PME Integrates Turner Designs Chlorophyll a Sensor For Real-Time Monitoring
Vista, CA - February 24, 2010-Precision Measurement Engineering, Inc (PME), an internationally known oceanographic and limnologic instrument design corporation, has integrated the Turner Designs Cyclops-7 Chlorophyll sensor to their T-Chain, a multi-sensor string.
The T-Chain is a temperature string designed to collect a variety of water column measurements such as temperature, dissolved oxygen, PAR and pressure. The T-Chain is used as a water quality monitoring and management device for collecting frequent samples and storing them to a data logger. Some data loggers can telemeter the data for real-time analysis.
Future additional T-Chain Cyclops-7 sensors can include blue green algae, rhodamine WT Dye, fluorescein dye and turbidity. The sensors are manufactured by Turner Designs, a company that provides sensitive, reliable and easy-to-use fluorometers for environmental and industrial use. These sensors can be removed from the T-Chain for easy cleaning and maintenance.
For more than 20 years Precision Measurement Engineering, Inc. has been dedicated to designing and manufacturing high-quality sensors and systems. Their instruments are used throughout the international scientific community for high-resolution measurement of electrical conductivity, temperature, fluorescence, turbidity, and PAR concentration in water. Current customers include SCRIPPS Institution of Oceanography, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
