AquaPlus Meter - Suitable for Portable Water Quality Measurement

The AquaPlus probe is a portable combined optical dissolved oxygen, electrical conductivity and temperature sensor from Aquaread. Suitable for testing groundwater, surface water and waste water, the IP68 rated AquaPlus is constructed from rugged materials to withstand harsh environmental conditions and all types of water. Due to the built in conductivity sensor, the AquaPlus is able to calculate and automatically compensate DO readings for changes in water salinity. 
Advantages of the optical sensor technology includes oxygen is not consumed by the sensor so no flow of water is required, the sensor holds calibration well and requires little maintenance, low maintenance cost with caps lasting over 2 years. The robust meter houses an air pressure sensor used in automated compensation, along with the GPS receiver which can be found in all of Aquaread’s portable field equipment.   

Ideal for handheld water quality measurement, the AquaPlus measures optical % DO saturation, optical DO mg/L, conductivity, total dissolved solids, resistivity, salinity, temperature and seawater specific gravity. The sensor is suitable for a wide range of applications from fish farming to brewing.

The AquaPlus measuring package consists of a GPS Aquameter, AquaPlus Probe complete with measurement sensors, 3m cable inclusive accessories and fluids in a solid compact case.
