Benefits and Features

  • Measures suspended solids and turbidity for up to 4000 FNUs
  • Provides a compact, low-power probe that is field proven
  • Compatible with modern Campbell Scientific data loggers
  • Accurate and rugged


Detailed Description

The ClariVUE™10 is an ISO 7027 compliant, side-scatter turbidity sensor. It returns data via SDI-12 to a data logger. Turbidity is a common surrogate measurement for suspended sediment concentration in aquatic systems. The ClariVUE™10 is designed to operate in fresh and saline environments. It will require regular maintenance to keep the optical window clean in high bio-fouling environments. The face of the sensor is made from copper to slow biological growth over the optical windows.
