Multiparameter water quality meter with GPS

Monday, 01 December, 2008 | Supplied by: Hanna Instruments Pty Ltd

Hanna’s HI 98280 multiparameter portable meter with GPS receiver monitors up to 13 different water quality parameters (six measured, seven calculated).

Measurements from specific locations are tracked with detailed coordinate information that can be viewed immediately on the display. GPS information can be transferred to a PC using the HI 929828 software and viewed by external GPS mapping software, such as Google Maps. The built-in 12-channel GPS receiver and antenna provides a position accuracy of 10 m.

For measuring points within a 10 m range or where GPS signals are not available, HI 98280’s Fast Tracker is used for associating measurements with their locations. The Fast Tracker — Tag ID System monitors and records data using iButtons that can be installed at any number of sampling sites.

The device has a graphic, backlit display that automatically sizes the digits to fit the screen and allows full configuration of each parameter measured, along with on-screen graphing capability. The meter incorporates GLP features and the downloading of data via USB connection.

The device features an internal 12-channel GPS receiver and antenna that calculates its position to track locations along with measurement data. GPS features include: coordinates shown with up to 10 measurement parameters; signal strength shown; number of satellites shown; logged data is embedded with GPS coordinates; users can associate GPS coordinates with alphanumeric locations; distances between current location and predefined locations are displayed, arranged by distance; and it memorises last location and time, should signal be lost.

The software: manages logged data from the HI 98280; displays GPS coordinates with logged data; automatically maps samples on a PC (internet connection required); and shows location points on map along with measurement data.

The tag identification system simplifies test logging. iButtons with a unique ID can be installed at various sampling sites. When the matching connector on the meter contacts the location button, measurements are logged and labelled with the alphanumeric user-entered location ID. Location, data, time and measurements are logged into the meter, which can be transferred to a PC.

Other features include: meter features IP67 and probe features IP68 waterproof protection; built-in barometer for DO compensation; quick calibration; measurement check eliminates any erroneous reading; auto recognition of pH and pH/ORP probe; logger function records the data of all connected sensors; log-on-demand and automatic logging (up to 60,000 samples); auto-range of EC and TDS readings; last five calibrations recorded; all sensors are field replaceable; meter accepts both alkaline and rechargeable batteries; and rugged probe with stainless steel tip has a diameter under 2" for wells and pipes.
