The Aanderaa Turbidity Sensors detects infra-red light scattered by particles suspended in water.
The Aanderaa Turbidity Sensor is based on the Seapoint Turbidity Meter. The sensor detects light scattered by particles suspended in water. This measurement is known to have a good correlation to the amount of suspended matter in water and can be used to monitor e.g. sediment, algae or particle pollution. The sensor generates an output voltage proportional to the turbidity or suspended solids.
Turbidity Sensor 4112 can be mounted directly on the top-end plate of the Aanderaa SeaGuard Current Meter, or on cable connected to the current meter or datalogger. The sensor output is analog, and output from the current meter is in engineering units (FTU).
