Sensorex PH-1 Meter Accessory for iPhone and iPod Sets New Industry Standard in Portable Data Collection

Scientists, engineers, educators and technicians out in the field, in the lab or around the plant will find the new innovative Model PH-1 Meter Application Accessory for the iPhone® or iPod® available from Sensorex measures pH accurately, presents the data in an easy-to-read format and supports email transmission of critical readings.

Simply put—there’s never been a more intelligent, easier way to measure, apply and share pH data for scientific, laboratory and industrial process control purposes. First, users simply plug in the PH-1 accessory into an iPhone or iPod and follow the on screen instructions to download the free application from Apple® App Store.  Next, users connect the PH-1 module to the sensor and the application provides a real-time display of pH, millivolts, ambient temperature and solution temperature.

In environmental testing and monitoring, the PH-1 meter accessory when used with a GPS-enabled device features a time/date/location stamp.  It will record where and when the measurements were taken. Results can be grouped by location or date, and emailed to a central records office in .csv file format (Microsoft Excel® compatible). Using the PH-1 meter accessory eliminates the chances of transcription errors and improves efficiency.

For industrial processes and plants, the PH-1 meter accessory is suitable for service in easy-to-reach locations where pH measurements are routinely performed or can be taken to other distant locations where fixed instruments are unnecessary or too costly.  By recording the pH value with a time stamp and location, the PH-1 meter accessory eliminates any chance of mistakes when recording readings. It also works with location-aware devices to log the coordinates where readings were taken for analysis and auditing purposes.

Ideal for the classroom or educational field trips, the PH-1 meter application makes it fun to measure and record pH values. It is an excellent tool for teaching the chemistry of acids/bases and introductory electrochemistry. Students can install the app on their own iPod or iPhone, and share a single sensor for experiments. The app will also run on an iPad® with optimized approved software due out in late July.

The PH-1 meter accessory is designed for use with the Sensorex Model S200C/BNC combination pH electrode or the Sensorex Model S293/30K/BNC/2.5 three-in-one pH/reference/temperature electrode.  The pH electrode measures over a 0-14 pH range with accuracy to ±0.01 pH.  The voltage measurement range is -1250 to 1250 mV with accuracy to ±1 mV.  The solution temperature range is 0-100°C with accuracy to ±0.1°C.  Ambient temperature is -40 to 70°C with accuracy to ±2°C.

The PH-1 meter accessory and pH electrodes are sold separately or as a kit by Sensorex and do not include an iPhone or iPod.   Four different pH electrode sensor kit options are available with choices of sensor electrodes, connectors and cables.
