Turbidity sensor (TSD-10) represents a high-accuracy turbidity sensing solution from Amphenol that is designed to be placed remotely on the Turbidity Click board™. The sensor is designed in a circular shape with a diameter of 30mm. It's important to mention that this sensor represents a solution where both phototransistor and optical diode are integrated into one package, allowing the measurement of a turbid water density without any problem.
NOTE: The Click board™ and cable do not come in the same package with this sensor.
Turbidity sensor (TSD-10) measures the turbidity (amount of suspended particles) of a liquid. This optical sensor measures a turbid water density or an extraneous matter concentration using the refraction of wavelength between photo transistor and diode. Using an optical transistor and diodes, an optical sensor measures the amount of light coming from the light source to the light receiver to calculate water turbidity. The amount of light transmitted through the sample is dependent on the amount of soil in the water. As the soil level increases, the amount of transmitted light decreases.
This sensor can be connected to the existing Turbidity Click board™ through a 1x3 2.5mm pitch vertical type connector via an additional 3-wire Male to Male Cable - 15 cm.
