Digital Drinking Water Turbidity System Simplifies Operations Increase Accuracy & Lower Operating Cost Using Patented DataStick Technology

Share Article

AquaSensors introduced the first digital drinking water turbidity water measurement system based on the company’s patented DataStick technology at the ACE06 conference (booth #4167). AquaSensors digital drinking water turbidity water measurement system provides very accurate turbidity measurement for drinking water applications, 0.001 NTU resolution. The system features a 135 ml chamber requiring a very small amount of Fromazin to perform EPA mandated calibrations and low flow rate to conserve water. This compact system requires only one square foot of mounting space. This revolutionary approach delivers highly accurate turbidity measurements directly over industrial communications networks including DeviceNet, Profibus, Modbus, Rockwell DF-1, USB, RS-232, and RS-485. The unit also provides a display and relay outputs for local operation. The AquaSensors digital system delivers increased accuracy, improved reliability and lowers operating costs.

The heart of the system is the patented DataStick modular sensor system that provides a superior alternative to analog sensors. The DataStick modular design has three basic interchangeable parts that deliver these benefits.

  • DataStick Sensor body

The DataStickTM sensor body is common to all applications and accepts DataStick sensor heads and DataStick network interfaces. The DataStick has an integrated 24-bit analog to digital converter insuring high quality data. The DataStick sensor body automatically detects the sensor head type connected to it and configures itself to send data through the DataStick network interface module.

  • DataStick Sensor Head

DataStick’s factory calibrated sensor heads are plug-and-play with any DataStick body eliminating the need for lengthy calibrations in the field. This makes it possible to have processes up and running in a fraction of the time it takes with traditional sensors. Signal loss or electrical interference from wiring is eliminated with this feature.

Maintenance and repair is greatly simplified with the DataStick’s hot swappable sensor heads. The heads can be changed without replacing the entire sensor and avoids rewiring. No more fumbling around with calibration solutions in the field, simply swap DataStick sensor heads and return to the office or lab for calibration.

  • DataStick Network Interface Modules

DataStick's Network Interface Modules provide network interfaces to popular industrial field buses including DeviceNet, Profibus, Modbus, Rockwell DF-1, USB, RS-232, and RS-485.

  • Integrated Sensor System

The DataStick’s’ measurement architecture eliminates the requirement for intermediate analyzers or transmitter boxes to reduces system costs, increase accuracy, faster installation, and eliminates the need to configure measurement scales after installation.

MRO inventory is reduced since Network Interface Modules and DataStick Bodies are common to all sensor heads.

DataStickTM sensors are designed for continuous industrial use and can be configured by the customer to measure any analytical parameter using a family of interchangeable sensor heads.

AquaSensors offers standard fitting shapes/sizes for common mounting applications; AquaSensors engineers can custom design the DataStick body to fit any shape or size of fitting. Sensor bodies are available in CPVC, 316 Stainless Steel, PEEK® and other materials.

AquaSensors LLC was established to develop revolutionary sensor design offerings using integrated digital communications, remote adjustments, interchangeable factory calibrated sensor heads, and plug-and-play installation.
