The waterproof, battery-operated Thermo Orion A322 portable conductivity meter stands up to the most demanding field applications to deliver the most advanced performance of any portable meter. Four AA batteries, included with purchase of the A322, provide over 800 hours of continuous operation so the instrument is ready when it's needed, where it's needed. The meter displays reliable conductivity, TDS, salinity and resistivity and temperature readings on a large, backlit LCD screen and automatically locks in stable readings.

Orion Star A320 series portable meters provide the largest storage capacity available for time-stamped data points, which can be conveniently uploaded to a PC through the meter's USB and RS-232 ports. Automatic or 1 to 5 point manual calibration makes instrument setup simple, while icons provide quick updates on battery life, electrode status and calibration information. Five reference temperature options are available to provide accurate data under any conditions. The simple button layout and on-screen messages also assist with calibration and explain setup menu choices.

Choosing The Right Thermo Portable For Your Project

With so many options in Thermo Scientific’s Orion Star A line, it can be difficult to narrow down which meter will best fulfill a project’s needs. One easy way to rule out some meters is by considering application type. For projects that rely largely on collecting samples in the field, a portable meter is clearly the way to go. But there’s still a handful of meters to choose from. To simplify making the right choice, we spoke with Ricki Hartwell, the global product manager for Thermo Scientific’s Orion Laboratory and Field Instruments. She recently shared her tips on choosing the right Thermo benchtop . Let’s take a look at her recommendations for selecting the right portable meter.

Assessing Cumulative Risk From Water Pollutants

New research from scientists at the Environmental Working Group (EWG) shows that an approach that assesses cumulative risk from water contaminants could save lives. EWG senior scientist Tasha Stoiber spoke with EM about how the team developed the innovative new approach . “Our organization has worked extensively on tap water over the years, and an updated version of our tap water database was just released in 2017,” explains Dr. Stoiber. “We've been thinking about new ways to analyze that data.” Right now, the risk from contaminants in water quality is assessed one at a time—but that really doesn't comport with reality.

Custom ROV Helps Protect Rockfish in Puget Sound

Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW ) scientists are using a customized underwater robotic vehicle (remotely operated vehicle or ROV) called the Saab Seaeye Falcon on a critical conservation study of threatened and imperiled rockfish. Dr. Dayv Lowry , a Senior Marine Fish Research Scientist, spoke to EM about using the ROV to facilitate rockfish conservation and recovery in the Puget Sound. “In the Pacific Northwest, the Washington and Oregon coast, several species of Rockfish have been fished for decades, with up- and downswings in abundance,” explains Dr. Lowry. “When fishing pressure decreases, and the stocks start to recover, we have gone back to fishing—the pendulum has swung over the years.
