Arc Intelligent Sensor Technology
EasyFerm Plus sensors include the option for Arc intelligent sensor technology within the sensor. The video shows how Arc can save considerable time and cost in all phases of your process.
Connecting 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.

How do I communicate with an Arc sensor?
What is the expected lifetime of my pH sensor?Expected pH sensor lifetime is dependent on the application. Exposure to strong chemicals, elevated temperature, fluctuating pressure, and solid build-up can all impact the sensor life. As the sensor ages, a sluggish response may become more apparent, and will require more frequent calibrations to compensate for this change. The overall health of the Arc pH sensors can be seen using the quality indicator in ArcAir software. Click to learn more about sensor lifespan and expiration in the Knowledgebase article.
What solution should I store my pH or ORP probe in?Hamilton recommends storing pH and ORP probes wet in either Hamilton Storage Solution (Ref 238931) or in 3M KCl solution. Click to see the pH/ ORP Sensor Storage and Regeneration Knowledgebase for more information.
What is A-length and how is it measured?A-length refers to the insertion depth of the sensor. It's generally measured from the base of the PG13.5 mounting threads but can vary with certain styles of sensors.
