HI-98196 Multiparameter Waterproof Meter information

Hanna's extended description

HI-98196 provides multi-parameter measurement in a compact and rugged IP67 waterproof enclosure. Ideal for demanding application, this meter features our rugged, quick connect multi-function probe with field replaceable sensors. The HI-98196 measures pH/mV, ORP, Dissolved Oxygen, Atmospheric Pressure and Temperature

A backlit, graphic LCD provides easy to read resolution even in low-lit areas. A combination of dedicated and soft keys allows easy, intuitive operation in a choice of languages.

HI-98196 allows users to store up to 45,000 continuous or log-on demand samples with logging intervals from one second to three hours. Logged data can be later transferred to a PC with the HI-920015 micro USB cable and Hanna software.

Comprehensive GLP data includes data from the last five calibrations. The contextual Help Menu can be accessed to obtain on-screen information and assistance about each feature at the touch of a button.

pH specific features

  • Up to three point calibration with five standard buffers and one custom buffer available

Dissolved Oxygen specific features

  • Display units in % saturation of mg/L (ppm)
  • Salinity compensation for concentration
  • Pressure compensation for concentration
  • Built-in barometer with user-selectable units (mmHg, inHg, atm, psi, kPa, mbar)
  • Temperature compensation
  • Automatic polarisation of probe at startup
  • Ready to use HDPE pre-tensioned membrane caps are easy to replace

Key features

  • IP67 rated waterproof, rugged enclosure for meter, IP68 for probe
  • Colour-coded, field replaceable sensors
  • Auto sensor recognition
  • Automatic logging of up to 45,000 samples
  • Store measurement data at the press of a button
  • On-screen context specific help is readily available at the press of a button
  • PC connectivity via opto-isolated micro-USB with Hanna software
  • Up to 360 hours of battery life, powered by (4) 1.5V batteries
  • The HI-7698196 probe features a quick connect DIN connector for a water tight connection

IP68 - Electrode is dust-tight and protected against the effects of continuous immersion in water beyond 1m.

PC Interface - Download test results to a computer programmed with HANNA’s Windows® compatible software (HI-92000), directly from equipment via a USB port or a RS232 cable outlet.
