The HYDROLAB DS5 multiparameter water quality sonde offers for maximum capability and flexibility the choice of any of HYDROLAB’s 17 superior sensors for either profiling or unattended monitoring.
- Seven universal sensor ports that allow custom configuration
- Measures up to 16 parameters simultaneously (some sensors provide multiple parameters)
- Capable of measurements using any of HYDROLAB’S 17 sensors
- Flexible design for use in either profiling or long-term deployments
Tetra Tech, a premier worldwide consulting and engineering firm, focusing on water, environment, infrastructure, resource management, energy, and international development services, shared their experience with HYDROLAB DS5 sondes
“We currently maintain a network of seven DS-5 sondes to monitoring real-time water quality (pH, conductivity, and chloride) in the Purgatoire Watershed of southern Colorado. The DS-5 sondes were deployed in 2010 and have been monitoring water quality year round at 15-minute intervals for nearly five years. The durability and reliability of the DS-5 has been quite impressive considering year round operation in such a harsh environment. Freezing conditions during the winter months put added stress on the DS-5 housing and probes while flood conditions during the summer months expose each DS-5 unit to gravels and other debris. The durability and reliability of the DS-5 sonde has definitely helped improve the quality of our monitoring program by minimizing lost data due to repairs.”
