Smart Water Ions

The Smart Water Ions model specializes in the measurement of ions concentration for drinking water quality control, agriculture water monitoring, swimming pools or waste water treatment. The PRO sensors have higher performance than the former Single and Double sensors.

The Smart Water line is complementary for these kinds of projects, enabling the control of parameters like turbidity, conductivity, oxidation-reduction potential and dissolved oxygen.

PRO

This special variant integrates extreme quality sensors, with better performance than the former Single or Double lines. In this case, there is only one type of reference probe and up to 16 different ion parameters can be analyzed in 4 sockets.

Sensor sockets are configured as shown in the table below.

Differences between Ion Sensors and Ion Sensors PRO

Libelium discontinued the Single and Double variants. The Smart Water Ions PRO variant continues with no change.

Ions sensors are divided into two different groups: the normal ion sensor line and the PRO ion sensor line. The normal sensors are divided into Single and Double. It is important to know that it is not possible to combine the different groups of sensors (Single, Double and PRO). Each group has its own reference probe, and the reference probe can only be used with the corresponding sensors of that group:

  • Normal Ion Sensors (discontinued):

    • Single Junction Reference Probe

    • Double Junction Reference Probe

  • PRO Ion Sensors

    • Smart Water Ions Reference Sensor Probe [PRO]

The main differences between the normal sensors and the PRO sensors are:

  • Increased stability on time: PRO sensors are more stable and require less calibration and maintenance.

  • Versatility: PRO sensors can be combined freely because all of them use the same reference probe.

  • Modularity: The sensors of the PRO line are interchangeable, so you can measure different ion parameters just changing the header.

  • Construction: PRO sensors are based on the technology of solid state carbon nanotubes.

  • More parameters: The PRO line allows to measure parameters like Magnesium and Sodium; these ions are very important for hydroponics applications.

The calibration and maintenance processes depend on the external conditions and the final usage of the sensor.

Smart Water

The Smart Water model has been conceived to facilitate the remote monitoring of the most relevant parameters related to water quality. With this platform you can measure more than 6 parameters, including the most relevant for water control such as dissolved oxygen, oxidation-reduction potential, pH, conductivity and temperature. An extremely accurate turbidity sensor has been integrated as well.

The Smart Water Ions line is complementary for these kinds of projects, enabling the control of concentration of ions like Ammonium (NH4+), Bromide (Br-), Calcium (Ca2+), Chloride (Cl-), Cupric (Cu2+), Fluoride (F-), Iodide (I-), Lithium (Li+), Magnesium (Mg2+), Nitrate (NO3-), Nitrite (NO2 -), Perchlorate (ClO4-), Potassium (K+), Silver (Ag+), Sodium (Na+) and pH. Take a look to the Smart Water Ions line in the previous section.

Smart Water Xtreme

Smart Water Xtreme was created as an evolution of Smart Water. This model integrates high-end sensors, calibrated in factory, with enhanced accuracy and performance. Their reduced recalibration requirements and robust design enlarge maintenance periods, making it more affordable to deploy remote Smart Water applications. This line includes a great combination of the most significant water parameters like dissolved oxygen, pH, oxidation-reduction potential, conductivity, salinity, turbidity, suspended solids, sludge blanket and temperature.
