In the lab, in the field or anywhere you need it
One hand operation
Slim body fits in your hand. Only three basic operation buttons for one-hand operability.
Polycarbonate resin* used in automobiles and mobile phones has been adopted to enhance shock resistance.
*Polycarbonate resin has about twice the shock resistance of conventional ABS resin.
Visible LCD in dark places
Backlight (except D-71) allows reading of measurement values even in the dark.
Waterproof and dustproof
IP67 rated waterproof and dustproof casing.
*IP67: Fully waterproof for approximately 30 min in 1 metre of water.
Uses about 10% of the power compared to conventional meters. With up to 1000 hrs of use*, long periods of field work are possible.
Easy to carry
The compact and ergonomic design is easy to carry and includes a cable winding function for the optional electrode hook attachment.
The casing is made from shock resistant
and extremely durable polycarbonate resin.
With high chemical resistance it is ideal for
According to our research as of June 2013.
Easy-to-view large display shows two measurement items simultaneously
The measurement values are easily visible on a display that is about 40% larger than those of our conventional products. Two measurement values can be displayed on a single screen.
*Models compatible with two item measurement: D-73, 74, 75
Laboratory use capability
The optional electrode stand offers excellent manoeuvrability, allowing the electrode to be moved up and down, and from left to right, easily with one hand.
The polycarbonate resin casing is extremely chemicalresistant*, so can be cleaned using alcohol.
*Resistant to alcohol, weak acid, bases and oil.
Various data processing
The built-in data memory can store 1000 items, and connecting to a computer allows measurement data to be collected. Output to a GLP/GMP-compatible printer is also possible.
*An optional cable is necessary to connect to a computer. The software can be downloaded after user registration.
*The D-71 does not have computer and printer connectivity.
