Oxygen Sensor Spots for Aquatic Applications

OXSP5-SUB

  • Minimized influence of hydrostatic pressure
  • For measurements in closed containers
  • Suitable for in-situ incubations
  • No oxygen consumption

Oxygen sensor spots allow oxygen measurements in closed sample containers under water with contactless read-out through a transparent window (glass, acryl glass) with special adapters and optical fibers. This enables incubations in closed systems in high water depths. 

The sensor spot can be used down to 4000m depth and has a pressure influence of ca. 1%/1000m. For read-out a suitable underwater device and an optical fiber with underwater connector is required (SPFIB-LNS-SUB or SPFIB-LNS-CL2-SUB).

Standard range. This sensor is specified for an optimum measuring range of 0 to 500 hPa oxygen (0 -250% air saturation). However, without specifications, it is possible to measure in up to 1 bar pure oxygen/100% oxygen saturation/100% O2. For detailed specifications, see the respective pdf file in the Downloads tab.

Optical isolation. For applications at high ambient light (e.g. direct sunlight, illuminated samples) and in fluorescing / light-sensitive samples, an additional optical isolation (-OI) protection layer is added to the sensor surface to avoid interferences with the measurements.

Easy calibration. A simple ambient air calibration can be performed with a few clicks (<1 minute for equilibrated setup). For precise oxygen measurements close to 0% we also offer easy-to-use calibration capsules (OXCAL). Simply dissolve the content of one calibration capsule in 100 ml distilled water, wait 10-15 minutes, perform the 0% calibration and start measurements with a calibrated sensor. For detailed calibration recommendations refer to the manual in the downloads tab.

Good value. This product is a basic sensor for applications with no special requirements (like ultra fast response times, resistance to solvents, low detection limit)
