How should I store my SeaFET sensor?

It is crucial to store the SeaFET sensors with clean seawater in the wet cap. If seawater is not available, artificial seawater will suffice. The internal KCl reference gel in the DuraFET will become dry if left out of water, resulting in calibration drift and potentially causing irreversible damage. Do not store the SeaFET with freshwater in the wet cap, as this will change the chemistry of the external reference electrode.

 

If storing or shipping the SeaFET, disconnect the batteries in SeaFETCOM:

  • Connect the SeaFET to SeaFETCom
  • Navigate to Sensor > Advanced > Disconnect for Storage.

 

This will disconnect the isolated battery pack from the external reference sensor to retain battery life.
