Wireless Colorimeter And Turbidity Sensor



Release date to be confirmed early 2018

The Wireless Colorimeter and Turbidity Sensor simultaneously measures the absorbance and transmittance of six different wavelengths. Each wavelength represents a region of the ROYGBIV color wheel and can be displayed graphically using PASCO software. 

The colorimeter can be used to study concentrations of solutions, the rates of chemical reactions and more. Calibration is simple and quick and the black opaque housing eliminates ambient light to assure data accuracy.

Additionally, this sensor functions as a high quality turbidimeter for water quality analysis. Rather than simply measure transmitted light, the Wireless Colorimeter and Turbidity Sensor uses the industry standard method of using light scattered by a sample at 90 degrees resulting in more accurate and repeatable measurements. 

With the wireless, rugged design, this instrument is ideal for use in the field as well as in the lab.


Typical Applications

  • Study absorbance vs concentration
  • Determine the concentration of an unknown solution (Beer's Law experiments)
  • Measure reaction rates
  • Compare the turbidity of water samples from various field locations
  • Measure the rate of settling of a sample
  • Measure the formation of a precipitate

Special Features

  • Stabiliized light source for consistent readings
  • Able to measure six different wavelengths simultaneously
  • "Smart colors" in PASCO software diplay the absorbance & transmittance at each wavelength in a very visual way.
  • Quick and easy calibration
  • A colorimeter and turbidimeter together for one low price.
