Kit Measures Dissolved Oxygen in Field Environments

Extech Instruments announces its waterproof ExStik Kit, Model DO600-K, which conveniently adds versatility for measuring dissolved oxygen in laboratories or out in the field, with an extension cable and weighted probe guard for use in tanks, streams or bodies of water.

The DO600 meter self-calibrates on startup and simultaneously displays dissolved oxygen, temperature, and an analog bar graph to observe trends in sample testing. The meter is waterproof to IP57 and displays oxygen level as percent (%) saturation from 0 to 200.0 percent or concentration from 0 to 20.00ppm (mg/L). It features adjustable altitude compensation from 0-20,000 feet in 1,000-foot increments and adjustable salinity compensation from 0-50 ppt.

Additional features of the DO600 meter include data hold, auto shut-off, storage for up to 25 data sets with DO and temperature readings, and low battery indication. It comes complete with an ExStik II meter, DO electrode, protective sensor cap, DO603 replacement membrane kit, 16-foot (5 meter) extension cable, weighted probe guard, four 3V CR-2032 batteries, 48-inch (1.2 meter) neck strap and hard carrying case.
