Overview
The PME miniWIPER is a self-contained, completely submersible wiping device that can be used with a variety of sensors including the miniDOT Logger. It can be programmed to wipe at various intervals, and is powered from two AA Lithium batteries.

Mechanics
A small brush rotates over the sensor in order to perform a complete wipe of the sensor surface, and then rests away from the sensor to allow for accurate and continuous monitoring. The wiper is used as an anti-fouling device and prevents various organisms from growing on the sensor and interfering with data.

Questions & Answers
What are the total dimensions of the miniWIPER and miniDOT logger once the wiper has been installed?
The specifications as well as a support drawing for the miniDOT with the miniWIPER installed can be found on the specification document. 
How much power does the miniWIPER draw from the miniDOT when deployed and will it reduce the number of samples recorded on the miniDOT logger?
The miniWIPER is powered by internal batteries, so there will not be any effect on the logger which has its own batteries. More information on the number of samples that can be obtained under varying conditions such as high or low water temperatures and wiping frequency, can be found on page 10 of the manual.
What is the expected battery life of the miniDOT wiper running at 6-hour intervals?
Page 10 of the manual states that the wiper battery would technically last 16 months, when wiped every 6-hours. However, it is recommended to wipe slightly more often than you think you may need, since biofouling can happen pretty quickly, given the right conditions. https://www.fondriest.com/pdf/pme_miniwiper_manual.pdf

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.
