Fiberoptic Water Sensor Is Small, Light, And Low Power

by Mat Dirjish

Intelligent Optical Systems describes its Apollo water sensor as an optode-based sensing platform that delivers sensitive measurements in challenging environments. Boasting low size, weight, and power, the platform employs optical fiber technology that reduces interference from unwanted sources. Also, users can locate the sensor far from the readout unit without power requirements.

The platform also includes multiple dissolved oxygen (DO) and pH optical sensor caps. According to the company, complex calibrations are unnecessary. Users just replace the pre-calibrated sensor cap to switch between different sensors and customize their measurement capabilities.

The Apollo’s eight configurable channels are custom configurable with optical, electrical, and electrochemical sensor channels, making it viable for applications such as down-well sensing, remote sensing, wastewater monitoring, drinking water monitoring, aquaculture, hydroponics, and environmental monitoring. Other features include a choice of six different sensors from a wide variety of options including third-party sensors.

Customizable upon request, a base-configuration unit includes two LED and two photodetector channels (for DO and pH measurements), one temperature (RTD), and one conductivity (EC) channel. For greater gleanings, peruse the Apollo overview.
