Hach

HQ Series Portable Multi-Parameter Meter

A robust and intuitive range of portable meters, instilling confidence in reporting and accepting a wide variety of probes.

The HQ Series multi-parameter meter was designed specifically for water industry professionals who want to perform a wide range analysis in both field and lab environments.

The HQ Series multi-parameter meter incorporates a truly field rugged, field-ready solution with a large & bright, colour display, all in a IP67 rated handset.  Visual step-by-step operating guidance make using and calibration this instrument easy.  The HQ Series multi-parameter meter secures, simplifies, and accelerates the complete measurement process for field users.

Three models are available:

•  HQ1000 Series:  1 x probe input
•  HQ2000 Series:  2 x probe input
•  HQ4000 Series:  3 x probe input

Over fifty different probe types can be connected to the HQ Series Portable Multi-Parameter Meter (see Optional Accessories tab), so users can customise a single handset to many jobs.

Common probe types include:

• pH
• Dissolved Oxygen (DO)
• Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP)
• Biochemical Oxygen Demand (LBOD)
• Conductivity (EC)
• Temperature (Temp)
• Total Dissolved Salts (TDS)
• Salinity (SAL)
• Nitrate (N-ISE)
• Ammonium (A-ISE)
• Fluoride (F-ISE)
• Chloride (C-ISE)

HQ Series handsets are NOT sold with probes as standard.

Probes must be purchased separately.

 

FEATURES

Performing a successful calibration has never been so simple

Most measuring issues are due to incorrect calibration procedures. With our illustrated, step-by-step on-screen calibration and troubleshooting procedures, water quality professionals can succeed every time.

Deliver your daily activity in just a few clicks

Whether you are at your facility or working in the field, the Hach® HQ Series portable meter ensures your data will be safely transferred via USB or optional Bluetooth*. Take advantage of additional data validation when you connect your field meter to Claros Data Management software.

Sensors designed for every application

We offer standard laboratory and rugged field Intellical smart sensors available with the HQ Series to measure a wide variety of parameters including Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Optical Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Temperature, Conductivity, and pH. Intellical smart probes are automatically recognised by HQ meters, retain calibration history and method settings to minimise errors and setup time. They incorporate proven technology to deliver superior accuracy and response times – even when measuring challenging samples or challenging operating environments.

Peace of mind: Hach service and support will be there for you

Our Technical Support, Field Service, and Central Service Teams work together with over 80 years of electrochemistry expertise to help you maximise instrument uptime, ensure data integrity, maintain operational stability, and reduce compliance risk. Never feel alone when you need support.
