SeaFET 1.1.3 Manual

Friday, February 28, 2014
SeaFET-1.1.3-Manual.pdf

What is the response time of the SeaFET™ sensor?

The SeaFET™ samples at a rate of approximately one sample every 3 seconds. When in scheduled mode the instrument wakes up from low power sleep and is ready to take the first sample in approximately 3 seconds.

Can the SeaFET™ pH sensor be deployed with a pump?

Yes, the SeaFET™ pH sensor comes with a flow through cell with fittings that can be plumbed with a pump for flow-through operations. For in situ deployments, we recommend the Sea-Bird 5P submersible pump.
