This transducer’s internal 5-year 3.6 V lithium battery has on-board surge protection making it ideal for remote environmental data collection and process, including environmental and watershed management applications, ground water, surface water, canal and harbor monitoring.

The TruBlue 585 CTD features a fully-sealed design, multiple interfaces, and an internal memory of 8 MB that is capable of storing up to 550,000 data conductivity, level and temperature measurements. It has a level accuracy of +/- 0.1% FS total error band, which includes changes in temperature within the compensated temperature range of 0 degrees C to 50 degrees C, and a conductivity range of 5-200,000 microseconds/cm with an accuracy of 20 microseconds/cm.

TruWare, Pressure Systems’ user-friendly software created specifically for the TruBlue line, comes standard with the new transducer. Available for both PC and mobile applications, users can easily graph, export and manage data using the new software.

Sampling modes for the TruBlue 585 CTD include linear, linear average and event with programmable sampling rates of up to five readings per second. Stabilization time is 10 seconds.

The 3/4″ diameter unit comes in welded 316 SS or titanium and is available in full scale water level ranges from 0-11.5 ft. to 0-658 ft. (5 psi to 300 psi). The operating temperature range for the TruBlue 585 CTD is 0 degrees C to 50 degrees C (32 degrees F to 122 degreesF).

The new transducer has a two-year warranty and comes standard with a calibration report.

Pricing for a TruBlue 585 CTD starts at $1,885. Delivery is 4 weeks ARO.
