The PH10 DolpHin® Series pH Sensors and ORP10 DolpHin Series ORP Sensors are suitable for a wide range of pH and ORP measurement applications. They are designed for use with Foxboro® brand 875PH, 873PH, and 873DPX Analyzers, and 876PH Intelligent Transmitters and 870ITPH Transmitters. Some can also be used with 873APH Analyzers. When used with 875PH Analyzers or 876PH and 870ITPH Transmitters, they provide the additional capability of on-line diagnostics to signal the user if any of several common sensor faults occur.

The sensors are available with a choice of temperature compensation and cable termination. They are available with an internal pre-amplifer for use up to 150 m (500 ft) and with a Smart sensor for use up to 100 m (328 ft) from the analyzer or transmitter. The sensors can be mounted to the process in a number of ways. They have a 3/4-inch external NPT connection on both the electrode and cable end. The sensors can be inserted directly into the process line or tank or mounted through a variety of accessories including bushings, tees, flow chambers, and ball valves/insertion assemblies.The sensors are available in both analog and Smart versions.

These industry-leading sensors are already proven in countless installations including chemicals, pulp & paper, all kinds of industry and municipal water/wastewater treatment, metals/mining, and food and dairy applications worldwide.

The Foxboro® brand Model 876PH is a 2-wire loop powered intelligent transmitter that, when used with appropriate electrochemical sensors, provides measurement, local display, and transmission of pH, ORP (Oxidation-Reduction Potential), or ISE (Ion Selective Electrode) concentration. The transmitter outputs a HART digital signal and a 4 to 20 mA analog output. Versions are available for use with both analog and Smart (digital) sensors.

This video demonstrates how to correctly configure a Foxboro® PH10 sensor using the Foxboro® 876PH Transmitter.
