PME miniDOT Dissolved Oxygen Logger

Overview
The PME miniDOT is a submersible instrument that includes an optical dissolved oxygen sensor, a temperature sensor, batteries and a micro SD memory card. Data is recorded internally with a sample interval from once per minute to once per hour and can be offloaded to a computer via USB cable.

Internal Storage
The miniDOT sensor is an optode that measures lifetime-based luminescence quenching of a thin membrane. The sensing foil contains a coating with a variable fluorescence that depends on oxygen concentration in the surrounding water. The sensor can compute dissolved oxygen concentration in mg/L and record these measurements internally. Each logger is factory-calibrated at 12 dissolved oxygen concentrations, each at 8 temperatures, for a total of 96 calibration points.

Included with miniDOT logger (Part #7450):

  • miniDOT dissolved oxygen logger

Included with miniDOT logger with wiper bundle (Part #9190):

  • miniDOT dissolved oxygen logger
  • miniWIPER anti-fouling sensor wiper
  • miniWIPER bracket
  • anti-fouling copper plate (with hardware)
Questions & Answers
How does the miniDOT measure dissolved oxygen?
The PME miniDOT determines DO in water using an optode that measures flourescence.
What software comes with the dissolved oxygen logger?
The PME miniDOT includes free Java-based Windows software for configuration the logger and offloading data. The software will also compute oxygen saturation from the miniDOT logger measurements. A USB to micro USB cable is sold separately and required to communicate with the logger.
How long will the battery last?
With a 1-minute sample interval, the logger will remain powered for approximately 1-year.
What are the recommended replacement batteries for the miniDOT logger?
PME states that Alkaline batteries are good for short deployments, where lithium batteries are best for longer deployments, or deployments in cold environments. Battery life and other options are discussed further on page 10 of manual.
Is the software the same for the PME miniDOT and Cyclops-7 Loggers?
While the software is similar for these loggers, in that you can change sampling rates and other settings, they are different programs. The software is loaded onto the logger and can be accessed by connecting to a computer with the USB communication cable.
What is the expected lifespan for the PME miniDOT Logger?
With proper care, maintenance and calibrations PME Loggers can operate well beyond 5 years.

Applied Research and Innovative Solutions: Creating CHNGES at Western Kentucky University

Long-standing environmental monitoring programs have the power to support a large number of research initiatives and policy changes—however, actually starting these networks can prove challenging. Not only is starting the program difficult, but keeping things operational for decades to come has also been challenging for environmental professionals hoping to make an impact with applied research. Jason Polk, Professor of Environmental Geoscience and Director of the Center for Human GeoEnvironmental Studies (CHNGES) at Western Kentucky University, is all too familiar with this process.

Combating Water Insecurity in Saskatchewan with Real-Time Data

The prairies of Saskatchewan can be described as one of the least water-secure parts of Canada, making water quality monitoring essential for informed resource management in a region already facing water insecurity. While natural physical properties worsen some of the poor water quality conditions in the region, others are connected to land use. Having grown up spending summers on the shores of Lake Huron, Helen Baulch, an associate professor at the School of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Saskatchewan , has always been dedicated to the protection of water resources. Looking back fondly at her childhood playing along the shore, Baulch also recalls the invasion of quagga mussels during her teenage years and watching the lake change as a result.

Seametrics Turbo Turbidity Logger: Boost your Turbidity Monitoring

The Seametrics Turbo Turbidity Logger is a self-cleaning turbidity sensor capable of internally logging over 260,000 data records. The sensor enables researchers, compliance officers, and contractors to monitor turbidity in various applications, from construction and dredging sites to wastewater effluent.  Due to its narrow width, this device can be deployed in a range of areas, from small well spaces to rivers and streams. The stainless steel housing and built-in wiper allow the sensor to withstand long-term deployments and reduce the need for maintenance trips.  The logger accurately records temperature and turbidity up to a depth of 50 meters.
