SO-110: Soil Response Thermistor Reference Oxygen Sensor


Product Description

Apogee oxygen sensors are designed to measure 0 – 100% oxygen and come with tinned leads to connect to a datalogger. The SO-110 is designed for use in soil applications with a larger signal, slower response and longer life. It comes with a thermistor temperature sensor to correct for temperature changes. In applications with high humidity, condensation can occur on the Teflon membrane, blocking the diffusion path of the sensor. To prevent this, a resistive heater is included to raise the temperature of the membrane approximately two degrees above ambient temperature. Optional  diffusion or flow-through heads are sold separately if needed for your application. The sensor is calibrated to ambient air making it very easy to calibrate. The epoxy-filled housing was recently upgraded from aluminum to polypropylene to better withstand harsh and corrosive conditions.
