Fluorimeter Hyperion Turbidity
Optical turbidity sensor

Optical turbidity sensor The new Valeport Hyperion-T is essentially two sensors in one.
The first is a "classic" turbidity sensor, a nephelometer using a 90° beam angle, for low turbidity levels (0 to 1,000 NTU). The second, for high turbidity levels (1,000 to 6,000 NTU) uses an optical backscattering device (OBS) (~120° beam angle).
Intelligent sampling and the use of a 24-bit ADC eliminate the need for a gain switch at higher turbidity levels. The optical head is very compact - measuring just 20 mm in diameter and with a full ocean depth rating lends itself to OEM type solutions.
A compact, rugged package ideal as a stand-alone sensor, for ROV and AUV integration, or used as part of a multi-sensor network and data logging system. Offered as standard in a titanium housing with a nominal depth of 6,000 m, the Hyperion turbidity instrument features a wide-range isolated power supply (9-30 V DC), data output up to 16 Hz on RS232 and RS485 or Modbus.
