Hyperion Turbidity

Hyperion Turbidity is a compact standalone environmental sensor that delivers high-performance measurements of turbidity, combining a nephelometer with a 90° beam angle for low turbidity levels and an Optical Backscatter (OBS) arrangement for higher levels. Housed in a robust titanium enclosure rated for depths to 6000 metres, it is ideal for integration into deep-sea ROVs and AUVs.

The sensor features a wide range isolated power supply accepting 9-30V DC, and can output data via RS232, RS485 and Modbus at rates of up to 16 Hz.

Specifications:

Dimensions (D x L) 78 x 264 mm
Weight 2.0 kg (3.0 kg with deployment weight) in air
0.9 kg (1.8 kg with deployment weight) in water
Depth Rating 6000m
Power Consumption <600 mW
Dynamic Range Nephelometer: 0 to >1000 NTU - linear response
OBS: 0 to >6000 NTU - linear response
>6000 NTU has a non-linear monotonic response that allows derivation of higher values using look-up tables
Linearity 0.99 R2
Min. Detection level 0.03 NTU
Baud Rate 2400 - 115200
