Quick Connect Plugs

All Turtle Tough Digital sensors are equipped with 6 metres of cable terminated with our Quick Connect Plug, enabling users to simply plug the sensor into the analyser and start measuring. The Quick Connect Plug is waterproof, corrosion resistant and NEMA 6P and IP67 rated for added surety in your measurement process. The extra-long 6 metres of cable allow you to consolidate several analysers into a single panel enclosure for convenient viewing and maintenance. Using additional Quick Connect extension cables, users can run up to 610 metres of cable with no degradation in signal!

Simple, Elegant Calibration

Calibration settings are stored on the Turtle Tough Digital sensor. Simply calibrate your sensor in the workshop and plug it in to our digital analyser for instant pH or ORP measurement capability. The calibration values on the sensor are automatically uploaded to the analyser, so sensors can be easily swapped out or replaced at any time with no manual changes to the analyser. Calibration can be automatic or manual, and performed either using Windows software or on the Turtle Tough Digital analyser.

Analyser Configuration Management

The configuration of the Turtle Tough Digital analyser can be downloaded as a backup to the attached sensor. This configuration can then be uploaded onto a different transmitter to create a cloned configuration. Additionally, configurations can be stored in a Windows environment as an archived record. Restore backup points can be created and users can revert to the restore point at any time.

Comprehensive Data

The Turtle Tough Digital systems log the following information:

  • Previous five calibration sets on transmitter and the date stamp of each
  • Total time in field service, for easy tracking of sensor lifespan and life cycle management
  • Minimum and maximum temperatures experienced by the sensor
  • Digital date stamping of key dates: shipped from factory, first field installation, last field service use

Automatic Temperature Compensation

Temperature compensation coefficient can be adjusted by the user for unusual or extreme applications, or the automatic temperature compensation in the system ensures accurate reading from -40 to +210°C.
