The CS431 is a pressure transducer manufactured for use with Campbell Scientific dataloggers. It measures both water level and water temperature in canals, wells, ponds, harbors, lakes, streams and tanks. Campbell Scientific dataloggers measure the sensor's output and then converts the measured value to the desired units.Read More
The "-L" on a product model indicates that the cable length is specified at the time of order.
The CS431 uses piezoresistive strain gage technology to measure water level and an on-board thermistor to measure temperature. Piezoresistive transducers include a strain gage bonded to a pressure-sensitive diaphragm. Electrical resistance changes as pressure changes on the diaphragm.
The CS431 has a 316 stainless steel body and Viton® and Teflon® wire seals that resist corrosion. Its double-sealed, cable harness protects the cable jacket and reduces the possibility of leakage. The end cone is interchangeable with a ¼” NPT inlet allowing easy hookup and field calibration. You can choose a polyurethane or Teflon cable (see Ordering Info). Both cable options are vented.

Note: The following shows notable compatibility information. It is not a comprehensive list of all compatible or incompatible products.
|CR500 (retired)||The CR500 can only measure pressure. This datalogger does not have a sufficient number channels to measure temperature.|
|CR510 (retired)||The CR510 can only measure pressure. This datalogger does not have a sufficient number channels to measure temperature.|
The pressure measurement requires two differential channels and one excitation channel, and the temperature measurement requires one single-ended channel and one excitation channel. The CR500 and CR510 do not have sufficient channels to measure both pressure and temperature.
