Choose from Three Models
Depending on your testing needs, you can select a
DR/820, DR/850 or DR/890 Colorimeter, preprogrammed
to test for at least 20, 50 or 90 parameters, respectively.
All three models include the same convenient features:
auto-wavelength selection, datalogging capabilities and
user-generated calibrations. Refer to the table on pages
3-4 to select the colorimeter that tests the parameters
These durable, hand-held, filter photometers are designed
specifically for the rigors of on-site testing, with rugged
components and waterproof, dustproof, chemical-resistant
housings. DR/800 Series Colorimeters offer simple,
push-button program selection and step-by-step prompts
that guide users through the testing procedure. These
instruments are equally appreciated by experienced analysts
who value test efficiency and by operators who require ease
of use with accurate results.
Advanced Features Add Value
Easy-to-use software offers push-button method
selection, automatic wavelength selection and a
preprogrammed method timer. Result, units, and
parameter name are displayed immediately, with no
countdown. The large digit display is very easy to read.
The DR/800 retains the selected method until a new
method is entered, even if it is turned off and then back
on. This allows a series of analyses to be performed for
the same parameter without reselecting the method.
Datalogging capability includes push-button record
management. Easily store data in the field for later access,
with no delay in testing. The instrument stores up to 99
measurements in an internal, non-volatile memory. Data
stored includes date/time, parameter, program number,
concentration/absorbance/%T, sample number, and
instrument serial number.
Results are displayed directly in units of concentration,
absorbance, or % transmittance. In many methods,
concentration in alternate chemical forms is also available.
For example, phosphate readings are available as P, PO4
and P2O5. Displayed results can be changed from one
form to the next at the touch of a button.
User-program feature allows users to generate up to
10 custom procedures, with up to 12 data points each,
and store them in a non-volatile instrument memory for
Advanced software includes automatic correction for
reagent blanks and the option to fine-tune calibration
curves with the standard adjust feature.
Batteries provide self-contained power for field-testing.
Easy Quality Control
DR/Checkô ABS Standards are the optional choice to verify
the performance of your DR/800 Colorimeter in seconds.
Standards are formulated with neutral density gel that
produces similar absorbance readings at any wavelength.
For all parameters at all wavelengths, running three
secondary absorbance standards will verify your
instrumentís calibration easily, anytime.
Accessories Simplify Data Management
The Data Transfer Adapter (DTA) fits on the colorimeter and
accepts data sent from the instrumentís infrared LED
transmitter. The DTA converts data to a standard RS-232
format and connects directly to a computer or printer. Data
can be printed or downloaded conveniently, after storage or
DR/800 Series Colorimeters are compatible with HachLinkô
Software, a Microsoft Windows compatible application
that links instrument and computer, providing a convenient
means of accessing and managing test data. Information
including date/time, parameter, concentration/absorbance/%T,
sample number, operator identity, and instrument serial
number is accepted and stored in either text or tabular
(spreadsheet) format, and can be easily transferred to
popular spreadsheet or word-processing applications.
