PRECISION MEASUREMENT ENGINEERING LAUNCHES NEW WATER TEMPERATURE/ OXYGEN ACCESSORY
miniWiper Accessory Enhances Oxygen Readings
San Diego, CA (February 1, 2016): Precision Measurement Engineering, a premiere designer and manufacturer of reliable and accurate water monitoring systems and instruments, is launching its newest product accessory, the miniWiper. The device is a portable and user-friendly accessory to complement the miniDOT Dissolved Oxygen/Temperature Logger, the industry’s leading instrument that logs dissolved oxygen and temperature measurements to gauge freshwater and oceanographic research all over the world.
The miniWIPER accessory is the ideal anti-fouling device to obtain accurate water temperature measurements over a longer period of time with no manual sensor cleanings. The device utilizes a small, durable brush to wipe the surface of the miniDOT Logger’s sensor once every hour (or less) to prevent invasive organisms from growing and attaching to it and potentially hindering water oxygen readings.
“One of the many appeals of the miniWIPER accessory is how relatively inexpensive it is compared to other wipers,” said PME CEO Kristin Elliot. “By using a miniDOT Wiper accessory on the miniDOT Logger, users can anticipate months of uninterrupted, accurate data collection.”
Product highlights include being able to communicate with the miniDOT Wiper to set the wipe rate, view the battery usage and set the time. Other product features include:
- USB data interface
- User replaceable brush
- User replaceable batteries
- Supplied software
“Governmental agencies and research institutions have been utilizing our instruments to aid in tracking temperatures to help forecast potential El Nino storms and global warming trends,” said Elliott. “We are thrilled to be a part of such important research that affects regions across the world.”
