HI6421 is a streamlined benchtop meter with a large touch screen display, comprised of a housing and an integrated module designed for fresh and saltwater measurements of dissolved oxygen.

HI6421 includes Hanna's HI7641133 optical dissolved oxygen probe (opdo®) that is based on the principle of fluorescence quenching. An immobilized Pt-based luminophore is excited by the light of a blue LED and emits a red light. As oxygen interacts with the luminophore it reduces the intensity and lifetime of the luminescence. The lifetime of the luminescence is measured by a photodetector and is used to calculate the dissolved oxygen concentration.

The probe is fitted with easy to use Smart Caps (HI764113-1) which lock in place and contain pre-loaded calibration coefficients that are automatically transmitted to the probe. The Smart Cap features an immobilized O₂ sensitive luminophore with rugged insoluble black oxygen permeable protective layer. Over time, the sensor’s optical components can age but are compensated for by using the reference signal to compensate the measuring path. As a result, the sensor provides accurate DO measurements over long periods of time without the need for frequent calibration. Concentration measured. Additional features include built-in methods and calculations for the measurement of BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand), OUR (Oxygen Uptake Rate), and SOUR (Specific Oxygen Update Rate). Pressure compensation is done automatically (built-in barometer) or users have the option to manually enter required value. Pressure is displayed in user-configurable units: mmHg, mbar, kPa, inHg, psi, atm.
