Arc sensors output a robust 4 - 20 mA analog or digital signal. Hamilton offers both powered and non-powered VP8 cables for direct connection to the sensor or M12-8 pin cables for use with the Arc Wi 2G Bluetooth adapter. Arc pH/ORP ECS Adapters will convert the pH signal from digital back to analog for use with bioreactors or transmitters that only accept a conventional pH signal.
Connecting Arc pH to a Traditional Bioreactor?
Taking advantage of the benefits of Arc pH sensors on a traditional bioreactor requires bypassing a controller’s built-in milli-volt sensor input. The introduction of the Arc ECS Adapter simplifies this connection by utilizing the existing bioreactor milli volt input.
Hamilton offers a variety of adapter cables to connect sensors directly to the controller. The bioreactor cable guide is a filterable reference table for many well-known brands of bioreactors on the market.

How do I communicate with an Arc sensor?
What is the Arc USB Power Cable?The Arc USB Power Cable allows direct connection of Arc sensors to a PC or laptop running ArcAir Software. The cable comes with two sensor connectors - VP for direct connection to the sensor and M12 8-pole for connection to sensors with Wi 2G BT Wireless Adapters. The Arc USB Power Cable is not compatible with VisiFerm mA, VisiTrace mA, and VisiPro sensors.
What is the Arc pH/ORP ECS Adapter Cable?The Arc pH/ORP ECS Adapter Cable allows Arc pH/ORP sensors to work with traditional transmitters and bioreactor inputs. The cable converts the digital Modbus signal back into millivolts for use with these devices.
