Bluetooth Low Energy Temperature & pH Data Logger
The HOBO MX2501 pH and Temperature Data Logger is designed for long-term monitoring of pH in estuaries, lakes, streams, rivers, and oceans. Leveraging Bluetooth Low Energy® (BLE) technology, the MX2501 pH Logger communicates wirelessly with the free HOBOmobile® app on iOS and Android devices making logger setup, calibration, and data offload quick and easy. A guided pH calibration process on the HOBOmobile app makes an otherwise complicated process easier to follow.
This affordable and compact logger dramatically cuts the time and effort needed to collect field data, while also offering higher resolution data.
NOTE: pH electrodes should always be stored in a storage solution when not deployed.
- Guided pH calibration following on-screen prompts in HOBOmobile app
- Rugged PVC housing for deployment in both freshwater and saltwater environments
- Quick and easy data offload via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to iOS and Android devices
- A water detection system for longer battery life and less maintenance
- Potentiometric pH electrode with a plastic body, gel electrolyte, and double cloth junction
- User-replaceable battery, pH electrode, and anti-biofouling copper guard
- The accuracy of ±0.10 pH units within ±10°C of temperature at calibration

|Full Memory Download Time||Approximately 60 seconds; may take longer the farther the mobile device is from the logger|
|Logger Battery Life||1 year typical at 25°C (77°F) with a logging interval of 1 minute and Bluetooth Always On selected in software. 2 years typical at 25°C (77°F) with a logging interval of 1 minute and Bluetooth Off Water Detect enabled in software. 3 years typical at 25°C (77°F) with logging interval of 1 minute and Bluetooth Always Off selected in software. Faster logging intervals and statistics sampling intervals, burst logging, remaining connected with the app, excessive downloads, and paging may impact battery life.|
|Logger Battery Type||One AA 1.5 Volt, user-replaceable|
