D.O. Logger

Measure oxygen concentrations in lakes, streams, rivers, estuaries, and coastal waters with the HOBO U26 Dissolved Oxygen Logger. This affordable and precise logger is recommended for aquatic biology and hydrology research projects. The HOBO U26 uses RDO® Basic (Rugged Dissolved Oxygen) optical DO sensor technology and is easy to maintain.

• Affordable, high performance dissolved oxygen (DO) monitoring with 0.2 mg/L accuracy
• Optical DO sensor technology for long-lasting calibration with less maintenance
• Dissolved Oxygen Assistant software corrects for measurement drift from fouling; provides salinity-adjusted DO concentrations and percent saturation
• Optical USB interface for high-speed, reliable data offload
• Easy-to-replace DO sensor cap lasts six months

NOTE: For DO measurements in saltwater, an adjustment for salinity is required. For waters with small changes in salinity (<2 ppt), a salinity meter reading typically provides enough accuracy.
• U26-001 data logger
• DO sensor cap
• Protective Guard
• Calibration Boot with sponge

level logger

Onset offers high-accuracy, pressure-based water level data loggers for deployment in depths of up to 250 feet in fresh or saltwater wells, streams, lakes, wetlands and tidal areas. These water level loggers feature research-grade accuracy at a great price. Stainless steel and titanium models are available. For saltwater deployments, such as brackish wetlands and tidal areas, see HOBO U20 Water Level Titanium. The HOBO Water Level Logger is a high-accuracy, pressure based water level recording device. Operating as a standalone unit, it does not rely on cumbersome vent tubes and desiccant packs for operation which simplifies deployment and eliminates many maintenance issues. Features an Optical/USB interface, a durable ceramic pressure sensor, and multiple-rate sampling for faster sampling at critical times such as when pumping starts or stops. Includes calibration certificate of accuracy versus NIST-traceable standards at three pressure points distributed through the range.

Available in 4 Depth Ranges
0 to 4 m (0 to 13 ft) with Accuracy: ±0.075% FS, 0.3 cm (0.01 ft)
0 to 9 m (0 to 30 ft) with Accuracy: ±0.05% FS, 0.5 cm (0.015 ft)
0 to 30.6 m (0 to 100 ft) with Accuracy: ±0.05% FS, 1.5 cm (0.05 ft)
0 to 76.5 m (0 to 251 ft) with Accuracy: ±0.05% FS, 3.8 cm (0.125 ft)
