Aqua TROLL 500 from In-Situ

What if the same sampling unit could be used to spot-check a tank or conduct long-term monitoring at remote sites? The Aqua TROLL 500 from In-Situ can do both.

This multiprobe enables wireless data collection when used as a handheld, plus easy integration with control systems and telemetry for long-term installation. With interchangeable sensors, it replaces multiple instruments and saves time in the field to reduce overall monitoring costs. Highly stable sensors need minimal maintenance and calibration, streamlining reliable data collection.

“Our goal with the Aqua TROLL 500 is to help bring sampling and monitoring into the mobile era,” says Ashley Steinbach, In-Situ product manager. “For us, it’s about helping people waste less time on data collection, so they can spend more time actually making decisions with their data.”

Autoconfiguration and fast sensor response speed up sampling, while automated data collection eliminates the need to record data in field logs. The VuSitu Mobile App records data directly from the probe to a mobile device when using the instrument as a handheld. For long-term monitoring, the HydroVu platform provides constant online data access. Whether a project requires short- or long-term monitoring, the Aqua TROLL is suited for the job.

“It connects right into telemetry systems for long-term monitoring,” Steinbach says. “Also, it comes with wireless-enabled data collection for surface water spot-checks.”

The sonde is designed with ultrastable, interchangeable wet-mateable sensors, for lower total cost of ownership. Like all of In-Situ’s high-performance probes, the Aqua TROLL 500 is built for reliability and ease of use. A convenient anti-fouling wiper and corrosion-resistant housing help protect data quality in harsh conditions, with simplified calibration and setup to minimize user error. Streamlined data collection and automatic environmental compensation mean zero post-processing. The probe easily integrates with control systems and telemetry, as well as our online HydroVu data management platform for remote monitoring.

The Aqua TROLL 500 works in a wide range of applications such as surface water spot sampling and profiling, remote monitoring via telemetry, long-term drinking water, wastewater or stormwater monitoring, aquaculture and for wired or wireless water-quality networks. The product family is designed to give scientists and engineers more flexibility to formulate sampling and monitoring programs that fit their specific needs and budget requirements.

“It’s one of the most flexible probes we make,” Steinbach says. “It is designed to help trim monitoring costs and time in the field.”
