Turbidity Sensor Infrared Turbidity Measurement
Measuring turbidity with advanced optical infrared (IR) sensing and intelligent electronics, Electro Chemical Devices' Triton TR6 is a versatile solution for environmental monitoring, water treatment or backwash control applications. It measures turbidity or suspended solids in four selectable dual ranges featuring pre-set low and high ranges from 0 to 4000 NTU. The Triton's optical IR sensor emits a beam of 850 nm (near infrared light) into a water sample where it is scattered by particles suspended in the water. The amount of light reflected back to the sensor by the particles is correlated to the turbidity or suspended solids present in the water. The measuring results can be displayed in milligrams per liter (mg/L), parts per million (ppm) and percent solids to volume depending on the size, shape and composition of the suspended solids. The TR6 Sensor operates at pressures up to 50 psi, providing a drift rate of less than 1 percent per month.
