TriLux Multi-parameter algae sensor capable of monitoring three different parameters in a single probe (combinations of Chlorophyll a, Phycoerythrin, Phycocyanin and Turbidity)

TriLux Multi-parameter algae sensor to monitor Chlorophyll a, Phycoerythrin, Phycocyanin & TurbidityThe Chelsea Technologies Group's TriLux is a low cost, miniaturised, algae sensor capable of monitoring three different parameters in a single probe.

 

Depending on your local environment, you may like to choose from one of the following TriLux specifications. In general we suggest the following:

 

  • TriLux Chlorophyll a, Phycocyanin and Turbidity for a freshwater deployment
  • TriLux Chlorophyll a, Phycoerythrin and Turbidity for a marine deployment
  • TriLux Chlorophyll a, Phycoerythrin and Phycocyanin for a coastal deployment

Background

The TriLux is a low cost, miniaturised, algae sensor capable of monitoring three different parameters in a single probe. Depending on your local environment, you may like to choose from one of the following TriLux specifications. In general we suggest the following:

 

  • TriLux Chlorophyll a, Phycocyanin and Turbidity for a freshwater deployment
  • TriLux Chlorophyll a, Phycoerythrin and Turbidity for a marine deployment
  • TriLux Chlorophyll a, Phycoerythrin and Phycocyanin for a coastal deployment

 

TriLux can be combined with the CTG Hawkhandheld display and logging unit to form the portable ALGAE-Wader Pro system. It can also be combined with the Watchkeeper wall mounted display and logging unit to provide a permanently installed ALGAE-Station Pro system. TriLux is suitable for a number of different applications including monitoring within water treatment plants and for integration within marine CTDs, AUVs and towed vehicles.
