The 851-pH package comprises Windmill Software for Windows, a data logger to measure 12 pH probes and pH signal conditioning.
Price: 1095 GB pounds.
Note, to interface pH meters choose instead our Windmill + COMIML serial driver package, for just 50 pounds.
- Monitor 12 pH electrodes or probes, expandable to 16 on request.
- Can also monitor digital inputs, count, control digital outputs and measure temperature, pressure, flow, level, etc
- Read data over an Ethernet network or over the Internet
- Includes the powerful yet easy-to-use Windmill Software for Windows: no programming required
- Automatic ranging lets the software match the pH signal as closely as possible
- Integrating analogue-to-digital converter reduces electrical noise
- Use software to select the resolution of the A-D converter from 12- to 18-bits: choose high resolution for greater accuracy
- Automatic recalibration
- Set two alarms on each pH probe
- Free technical support for life and money-back guarantee if not satisfied
The 851-pH package comprises an 851 data logger, a pH connection box and Windmilll data acquisition software. Just connect your electrodes to the pH box's input protected sockets, plug the box into the 851 data logger and away you go. This method of connection means you can use the 851 Data Logger to monitor, for example, temperatures, flow or level at the same time as pH
The standard pH package handles 12 pH electrodes, but can be expanded to 16 electrodes on request.
Designed for Accuracy
The voltage produced by a change in pH is very small. A change of one pH unit on the pH scale produces (ideally) a change in voltage of 59.16 mV at 25 oC. With the 851-pH package you can choose a narrow input range such as +/- 10 or 100 mV, or select autoranging to let the software automatically choose the best range for your measurements. Choosing the smallest range that encompasses your signals will optimise the resolution of the measurement. You can also choose the resolution of the analogue-to-digital converter, selecting 18-bit for more accurate measurements. The higher resolution slows down the system to 6 samples per second, but as pH changes relatively slowly this is not generally a problem. If you need faster measurements, choose 16- or 15-bit resolution.
An integrating analogue-to-digital converter reduces internal noise and a differential amplifier helps reduce external noise.
To further improve accuracy, make sure you keep the wires between the electrodes and the pH box short - spanning not more than a few meters.
Set Alarms on Each pH Probe
You can set two alarm levels on each pH probe, and specify what happens when an alarm threshold is crossed. For example, an alarm could be sounded or other equipment switched on.
Windmill Software is included in the 851-pH package. This modular suite offers data logging, charting, alarm indication, output control and real-time links to other applications like Excel. You can also add process mimic generators, sequence control and many other modules. Should you wish to program the hardware yourself, you can use the IML Tools to do so.
