Overview

The HOBO MX2501 pH and Temperature Data Logger is designed for long-term monitoring of pH in estuaries, lakes, streams, rivers, and oceans. Leveraging Bluetooth Low Energy® (BLE) technology, the MX2501 pH Logger communicates wirelessly with the free HOBOmobile® app on iOS devices making logger setup, calibration, and data offload quick and easy. A guided pH calibration process on the HOBOmobile app makes an otherwise complicated process easier to follow. This affordable and compact logger dramatically cuts the time and effort needed to collect field data, while also offering higher resolution data.

NOTE: pH electrodes should always be stored in storage solution when not deployed.

Highlighted Features

  • Guided pH calibration following on-screen prompts in HOBOmobile app
  • Rugged PVC housing for deployment in both freshwater and saltwater environments
  • Quick and easy data offload via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to iOS devices
  • Water detection system for longer battery life and less maintenance
  • Potentiometric pH electrode with plastic body, gel electrolyte, and double cloth junction
  • User-replaceable battery, pH electrode, and anti-biofouling copper guard

U24-002-C

The HOBO U24-002-C is a cost-effective data logger for measuring salinity, conductivity and temperature in saltwater environments with relatively small changes in salinity (±5,000 μS/cm) such as saltwater bays, or to detect salinity events such as upwelling, rainstorm, and discharge events. It can also be used to gather salinity data for salinity compensation of HOBO U26 Dissolved Oxygen logger data.

Note: When monitoring salinity in waters with more than +/-5,000 uS/cm variation, refer to the accuracy shown in Plot C in the product specifications to determine if the accuracy is acceptable for your needs. Monthly field calibration readings are typically required to achieve the best accuracy.

Includes:

  • U26-001 data logger
  • DO sensor cap
  • Protective Guard
  • Calibration Boot with sponge

Our HOBO U26 Dissolved Oxygen logger has been part of a multi-year evaluation of DO loggers and sensors by the Alliance for Coastal Technologies (ACT), and the results have been published online. This provides an un-biased report of how our U26 performs in lab and field conditions. Note that our response letter with our added recommendations is attached at the end of this report on pages 58 and 59.
