Wine pH Meter

designed for wine making professionals Hanna foodcare pH meters are rugged and portable with the performance and features of a benchtop. Eight models are available in this series to measure food, milk, meat, yogurt, cheese, beer, wine, and soil. Each model is supplied with an application specific electrode and cleaning solutions. These waterproof meters comply to IP67 standards and can be easily operated with one hand



Backlit Graphic LCD Display

These meters feature a backlit graphic LCD with on-screen help. The graphic display allows for the use of virtual keys to provide for an intuitive user interface.



pH Calibration

Choose from seven standard pH buffers and five custom values to obtain up to five point calibration and achieve high precision readings with a 0,001 pH resolution and a pH accuracy of ±0,002.




Comprehensive GLP functions are directly accessible by pressing the GLP key. Calibration data, including date, time, and calibration values are stored with logged data for retrieval at a later time.



CAL Check™

Hanna’s CAL Check maintains a history of past calibrations and monitors the pH electrode and buffers during subsequent calibrations for any signs of wide variances due to a dirty or broken electrode or contaminated pH buffers. During calibration, users are alerted to problems should they occur. After calibration, the electrode’s overall condition is displayed as a percentage.



Data Logging

The log-on-demand feature allows users to store up to 200 samples that can later be transferred to a PC with the HI920015 USB cable and HI92000 software.



Auto Hold

Pressing AutoEnd during measurement will automatically hold the first stable reading on  the display.



Quick Connect Probe Each meter features an application specific pH/temperature probe with a quick connect DIN connector to make attaching and removing the probe simple and easy.



Dedicated Help Key

Contextual help is always available through a dedicated “HELP” key. Clear tutorial messages and directions are available on-screen to quickly and easily guide users through setup and calibration. The help information displayed is relative to the setting/option being viewed.



Supplied Complete in a Rugged Custom Carrying Case

Each meter is supplied complete with sensor, calibration and cleaning solutions, beakers, PC software and connection cable, instruction manual, quick start guide, and batteries in a rugged, custom carrying case? The inside compartment of the carrying case is thermoformed to securely hold and protect all of the components?
