The Salinity Sensor precisely measures the total dissolved salt content of ocean or brackish water.

ORDER CODE: SAL-BTA Category

The Salinity Sensor easily and precisely measures the total dissolved salt content in an aqueous solution. Measure water with a wide variety of salinities, from brackish water to ocean water, and even hyper-saline environments. You can also study how salinity affects buoyancy or monitor salinity values in estuaries where fresh water mixes with ocean water.
