Bench top Multi-Function Meters : CyberScan PCD5500 pH, mV, Ion, DO, BOD, Conductivity, Salinity, TDS, Resistivity & Temperature Meter

The new top of the range Dual Channel - Simultaneous Display CyberScan PCD5500 bench multi function meter has unprecedented resolution and accuracy (Up to 0.002 pH accuracy) for precise measurements. This versatile instrument has the ability to measure pH, mV, Ion, DO, BOD, Conductivity, Salinity, TDS, Resistivity & Temperature all from the one meter - and with 0.5% Full Scale Accuracy! it can also store and recall up to an incredible 1000 Data Sets with Password Protection either manually or on programmable real-time intervals. The Series 5500 conforms to extensive GLP requirements such as Programmable Alarm, Context-Specific "HELP" Menu, Multi-Language Options and more. Advanced and sophisticated functions can be easily accessed via its scratch-resistant splash-proof extra-large LCD at a touch of a finger. Designed for optimum performance and versatility, these microprocessor-based benchtop meters provide users with programmable options that can be customized to best suit individual's discerning requirements. These premium research-grade bench meters are must-have tools for today's technologists, scientists and engineers, in meeting GLP (Good Laboratory Practices) requirements.  Please click on the above picture to view full size.

Applications for the PCD5500 multi function meter include:    

Laboratory/Industrial :

Use for water quality testing, sewage treatment, food processing (for HACCP compliance), geological testing. Great for R&D and QC applications in the food and pharmaceutical industries, paper/pulp processing, chemical industries and related fields. Suitable for most ASTM and EPA test procedures.

Water Quality Testing :

For analyzing water hard water, untreated water, drinking water, effluent water, pool water and incoming process water. Ideal for all types of quality assurance and water quality testing.

Environmental :

Use to test water quality, monitor health of aquatic ecosystems, survey surface and ground water drinking supplies, and meet EPA regulations.

Educational : 

Perfect for research labs, suitable for all types of chemistry labs and ecology studies.

Main Features :

  • Extra-Large Durable Touch-Screen LCD with Backlit provides optimum clear view of readings even at a distance 
  • Dual Channel allows user to measure 2 different parameters and view results on screen simultaneously 
  • High Resolution and Accuracy (up to 0.002 pH Accuracy) for precise measurement 
  • Besides pH and Ion mode, meter reads DO, Conductivity, Resistivity, Salinity, TDS with 0.5% Full Scale Accuracy

  • Context-Specific "HELP" menu prompts and guides user throughout meter's operation with self-diagnosis messages 
  • Advanced Setup Menu allows programmable functions like pH resolution, stability, etc. and viewing of electrode diagnosis - pH slope/offset, previous calibration points. 
  • Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC) for best accuracy under fluctuating temperatures 
  • Automatic Downloading of data into memory or computer via a cable at desired time intervals or whenever reading stabilizes 
  • Expanded Memory stores and recalls up to 1000 Data Sets with Password Protection either manually or on programmable real-time intervals 
  • Built-In Real-Time Clock stamps stored data and calibration data with time & date - meets standards for GLP purposes 
  • High/Low Set Point Alarm alerts once reading outside preset limits 
  • Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC) for best accuracy under fluctuating temperatures 
  • FET (Solid-State Non-Glass) pH electrodes can be used directly without adapter as well as specialty and standard glass pH electrodes 
  • Accepts 2-Cell and 4-Cell conductivity probes and has built-in Replatinizing Circuit 
  • Automatic Salinity and Barometric Pressure Compensation for correction in oxygen solubility 
  • Self-Stirring BOD Probe keeps sample agitated and measurements consistent 
  • RS232 Communication interface for downloading data to a printer or PC for report documentation 
  • Detachable Electrode Stand organizes multiple electrodes neatly and holds them firmly in place
