£786.00 (ex. VAT)
Cable Length

The OxyGuard Handy Polaris 2 is a portable dissolved oxygen (D.O.) meter that combines the features of the original Polaris with the convenience of data logging and data transfer capability. It measures % saturation, mg/L (ppm) and temperature and has salinity compensation. Measurements are compensated for temperature and barometric pressure. The galvanic probe is fully field-serviceable. Powered by a 9V battery. The Polaris 2 has a larger display with backlight and offers automatic calibration, and a choice of language and units of measurement. Includes a detachable clip for easy attachment to a belt or clipboard.
