Portable field meters from Hanna

  • Rugged, waterproof and easy to use, the HI 9829 is the ideal meters for field measurements of lakes, rivers and seas. It displays 1 to 12 parameters simultaneously from up to 15 user selectable parameters. Combined with one of the HI 76x9829 series probes, the HI 9829 can measure water quality parameters such as pH, ORP, conductivity, turbidity, temperature, ions ions ammonium, nitrate, chloride (NH4+, NO3-—N or Cl-), dissolved oxygen concentration, resistivity, TDS, salinity, and seawater specific gravity. Atmospheric pressure is measured for DO compensation.

    The HI 9829 features a graphic, backlit LCD that scales digits to fit up to 12 parameters and allows full configuration of each parameter measured along with an on-screen graphing capability.

    Other Features:

    • Field replaceable ISO 7027 compliant turbidity sensor
    • Ammonium, chloride and nitrate ISE’s
    • Logging from probe or meter
    • Fully customizable instrument, probe, sensors and measurement specifications
