STs Series pH Sensor

Highlighted Features 

  • Accurate double-junction electrode measuring 0 to 14 pH  
  • Large reference half-cell to reduce calibration frequency 
  • Secondary 0-50°C temperature sensor 
  • 2-wire, 4-20 mA analog outputs compatible with wide range of dataloggers or remote telemetry units (RTU) 
  • Narrow diameter (0.75 inches or 1.9 cm) for groundwater or in-line mounting applications
  • Low power usage

Ranges available:

  • 0-14 pH


The pHionics STs Series™ pH sensor provides accurate pH and temperature measurements to a datalogger or RTU for continuous water quality monitoring.  A large, double junction reference cell provides accurate, stable pH measurements for long periods of time. In addition, isolation, differential amplification, and shielding eliminate background noise without draining the battery of the datalogger or RTU. 

The STs Series goes where other sensors cannot with a 0.75″ (19mm) diameter while a durable, chemical-resistant housing ensures many years in-use.  

All parts, including the cable, are easily replaceable without tools using pHionics patented pHiConn™ System, saving frustration and money.

These features make our pH sensor well-suited for applications such as groundwater monitoring, wastewater treatment, aquaculture, pollution control, and many others.

  • Isolated to prevent ground loops  
  • Signal conditioning to remove background noise  

Low Maintenance

The weak point of pH sensors is their reference solution, which gets diluted by the sample over time.  STs Series pH sensors mitigate this problem by incorporating a reference half cell with a large reservoir.  The high volume, combined with a low-flow reference gel and double-junction, reduces the dilution rate to provide a more stable reference. 

Accurate Measurements

No noise. No nonsense.
