To help complete our product portfolio for online analytical water sensors, we are proud to announce our new distribution agreement with the introduction of TriOS (Germany) optical sensors to Australia!


Begun as a University spin-off in 1998, TriOS develops and produces optical sensors (& associated equipment) for water quality analysis.  The reagent-free sensors are used in environmental monitoring and process control in a broad range of applications such as surface / drinking water, marine research, industrial and wastewater treatment (inlet & outlet).


TriOS factory (Germany)

At their German facilities, in-house production of nearly all components allows TriOS to put great importance on quality control and sustainable manufacturing.  Their efforts were recognised when entered as the German representative for Environmental & Corporate Sustainability at the European Business Awards 2015 / 2016 (link).

The TriOS family (link) covers a range of parameters with online photometers, fluorometers, radiometers and other sensors.  Typical applications include the measurement of nitrogen (nitrate & nitrite), BOD equivalent (BODeq), CODeq, SAC254, radiance / irradiance, colour, concentration of oil in water and algae such as cyanobacteria (blue-green algae).

Replacing expensive and time-consuming lab tests, the OPUS is a new generation of optical sensor for online analysis of nitrogen (nitrate / nitrite) and carbon compounds (CODeq & BODeq).  Manual maintenance is reduced by the use of revolutionary nanocoated (hydrophobic) lenses and built-in air cleaning.  The sensors reagent-free spectral measurement allows for field mounting of the OPUS to deliver real-time, continuous and reliable information for automated control.


All products are supported with a full range of mounting alternatives such as process mount (floats & flowcells), inline and remote operating solar powered buoys.  The innovative TriOS G2 interface allows sensor configuration either through one of the TriOS centralised controllers or remotely over any web browser.  Communication outputs include analogue (4-20mA) and digital Modbus (Ethernet or Wi-Fi).
