OBS500 Turbidity Probe with Antifouling

OBS500 Turbidity Probe with Antifouling from Campbell Scientific Australia

By: Campbell Scientific Australia  09-Nov-2011
Keywords: Sensors, Monitoring Equipment, Environmental Sensors

The OBS500 combines a backscatter sensor (better at measuring high turbidity) with a second sidescatter sensor (better at measuring lower turbidity). This SDI-12 probe uses digital processing. The OBS500 incorporates the ClearSensorTM Antifouling Method (patent pending) to ensure the accuracy of its measurements. The ClearSensor method uses a shutter/wiper mechanism to protect and clean the optics. This antifouling method also includes a chamber filled with a biocide that continuously leaches out over the optics while the probe is in the closed position. Campbell Scientific is offering a disposable plastic sleeve that can make clean up a snap, as well as an optional copper sleeve that can provide additional protection, especially in sea water. Features/Benefits • Dual backscatter and sidescatter sensors used to measure turbidity • ClearSensorTM (patent pending) Antifouling Method providing better measurements biologically-active water • Shutter/wiper mechanism • Refillable biocide chamber • Disposable plastic sleeve that facilitates clean up • Optional copper sleeve for additional protection, especially in sea water. • SDI-12 and 5V outputs
