Sensorex S465 Series And S420 Series pH/ORP Sensors

The Sensorex S465 Series are a direct replacement alternative to Acu-Trol pH and ORP probes, and the S420 Series replace Strantrol pH and ORP probes. Both series employ a ½-inch NPT connection for easy in-line installation or use with existing Acu-Trol or Strantrol flow cells, without modification. Advanced signal shielding reduces noise for more accurate communication with process control systems.

Underhill Novo 2Wire Converter

A practical new solution for expanding or renovating multi-wire irrigation systems. Compatible with all major controllers, Novo installs alongside the host multi-wire controller as part of a hybrid system and can manage up to 32 new two-wire stations. Rather than digging up the existing landscape to connect a multi-wire system, installers can now set up a compatible Novo hybrid system by connecting a single pair of properly-sized wires from the last existing multi-wire valve to new two-wire valves with decoders.
