The dissolved oxygen probe 7422 is a galvanic measuring element which produces a millivolt output proportional to the oxygen present in the medium it is placed in. It consists of an upper part with cathode, anode and cable, and a cap with membrane and electrolyte.
Oxygen diffuses through the membrane onto the cathode, where it reacts chemically and then combines with the anode. This chemical process develops an electric current, which flows through a built-in resistor. The resistor converts the current (microamps) into millivolts. This millivolt signal is led to the data logger via a two core cable.
The probe is virtually maintenance free, requiring only that its membrane be kept reasonably clean. The anode remains fully active through its lifetime of several years. The membrane is very robust and can be wiped clean with a cloth or paper. It is recommended that the membrane be cleaned from time to time to ensure maximum reliability.
