pH/EC/TDS Multiparameter Probe


The HI1285-5 is a 3-in-1 pre-amplified multiparameter probe that measures pH, EC/TDS, and temperature within a single polypropylene body. The pH portion of this probe is constructed with a cloth junction, maintenance-free polymer gel electrolyte, and a low-temperature glass sensing bulb. The EC/TDS portion of this probe utilizes two stainless steel pins for an amperometric determination of conductivity and total dissolved solids. A built-in temperature sensor ensures that both pH and EC/TDS readings are compensated for temperature variations in both standards and samples. The design consideration for the HI1285-5 is ideal for measuring the pH, EC/TDS, and temperature in greenhouses, hydroponics, environmental monitoring, water treatment, and boilers and cooling towers. The HI1285-5 is designed for use with Hanna’s HI9813-5, HI9812-5, and HI9811-5 portable multiparameter meters.

•  Amperometric EC/TDS sensor
•  Built-in temperature sensor
•  Pre-amplified pH electrode

Amperometric EC/TDS Sensor
•  EC/TDS readings are performed by a two-pin amperometric sensor.
•  An alternating voltage is applied to the sensor and the amount of current that passes between the two stainless steel pins determines the amount of dissolved ionic solids present.

  Built-In Temperature Sensor
•  pH and EC/TDS readings must be temperature compensated in order to obtain accurate results.
•  The built-in temperature sensor of the HI1285-5 provides a speedy temperature reading which is then used to adjust the pH and EC/TDS results accordingly.

  DIN Connector
•  The HI1285-5 uses a DIN connector.
•  This type of connector is generally proprietary to the meters they are supplied with and may not be interchangeable.
•  The HI1285-5 is designed for use with Hanna’s HI9813-5, HI9812-5, and HI9811-5 portable multiparameter meters.

  Polypropylene Body
•  The polypropylene body of the HI1285-5 houses all three sensors within a sturdy, single body design.
•  This body material is suitable for a wide range of applications and excels in measurements with portable meters due to its durability.
•  The fins around the spherical glass pH bulb minimizes breakage due to accidental bumping or dropping of the electrode.
•  The polypropylene plastic is a high quality plastic that is chemically resistant to many aggressive chemicals.

  Pre-Amplified pH Electrode
•  The pH electrode circuit has a built-in amplifier that serves to reduce the effects of electrical noise on the high impedance pH measurement.
•  Electrical noise can come from motors and pumps that are common in greenhouses.
•  The single reference junction design of the pH electrode has a cloth junction that allows ion movement between the inner gel electrolyte and the sample being measured.
•  The advantage of the cloth junction is that it can be extracted from the probe, exposing a fresh surface when readings become drifty or erratic.
•  These features make this probe ideal for use in fertilizer solutions.
