FORT COLLINS, Colo.– In-Situ® Inc. announced today that their industry-leading iOS™ smartphone technology for water quality monitoring is now available on Android™ operating systems. The new VuSitu™ Mobile App expands the functionality of the popular iSitu® Mobile App to Android users. iSitu was the industry’s first smartphone application for environmental monitoring, and transformed the way environmental professionals collected water quality data by eliminating the need for bulky, expensive, handheld meters.
In-Situ released the smarTROLL™ Handheld Instruments and iSitu Mobile App in 2013. The system includes a compact probe with field-tested smart sensors and a weatherproof clip-on battery pack with Bluetooth® Wireless Technology. The release of the handhelds and mobile app pairing allowed for instant access to multiple water quality parameters.
VuSitu offers all the features and functionality of iSitu, but with updated navigation and the new look and feel of the In-Situ brand. Both versions of the mobile app simplify data collection and guide users through configuration, calibration, setup, and data management. Real-time results can be emailed from the field, logged to a mobile device, or exported on the spot. Site information can be consolidated on a mobile device, and data can be tagged with site photos and GPS coordinates. Both mobile applications are free to download, offering users a low cost and simple way to obtain and analyze data using the smarTROLL Handheld Instruments.
Ideal for spot checking and vertical profiling, the smarTROLL Multiparameter Handheldmeasures 14 water quality parameters, and the titanium smarTROLL RDO Handheld measures four parameters. Both instruments feature EPA-approved Rugged Dissolved Oxygen (RDO®) technology for instantaneous DO determinations, and both interface with the iSitu and VuSitu Mobile Applications. Separate battery packs are required for iOS and Android operating systems. To learn more, visit www.in-situ.com.
