Traditional Sensor Cables
Hamilton sensor cables for traditional pH, ORP, and dissolved oxygen sensors offer a variety of connectors and cable lengths to match your application. These cables transmit the analog sensor output (millivolt or nanoamp) as well as temperature compensation signal if specified with the sensor.
K8 Cables: pH / ORP
S7 / S8 Cables: pH / ORP
T82 / D4 Cables: OxyFerm
VP6 Cables: pH / ORP, Conducell, OxyFerm VP, and OxyGold
Sensor Electrical Connector Examples
K8 connectors are typically used on traditional pH / ORP sensors which lack temperature compensation. These connectors have a two pole design comprised of the center core and outer metallic threaded connection.
S7 & S8
S7 and S8 connectors are typically found on traditional pH sensors which no temperature compensation. They are the same basic design however S8 connectors have PG13.5 mounting threads, while S7 connectors do not. These connectors are recessed thus care must be taken to avoid moisture getting trapped which could lead to a short circuit.
The T82 connector is sometimes known as a D4 connector. It uses a twist lock design to secure the cable to the sensor. These connectors are less common and only found on the Hamilton OxyFerm FDA Dissolved Oxygen Sensors.
This is a common connector used throughout the Hamilton sensor product line. VP is abbreviation for “VarioPin”. The VP designation often includes a number referring to the number of exposed poles on connector head. Example VP6 = 6 pole. VP connectors are fully autoclavable with IP68 protection rating.

Can Hamilton pH and ORP sensors be used with my existing transmitter?In most cases, yes! The output signal for traditional glass membrane pH sensors will work with other manufacturer's transmitters and analyzers. In addition, Hamilton MemoSens pH sensors can be connected to other brands of MemoSens transmitters. Contact Hamilton Technical Support for additional assistance on wiring or cross compatibility.
Can Hamilton conductivity sensors be used with my existing transmitter?In most cases, yes! Transmitters specifically designed for either 2-pole, 4-pole conductivity are generally compatible with Hamilton Conducell products. The transmitter temperature sensor input (PT1000) should be checked to ensure it matches the sensor. Hamilton recommends that the Conducell I inductive conductivity sensor only be used with the H220X transmitter. Contact Hamilton Technical Support for additional assistance on wiring or cross compatibility.
VP Cable Options
What type of electrical connector does my sensor have?There are multiple styles of electrical connectors used with sensors. See each style of connector and learn where they are used to decide which one fits your needs.
