Arc View Handheld Mobile Sensor Enhances Measurements

The Hamilton Arc View Handheld allows for measurement checks, the reading of measuement values, and the configuration and calibration of sensors in the run-up to performing measurements. The Arc View Handheld can communicate wirelessly and in parallel to the interface of a programmable logic controller with up to 31 sensors at the same time. A maximum of four sensors can be actively monitored on the display and queried for the measurement results. In addition to the conventional numerical representation of the read-out values, the handset also offers the user a graphical representation in real time. For example, fluctuating pH levels can be displayed as a measurement graph. Furthermore, the quality of measurements, as well as the functionality of the sensor, can be controlled.
