Press Release Summary:
Able to connect to analog input on PhidgetInterface board, 1130 is completely plug-and-play and can be programmed via API supported under Windows, Mac, and Linux. Users can connect pH or ORP glass electrodes via adapter's BNC connector, and on-board DIP switch allows selection of pH or ORP mode of operation. While pH input range is -400 to +400 mV with resolution of 1 pH/54.4 SensorValue, ORP input range is -2,000 to 2,000 mV with resolution of 100 mV/20 SensorValue.
Original Press Release:
The 1130 - pH/ORP Adapter Replaces the 1058 - PhidgetPhSensor
Less costly, more flexible.
CALGARY, Alberta - Phidgets Inc. released today the 1130 - pH/ORP Adapter as a replacement for the 1058 - PhidgetPhSensor. The adapter connects to an analog input on a PhidgetInterface board.
"At $30 this is a great deal for users who already own a PhidgetInterfaceKit. " says Chester Fitchett, CEO of Phidgets.
"Users will also be able to use the 1130 and connect it directly to their own interface boards. It does give them more freedom. " says Bernard Rousseau, Director of Marketing.
Users can connect pH or ORP glass electrodes using the adapter's BNC connector. An on-board DIP switch lets them select pH or ORP mode of operation.

Input Range: -2000 mV to 2000 mV
Input Resolution: 100 mV / 20 SensorValue
Min/Max Error: ±8 mV
Typical Error: ±3mV
"Unlike a lot of our competitor's products that require their users to write some firmware code in order to use their sensor, we are completely "Plug and Play" says Bernard Rousseau, Director of Marketing. "With Phidgets, you plug it in and start using it and when it comes to programming, the user, not us, decides which operating system and which computer language he wants to use", added Rousseau.
Users can program Phidgets using a simple yet powerful and well documented Application Programming Interfade (API) that is supported under Windows (2000, XP, Vista), Windows CE, Mac OS X, and Linux. Users can write programs in Visual Basic, VB.NET, C#, C/C++, Flash/Flex, Java, Labview, Matlab, ActionScript 3.0, and Cocoa.
Phidgets also provides programming examples for all its products to help programmers write their own programs. The API Libraries as well as the examples and the documentation are available at no charge on Phidgets.com.
