EXO Turbidity Sensor
Turbidity is the indirect measurement of the suspended solid concentration in water and is typically determined by shining a light beam into the sample solution and then measuring the light that is scattered off of the particles which are present. The suspended solid concentration is an important water quality factor and is a fundamental measure of environmental change. The source of the suspended solids varies in nature (examples include silt, clay, sand, algae, organic matter) but all particles will impact the light transmittance and result in a turbidity signal. The EXO Turbidity sensor employs a near-infrared light source and detects scattering at 90 degrees of the incident light beam. According to ASTM D7315 method, this type of turbidity sensor has been characterized as a nephelometric near-IR turbidimeter, non-ratiometric. This method calls for this sensor type to report values in formazin nephelometric units (FNU). FNU is the default calibration unit for the EXO sensor but users are able to change calibration units to nephelometric turbidity units (NTU), raw sensor signal (RAW), or total suspended solids (TSS) assuming the user enters the appropriate correlation data.
Increased range and comparable to existing 6 series sensors
Standard Turbidity probe will now read up to 4000 NTU. This is critical in event monitoring (stormwater, waste water)
Range: 0 to 4000 FNU
Accuracy: 0 to 999 FNU: 0.3 FNU or ±2% of reading, w.i.g.; 1000 to 4000 FNU: ±5% of reading10
Response: T63<2 sec
Resolution: 0 to 999 FNU = 0.01 FNU; 1000 to 4000 FNU = 0.1 FNU
