Turner Designs, PME Launch C-sense Logger
Posted by Irina Tabakina
Turner Designs introduced a submersible logger designed to work with its C-sense pCO2 sensor. Designed by water quality instrument design corporation Precision Measurement Engineering, Inc. (PME), the C-sense Logger package records time, date, internal temperature and the partial pressure of gas in liquids. C-sense enables in situ pCO2 monitoring over an extended period of time in water, oil or water and oil mixtures in depths up to 600m. Applications include water quality monitoring, aquaculture, wastewater monitoring, reef monitoring, carbon capture storage monitoring and biofuel production. Integration with the C-sense Logger enables collection and internal storage of data at a variety of sampling rates, set by the customer. Data are offloaded to a computer via a USB cable for easy viewing and analysis. The logger and sensor are powered by the Turner Designs rechargeable battery pack, potentially powering the C-sense Logger to collect 3,000 samples before recharging is required.
