Loveland, CO, June 20, 2013 – Hach Company has developed the next great multiparameter handheld instrument for testing water in the field, the DR 900 Handheld Colorimeter. The DR 900 allows for quick and easy access to your most used testing methods, and is field ready in every way possible.
“The DR 900 is a great improvement on our very successful DR/800 series of handheld colorimeters,” Tom Siller, Hach’s Global Product Manager for Handheld Instruments said. “By improving the user interface and menu selections, we have made it very easy for operators to access the most standard water testing methods in fewer than 4 clicks, which is a huge time saver when testing in the field.”
Time savings is the main driver behind the new DR 900. The colorimeter provides the ability to test 90 of the most commonly tested water methods, while putting your favorite methods at your finger tips. By improving the user interface and method selection options, ease of testing is the standard and not the exception for this instrument.
The DR 900 is made for use in harsh and challenging field environments. Ruggedly constructed, waterproof, dustproof, drop tested and shock resistant, this colorimeter ensures reliability in all conditions. The instrument has a backlit display option for use in low light areas with the push of a button. The DR 900 can store data from up to 500 tests, and comes with a USB port for easy data transfer to a PC or laptop after a day in the field.
