Hawk Handheld Display

Take your Chelsea fluorometers into the field with the Hawk hand-held display. The Hawk is a compact, hand-held display unit for UniLux, TriLux and UViLux fluorometers. Hawk provides power and data logging, as well as displaying real-time data for up to 3 parameters.

Data is shown on the colour touchscreen display along with time, location and battery duration. ‘At a glance’ trend analysis is easy with the graph function. You can programme red, amber and green data thresholds and bespoke calibration factors, making it easy to customise the unit for your application. Suitable for use in all weather environments, Hawk requires minimal interaction and can even be used with gloves on!
