Waspmote Smart Water Ions Sensor Board
The Smart Water Ions Board can be used in a Waspmote system for measurement of ion concentrations in drinking water, agricultural water, swimming pools or waste water.
Some of the target dissolved ions are Calcium (Ca2+), Fluoride (F-), Fluoroborate (BF4-), Nitrate (NO3-), Bromide (Br-), Chloride (Cl-), Cupric (Cu2+), Iodide (I-), Lead (Pb2+), Silver (Ag+) and pH.
This board plugs into a Waspmote main board. Only the PT-1000 Soil/Water Temperature Sensor is included! See a list of available sensors is in Optional Recommended Products list below. As well as one PT-1000 sensor, five adapter cables are included, as shown, to connect to the reference probes and sensors that are sold separately (see options below).
The board measures 73.5 × 51 × 1.3 mm so it fits nicely on your Waspmote. The operating temperature range is -20 to +65 °C (but the range of individual sensors varies).
Up to 5 Sensors at Once You can combine sensors together to make a single device for specialized applications. Up to five sensor probes can be connected. The board has a dedicated connector for the included Soil/Water Temperature sensor. There's also one connector for a single-junction or double-junction reference probe which is required when using the pH sensor and Dissolved Ion sensors. The remaining four connectors support any of those sensors.
However, you can not mix Dissolved Ions sensors that require the single-junction probe with those that require the double-junction probe (as only one probe can be attached at a time). Make sure you get the correct reference probe for whichever ions you want to detect. The order of the options list at the bottom of this page should help in your ordering process. The pH sensor also requires a reference probe, but can use either one.
You must use the Single-Junction Reference Probe with any combination of these sensors:
You must use the Double-Junction Reference Probe with any combination of these sensors:
- Ca2+ (Calcium)
- F- (Fluoride)
- BF4- (Fluoroborate)
- NO3- (Nitrate)
- Br- (Bromide)
- Cl- (Chloride)
- Cu2+ (Cupric)
- I- (Iodide)
- Pb2+ (Lead)
- Ag+ (Silver)
Note that most of those ideas will require two Waspmote systems and two of these boards, as some sensors require the single-junction reference probe and some require the double-junction reference probe.
