The InsiteIG Portable Meter (IPM) with a Low Range Suspended Solids (PSSL) sensor is an inexpensive, reliable way to monitor sediment concentrations in a slurry, stream, or ditch. An accurate reading is available in less then 15 seconds of putting the sensor in the solution to be measured.
The measuring range is 0 to 1,500 parts per million of sediment concentration. The complete system includes the meter, sensor with 20 feet of cable, battery charger, download software, and a PortaCaddie organizer.
The download software allows you to define sample locations, save sediment concentration readings along with a date and time stamp, and then download the data to a spreadsheet. This makes it easy to organize the data and allows for simple graphing.
