  • How to connect sonde and GPS to 650.

Connect 650 with sonde gps.jpg

    • To communicate with GPS:
      • 1. In GPS menu, highlight SETUP -> INTERFACE
      • 2. Set I/O FORMAT: NMEA OUT
  • How to calibrate sonde using 650 unit?
    • (Example of pH)
      • 1. Connecting 650 to sonde, highlight Sonde menu -> Calibrate -> ISE1 pH -> 1-point
      • 2. Immerse the sonde in a buffer of known pH value and press Enter
      • 3. Input the proper pH value for your calibration temperature, and press Enter
    • (Example of conductivity)
      • 1. Highlight sonde menu -> Conductivity -> SpCond
      • 2. Enther the value of the standard used during calibration
      • 3. Confirm the calibration
    • (Example of Dissolved Oxygen)
      • 1. Place the sonde in the calibration chamber with the dissolved oxygen probe in water-saturated air
      • 2. Highlight Sonde menu -> Calibration -> Dissolved Oxygen -> DO%
      • 3. Enter the current local barometric pressure
      • 4. Observe the dissolved oxygen reading until stabilization occurs, and confirm
    • (Example of ORP)
      • 1. Highlight Sonde menu -> Calibration -> ISE2 ORP
      • 2. Immerse the sonde in a solution with a known oxidation reduction potential value
      • 3. You will be prompted to enter the ORP value of the solution
      • 4. After stabilization, press Enter to confirm the calibration
  • How to harvest data?
    • Run sonde from 650.
      • 1. In 650 main menu, highlight Sonde run -> (under 650) start logging
      • 2. Enter a file name and site description
      • 3. 650 starts logging
      • 4. When the study is complete, highlight the Stop logging selection and press Enter
      • NOTE: You have to log the data to 650 memory, not to sonde memory, because GPS and barometer data cannot be logged to sonde memory.
  • How to update data on PC?
    • 1. Connect 650 to stewie in HIP account.
    • 2. Run EcoWatch, click on the sonde icon in the upper tool bar, and set the Comm port number to match your interface.
    • 3. Highlight the Upload to PC selection in the 650 File menu and press Enter to view a list of the files. Highlight the file that you wish to transfer and press Enter.
