Fluoroborate Ion (BF4-) Sensor Probe
This is one of several probes available for detection of dissolved ions. These sensors are meant to be used in a Waspmote wireless sensor platform by plugging them into the Waspmote Smart Water Ions Sensor Board. Up to four different Dissolved Ions sensors can be connected to the Smart Water Ions Sensor Board at a time. The Smart Water Ions Sensor Board includes adapters from BNC to RP-SMA so you can connect these sensors to it.
Note: When using this sensor, you must have the Single-Junction Reference Probe connected to the REFERENCE port of your Smart Water Ions Sensor Board.
To get an accurate specific value from the sensor, a calibration should be performed using a control solution. However, calibration is not necessary if all you need is to detect changes in ion levels over time (i.e. relative values).
