Überblick

Der OBS-3+ ist ein Trübungssensor mit seitwärts weisender Optik, der in Gewässern versenkt werden kann. Er bestimmt suspendierte Festkörper und Trübung für Anwendungen wie z.b. Wasserqualität in Flüssen uns Strömen, Sedimenttransport und Überwachung von Ausbaggerungen. Logger von Campbell Scientific messen die Ausgabe des Sensors und Berechnen die Trübung.

Technische Beschreibung

The OBS-3+ uses its sideways-facing optics to emit a near-infrared light into the water. It then measures the light that bounces back from the water’s suspended particles.

If an obstruction is in the emitted light’s range, the light will scatter back and the turbidity reading will be too high. This probe's sideways-facing optics avoids obstructions above and below the probe. The OBS300 is available for locations that have obstructions around the sides of the probe.

  1. The most significant difference between backscatter and side-scatter measurements is the sample volume. A backscatter sensor has a much larger sample volume that helps measure higher turbidity values. The smaller sample volume of side-scatter sensors works better at lower turbidities.

  2. It used to be that NTUs were the unit for all turbidity sensors. In 2007, an ASTM committee formed and established different units for each category of turbidity sensor technology, and there are many. Backscatter sensors such as the OBS-3+ and the OBS501 have units of FBU (Formazin Backscatter Units), whereas ISO 7027 side-scatter sensors have units of FNU (Formazin Nephelometric Units). The side-scatter OBS501 and the ClariVUE™ sensors are part of this category. While sensors of different technical designs can be calibrated and measure Formazin the same, they will not make the same measurement in natural waters where size, shape, color, reflectivity, etc., of the particles vary. The ClariVUE™ sensor measurements will not match the OBS-3+ measurements in natural waters.

  3. The OBS-3+ or OBS300 provides two separate outputs to match the two turbidity ranges selected at the time of purchase. Use the curve that matches the turbidity range likely to be experienced during monitoring. Program the datalogger to record and store data from each output, or choose which output to use automatically depending on the turbidity.

  4. Sensors are calibrated at the factory for measurements up to 4,000 NTUs, if requested at the time of order. Sensor ranges cannot be adjusted outside the factory.

  5. The beam divergence angle of the sensor is 42°. (Within this 42° cone, 95% of the beam power is contained.)

  6. This sensor is available with two types of wipers.

    • The Hydro-Wiper-C is a battery powered mechanical wiper with a scheduled wiping frequency.
    • The Hydro-Wiper-D is a mechanical wiper that is controlled and powered by the datalogger.
  7. Possibly. Remember that the accuracy of the sensor is 0.5 NTU. If the drinking water standard is near 1, this sensor may not be a good match.

  8. The OBS-3+ and the OBS300 are essentially the same sensor but with differing optic placement. The OBS-3+ has sideways-facing optics, whereas the OBS300 has downward-facing optics.

  9. Campbell Scientific does not offer a display that can be attached directly to the sensor; however, the datalogger used to capture and record the data may have a display.
