pH Analog Controller with Dual Output and Self-Diagnostic Test – HI8711


In stock

HI8711 allows the selection of two set points with two independent outputs for acid and alkaline dosages.

  • Auto-diagnostics to verify offset, slope calibration, and electrode contamination/deterioration
  • Hanna’s exclusive Fail Safe Alarm System protects against risks typical of industrial environments
  • Selectable manual ON, OFF and automatic dosing control for alkaline and acid dosing with indicator
  • 0.2 to 3.00 pH alarm tolerance range


Fail Safe Alarm System

Hanna’s exclusive Fail Safe Alarm System protects against problems caused by power supply failure or signal interruption, which are typical risks in industrial environments. An alarm condition is indicated by a red LED, located directly on the front panel of the controller.

Overtime Dosing Protection

The HI8711 incorporates adjustable overtime dosing protection from 5 to 60 minutes. If dosing exceeds selected time, the alarm will be triggered and the dosing contact will deactivate. This feature can be activated or deactivated.

Output and Input Connections

Each model accepts either a direct input from a pH or ORP electrode or from a transmitter through 4-20 mA input. The instrument also provides ±5V power output and input terminals for amplified electrodes. Moreover, you can choose the output configuration for connecting a recorder or a PLC, between 0-20 or 4-20 mA.

Self-Diagnostic Test

Built-in autodiagnostic functions enable the user to check and troubleshoot any malfunctions. The functions are made via front panel keys to isolate the cause of malfunction whether it is due to pH electrode contamination, internal offset circuit or the amplifier circuit.

Matching Pin Connection

Supports potential matching pin connection to avoid typical problems caused by grounding loop currents, such as progressive damage of the electrode, fluctuating measurements, and poor process regulation.

Robust Design

A removable, transparent splash-proof cover protects the front panel.
