The HI208 is a basic affordable pH benchtop meter ideal for educational purposes. Operation is simplified with automatic pH calibration and automatic temperature compensation. This meter also features a built-in 500 rpm magnetic stirrer, extended pH range, dual-level LCD with icons for stability and buffer recognition, and temperature display in either Celsius or Fahrenheit.
The HI208 can be calibrated to 1 or 2 points with a choice of two sets of preprogrammed buffers (pH 4.01, 7.01, 10.01 or 4.01, 6.86, 9.18). The HI208 also utilizes the HI1291D two-in-one pH and temperature probe which allows for automatic temperature compensation with accuracy of ±0.5℃ (up to 60℃).
The compact design of the HI208, makes it ideal for educational use by reducing clutter and utilizing a minimal amount of space on the desktop. The option to switch to battery power also allows the meter to be taken outside the classroom for field studies.
Simple User Interface –Operation is simple with limited features that only require the use of a couple of buttons and readings are easy to view on the dual-level display.
Built-in Stir Bar –Integrated 500 rpm magnetic stirrer.
One or Two-Point Calibration –Automatic calibration can be performed at 1 or 2 points with a choice of two sets of preprogrammed buffers (pH 4.01, 7.01, 10.01 or 4.01, 6.86, 9.18).
HI1291D pH Electrode –The HI208 is supplied with the HI1291D PEI body, single junction, refillable pH electrode with an internal temperature sensor and DIN connector.
Temperature Compensation –The HI208 offers automatic temperature compensation of pH measurements over a wide range from -5.0 to 105.0℃.
Stability Indicator –The HI208 features a stability indicator. A clock icon appears on the display when there is instability in the reading. The clock icon disappears once the reading has stabilized. At that time a reading should be taken or stored.
