OPTICAL TECHNOLOGY

The OPTOD (Optical Dissolved Oxygen technology) is based on luminescent optical technology. The OPTOD sensor is in compliance with the ASTM International Method D888-05. OPTOD does not require calibration, and thanks to an ultra low power technology, the OPTOD sensor meets the demands of field work, short and long term installation. Without oxygen consumption, this technology allows you to accurate measure in all situations, especially in very low oxygen concentrations.

DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY

The OPTOD sensor stores calibration and history data within the sensor. This allows for a plug and play system without the need for re-calibration.
Thanks to Modbus RS485 and SDI-12, the OPTOD can be connected to most commonly used devices (Datalogger, Controller, Automatation, Remote System…).

CONSTRUCTION

Compact, strong and light, the sensor can be used for portable measurement, or installed for fixed/permanent use.
Body in Stainless steel 316 L (passivation treated) or in Titanium for applications in corrosive environments.
