Easiest and most intuitive operation

The large full colour display and intuitive programming give you access to all your programmable criteria on a single screen - eliminating scrolling through menus and supporting error-free operation.

Most convenient data transfer and programming available

The AS950 is the only sampler that utilises a USB drive to upload and download data and copy programs from one sampler to another.

Confidence in your sampling process

The program status screen instantly communicates alarms, missed samples and program progress for quick and easy troubleshooting.

Field convertible for compact or discrete sampling

Weighing only 12.7 kg, the AS950 portable sampler is designed for accuracy and convenience. Quickly switch between composite and discrete sampling in the field. Configurable for single or multiple bottle applications, it is specifically designed for use in 18-inch manholes.

Easy maintenance at low cost

Spring-mounted rollers provide long tubing life keeping maintenance costs low. The desiccant and pump tubing can easily be accessed; the replacement is possible without any tools. The rugged see-through pump cover is made for a quick visual inspection.

Alarm: Configurable alarms that show on status screen and are recorded in diagnostics alarm logs. Alarms can be set for system diagnostics and logging such as program end, sample complete, missed samples and full bottle. Channel alarms are setpoint alarms for the recorded measurements (channels), such as pH, level and power supply voltage.
Automatic shutdown: Multiple Bottle Mode: After complete revolution of distributor arm (unless Continuous Mode is selected)
Composite Mode: After preset number of samples have been delivered to composite container, from 1 to 999 samples, or upon full container.
Base Configuration: Portable Compact
Base Type: Compact
Bottle Set: Composite 2.5 gallon polyethylene bottle kit
Certifications: CE, UL
Communication capabilities: USB and optional RS485 (Modbus)
Data logging: SAMPLE HISTORY - Stores up to 4000 entries for sample time stamp, bottle number and sample status (success, bottle full, rinse error, user abort, distributor error, pump fault, purge fail, sample timeout, power fail and low main battery).

MEASUREMENTS - Stores up to 325,000 entries for selected measurement channels in accordance with the selected logging interval.

EVENTS - Ability to store up to 2000 entries in Sample History logging. Records Power On, Power Fail, Firmware Updated, Pump Fault, Distributor Arm Error, Low Memory Battery, Low Main Battery, User On, User Off, Program Started, Program Resumed, Program Halted, Program Completed, Grab Sample, Tube Change Required, Sensor Communication Errors, Cooling Failed, Heating Failed, Thermal Error Corrected.
