. I’ll see if my Tech guy can re-write to that. Thanks!

    As for shipping, I’ll give one of those forwarders a try. Really wish it could be sold on amazon.ca though. I’m a bit of a leader in the low-cost data logger/sensor scene for British Columbia hydrology folks, but unfortunately, I’m…[Read more]

  • Just wanted to check if I could purchase only the SD card reader I have two boards where both SD card readers that had soldering joints fail on them. I would be incredibly appreciative if I could buy just the one replacement part and have someone stick it in an envelope and mail it to a Canadian address.

    If not, I’m out about ~$3,000 in equipment…[Read more]

  • Hi David,

    Just to follow up on your comments, and then provide the report that I wrapped up last month where I tested the Maxbotix sensor.

    Just a quick reply to each comment here:
    1) yep, definitely understand […]

    Hey Dave,
    As part of my technical institute’s graduation requirements, I’m currently designing a project to test the accuracy of MaxBotix’s sensors (as well as a $75 vented pressure transducer) to determine their applicability for streamflow monitoring. I’m also a hydrometric tech so do put a lot of thought into collecting accurate data.

    With…[Read more]

    • Rory,

      I have copied the comments from our email so that others can view them… thanks again.

      The U20-001-04’s (13 ft range) accuracy is 3-6 mm, so that needs to be considered. It also needs to be compensated with barrometric pressure (not mentioned in the report) which adds additional inaccuracies.

      With respect to the barometric…[Read more]

    That’s great to hear that they’re selling as well as they are and that more are being made available. Is there any thought on if the data logger will be shipped to Canada in the future?

  • Rory G posted an update 1 year, 8 months ago

    Hey All, I was really excited to purchase a Mayfly data logger but I see that they are currently unavailable on Amazon.com which I believe is the only location where they are sold. Does anyone know if this is a regular occurrence and or when they will be made available again?

    I’d also like to ask why they can’t ship to Canada? I do live somewhat…[Read more]

    • Rory G, our Amazon stock is sold out but we should have the storefront restocked soon. Shannon Hicks recently posted this:

    Fantastic. Thanks for the response and I’m looking forward to information on their updated sensor. Let’s hope the price comes down a little bit. 🙂

    Hi All,
    FYI, the Turbidity sensor linked to is set to be discontinued as of Dec 29th, 2019. Does anyone know if EnviroDIY is planning to specify another turbidity sensors for their set up?

    • The manufacturer of the turbidity sensors we usually use (Campbell Scientific) will be releasing a new version of their sensors soon, so we are working with them to make the appropriate changes needed to accommodate the new sensors. We’ll release more information when they announce that their new sensors are available.

      • Fantastic. Thanks for the response and I’m looking forward to information on their updated sensor. Let’s hope the price comes down a little bit. 🙂
