PSS

Portable Suspend Solids Sensors

The Portable Suspended Solids Sensors incorporate near infrared technology to provide increased dependability of the reading when color changes in the solids occur. Fast, accurate solids readings. There are two sensor ranges available.


PSS Sensor PSSL Sensor

The standard range PSS ensor
(250 to 30,000 mg/l)

The low range PSSL sensor
(0 to 1,500 mg/l)

PSS and PSSL Method of Operation

The sensors operate on the principle of single gap light absorption as a means of detecting the presence of suspended solids. The sensors utilize a near infrared emitter to minimize color effects and compensates for emitter variations due to temperature by measuring source brightness.



PSS with PortaCaddie PSSL with PortaCaddie

The InsiteIG PortaCaddie is an organizational tool, sold with each sensor, that captures the meter along with the sensor and cable. The PortaCaddie is designed to manage the cable to eliminate tangles while using the system in the field. The meter, sensor, and cable are retained securely during transport and are easily deployed at the desired test location. The rugged design was built specifically for the rigors encountered by field instrumentation. The PortaCaddie was designed to offer a level of protection to the meter, sensor, and cable.
