Hach Releases 2100Q Portable Turbidimeter

By on August 17, 2010

The new Hach 2100Q Portable Turbidimeter is easy to use, accurate, and conforms to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Method 180.1 for turbidity measurements. It also offers a number of features that streamline the measurement process, such as assisted calibration and simplified data transfer.

Hach Releases 2100Q Portable TurbidimeterEasy Calibration and Verification — On-screen assisted calibration and verification helps ensure measurements are right every time. The easy-to-follow interface helps save time in the field by eliminating the need to reference complicated manuals in order to perform routine calibrations. Hach’s single-standard “RapidCal” calibration offers a simplified solution for low-level measurements.

Simple Data Transfer — Data transfer with the 2100Q is simple, flexible, and doesn’t involve additional software. This feature requires the USB + Power module. All data can be transferred to the module and easily downloaded to a computer with a USB connection, providing superior data integrity and availability. With two different module options, it’s possible to customize connectivity and power to meet a project’s specific needs.

Accuracy for Rapidly Settling Samples — The Hach 2100Q incorporates an innovative Rapidly Settling Turbidity (RST) mode to provide accurate, repeatable measurements for difficult-to-measure, rapidly settling samples. An exclusive algorithm that calculates turbidity based on a series of automatic readings eliminates redundant measurements and estimating.

Convenient Data Logging — As many as 500 measurements are automatically stored in the instrument for easy access and backup. Stored information includes: date and time, operator ID, reading mode, sample ID, sample number, units, calibration time, calibration status, error messages, and the result.
