Seametrics TempHion pH/ORP Logger X-Series Integration Guide
Real-Time Water Quality Measurements
The Seametrics TempHion pH/ORP Logger is a pH/ORP and temperature sensor with built-in data logging. The sensor is compatible with NexSens X-Series data loggers using the SDI-12 communication protocol and sensor interface. A pre-defined script on NexSens X-Series data loggers is able to detect, log, and transmit all parameters available on the sensor. Parameter data is transmitted, in real-time, at a user-specified interval (e.g., 10 minutes) to the NexSens WQData LIVE Web Datacenter. There, data is stored on customizable dashboards with statistics and graphical interfaces for each parameter. Users can download and send data reports via Email, FTP, or an API. Below is information on the settings and wiring required to integrate these sensors with a NexSens X-Series data logger.
Seametrics provides a single model of the TempHion pH/ORP sensor that is compatible with X-Series data loggers.
All default settings on the sensor will work with NexSens X-Series data loggers. Once the sensor is wired or connected properly, a pre-defined script on the data logger will automatically detect the sensor.
In nearly all applications involving NexSens integration, a waterproof UW8 plug will be added to the sensor cable. However, in other applications, when the sensor cable requires protection, it may need a connection to a NexSens UW-FWP or an external junction box.

2. Automatic Sensor Detection
After wiring in the proper signal connections to an X-Series data logger, the sensor can be programmed onto the logger via automatic detection.
X-Series Logger Detection and Script Information
The X-Series data loggers include a pre-loaded script, which must be enabled before detection.

The sensor outputs the following parameters in SDI-12; however, depending on the type of TempHion logger (bromide vs. pH/ORP), the user will need to ignore the additional parameters. For the pH/ORP logger, both Bromide values can be ignored.
3. Setting up WQData LIVE
Once an X-Series data logger has finished a new sensor detection, it will automatically push the sensor configuration to the WQData LIVE web data center. Follow the three articles below to create a WQData LIVE account and a project/site. Then add the data logger to the project using the included claim code.
