2. Deployment of S1100 pH Sensor
- Using the Abrasion Block to abrade the surface of the installed transducer as shown in Section 4.
- If in controlled interface mode please refer to http://www.anbsensors.com/s-series-control-interface-user-guide/
- If in autonomous mode attach the S1100 to the Battery Pack via the male/female SubConn cable and connectors (Pin 1 +V, Pin 4 GND). Connect the male/female at both ends of the cable and fasten the red sleeve.
- Once connected the S1100 will emit a ‘BEEP’ as feedback to confirm power supply.
** The user has 4 minutes to place the sensor in the water before it starts to record. At the end of this period the unit will beep again to provide a 15 sec. warning, after which it will double beep and scanning will commence.
NOTE: If the sensor continues to beep during the 4 minute deployment time, please contact your representative at ANB Sensors.
- The array will scan at the preprogrammed rate until removed from the water.
- Once removed from the water, disconnect the Battery Pack and dry both completely and store safely.
3. Disconnecting from Power
- Simply unscrew the red sleeve on the cable and separate the male/female connectors.
- Reattach the SubConn protector to avoid any damage to pins.
- Ensure sensor is completely dry prior to storage.
4. Abrading Transducer
See video at https://youtu.be/UXZGrjHhzlA
- Only abrade the transducer once housed in the S1100 body.
- Abrade the top surface of the transducer – the higher part with 14 black dots – using the abrasion tools in the Sensor Case.
- Be cautious to ensure the abrasion block remains horizontal to the surface.
5. Removing the Transducer
- Only remove the transducer if informed to do so by the program on TerraTerm.
- The software will inform you to do this at one of two times: after data collection, or in the pre-deployment scan check.
Always ensure the sensor is dry before removing the transducer
- Using the spanner unscrew the three large bolts in the titanium plate until they begin to spin freely.
- Pull on the titanium plate to remove the array from the body as illustrated below.
- Using the supplied towel dry the cavity formed by the missing transducer.
6. Replacing the Transducer
Important note: the transducer can only be inserted in one orientation – if solid resistance is felt in the early stage ensure rotation is correct.
- Take the replacement transducer complete with plate, bolts, and nuts from the S1100 case or from a newly ordered part.
- To ensure you always possess a working transducer we recommend you purchase a new spare transducer at this point as they can have up to 8-week lead times.
- Apply silicone grease to the perimeter of the O-rings ensuring a thin and even covering.
- Using the three large bolts as a guide locate the correct rotation.
- If correct location is found the transducer should freely fall into the cavity until the lower O-ring.
- With minimal force, press the transducer in until the bolts contact the S1100 body.
- Using the provided 8mm spanner tighten the bolts until the transducer is flush with the S1100 body. Each bolt should be tightened incrementally.
- If the transducer is not flush with the body, you will not get any data and may damage the lifetime of the array.
