The HI208 is a basic affordable pH benchtop meter ideal for educational purposes. Operation is simplified with automatic pH calibration and automatic temperature compensation. This meter also features a built-in 500 rpm magnetic stirrer, extended pH range, dual-level LCD with icons for stability and buffer recognition, and temperature display in either Celsius or Fahrenheit.
The HI208 can be calibrated to 1 or 2 points with a choice of two sets of preprogrammed buffers (pH 4.01, 7.01, 10.01 or 4.01, 6.86, 9.18). The HI208 also utilizes the HI1291D two-in-one pH and temperature probe which allows for automatic temperature compensation with accuracy of ±0.5°C (up to 60°C).
The compact design of the HI208, makes it ideal for educational use by reducing clutter and utilizing a minimal amount of space on the desktop. The option to switch to battery power also allows the meter to be taken outside the classroom for field studies.
Simple User Interface - Operation is simple with limited features that only require the use of a couple of buttons and readings are easy to view on the dual-level display.
Built-in Stir Bar - Integrated 500 rpm magnetic stirrer.
One or Two-Point Calibration - Automatic calibration can be performed at 1 or 2 points with a choice of two sets of preprogrammed buffers (pH 4.01, 7.01, 10.01 or 4.01, 6.86, 9.18).
HI1291D pH Electrode - The HI208 is supplied with the HI1291D PEI body, single junction, refillable pH electrode with an internal temperature sensor and DIN connector.
Temperature Compensation - The HI208 offers automatic temperature compensation of pH measurements over a wide range from -5.0 to 105.0°C.
Stability Indicator - The HI208 features a stability indicator. A clock icon appears on the display when there is instability in the reading. The clock icon disappears once the reading has stabilized. At that time a reading should be taken or stored.
