Dual Optical Backscatter (OBS) and Nephelometer Turbidity Sensor
Bluetooth and USB connectivity
Integral GNSS receiver for geo-location of profile and time synchronisation
Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery
Dedicated PC software and iOS portable device App
Valeport’s Turbidity technology is essentially two sensors in one. The ﬁrst is a “classic” nephelometer, using a 90˚ beam angle for turbidity levels between 0 and 2,000 NTU. The second sensor uses Optical Backscatter (OBS) for turbidity levels up to 10,000 NTU. The sensors output data separately and simultaneously at a programmable rate. This means that there is no need to switch ranges as conditions vary. Intelligent sampling and the use of a 24 bit ADC eliminates the need to switch gain.

Nephelometer: 0 to >1 ,000 NTU - linear response1 OBS: 0 to >4,000 NTU - linear response 1 & 2 1 depending on suspended material 2 >4,000 NTU has a non-linear monotonic response that allows derivation of higher values using look-up tables\secondary calibration
