Overview

The CS526 isolated pH probe makes reliable, accurate pH measurements in aqueous solutions. It can be submersed or inserted into tanks, pipelines, and open channels. This probe has a serial, TTL output that represents a 2 to 12 pH range.

Benefits and Features

  • Innovative ISFET pH-sensing element
  • Easily cleaned
  • More rugged than the traditional glass electrode pH probes
  • Each sensor individually tested
  • Designed and manufactured under stringent quality control conditions in an ISO 9001 environment
  • CE compliant

Detailed Description

The CS526 uses SENTRON’s high-tech, ion sensitive field effect transistor (ISFET) semiconductor as its pH-sensitive element, and includes a silver/silver chloride– potassium chloride reference system. The CS526’s design allows it to be suitable for a variety of liquid pH-monitoring applications. The electronics are safely embedded in a durable PEEK body. Elimination of the glass bulb removes the possibility of broken glass, making the CS526 more rugged and safer to use.

Note: Campbell Scientific warranty does not cover a clogged reference diaphragm or improperly cleaned or maintained ISFET chip. (See the Maintenance section in the instruction manual for more information.)

This sensor requires the 5 V output on the data logger to be powered..
