About Your eXact® Micro 7+ Instrument
In order to save power, the meter is designed to turn off after 3 minutes (timed from the last button pressed).
Should the meter turn off in the middle of a test, the last stored zero in the meter will remain valid when the
meter is turned on again. Also, the test result is stored in memory for easy retrieval.
The eXact® Micro 7+ meter is controlled by three buttons:
1. ZERO/ON:KHQ¿UVWSUHVVHGWKLVEXWWRQWXUQVWKHPHWHURQ:KHQWKHPHWHULVRQDQGWKLVEXWWRQLV
pressed, it zeroes the sample in the cell. Once the meter is zeroed, this zero value applies to all parameters
and is stored and retained even when meter turns off. However, it is recommended that each new water
sample analyzed is zeroed before testing, to maximize sensitivity and accuracy.
2. MENU: With each press, the MENU button advances through the tests in the following sequence: CL1,
PH2, BR3, AL4, TH5, CU6, FE7, HR8. Each test menu can store up to 20 results. To retrieve the stored
results, go to the desired test using the MENU key. When the desired test is displayed, press and hold
down the MENU key. Continue holding down the MENU key to scroll the stored results for that test, starting
with the most recent result. The meter will display, from memory, the last 20 readings in sequence beginning
with -20, which is the latest result, followed by -19, which is the 2ndODWHVWUHVXOWHWFDQG¿QDOO\ZKLFKLV
the oldest result retained. Only the last 20 readings are stored in each menu. This meter is able to store 160
results in memory (20 in each menu).
3. READ: When pressed once, this button starts the timer for the parameter being tested. When pressed a
second time the meter exits the timer and immediately prepares to colorimetrically measure the sample, and
simultaneously stores the measurement in memory.
If the parameter being measured is below or above the detection range, the display will show “LO” (Under
Range) or “HI´2YHU5DQJHUHVSHFWLYHO\7KLVIHDWXUHLVPHQXVSHFL¿FDQGGRHVQRWDSSO\WRDOOSDUDPHWHUV

Micro 7+ Systems against the AWWA, US EPA , DIN, and ISO reference test methods for chlorine.
Studies show that the eXact® Micro 7+ System repeatedly agrees with an EPA Compliant reference
method greater than 99% (R2= 0.9989, 0 - 6.0 ppm - see page 12). The eXact® Micro 7+ Advanced

calibrations in the meter to be valid for the life of the meter because of the quality, Long-Life LED, the
photo cell, and the software as written into the meter. This is why the meter comes with a 2-Year
Warranty. NOTE: Test algorithms in this meter give accurate results in fresh and salt water (except
Nitrate).
Compliance VHULÀFDWLRQIRU)UHHDQG7RWDO&KORULQH7HVWLQJ
This DPD test system is accepted by most health departments because this test is USEPA (DIN
Standard 38 408 G4, ISO 7393/2) accepted for testing requirements for Free and Total Chlorine. The
Micro 7+ meter uses a wavelength of 525nm; and the compliance requirement is that the colorimeter
wavelength is between 490 and 530nm. The eXact® Strip Micro CL (DPD-1) uses the same reagents
and proportions, and the resulting solution pH is maintained between 6.2 and 6.5 as VSHFL¿HGby
AWWA (American Water Works Association) method 4500-Cl G. It should be understood that the
USEPA does not "approve" commercial DPD delivery systems such as reagent powder pillows, tablets,
dispensers, or eXact® Strip DPD delivery devices. The eXact® Strip Micro CL (DPD-1) for Free
Chlorine, and the eXact® Strip Micro CL (DPD-3) or the eXact® Strip Micro CL (DPD-4) for Total
Chlorine meet your reportable testing requirements because the eXact® Strip Micro CL delivers the
same chemicals in identical proportions (see table below); therefore, the system is compliant. Likewise,
AWWA proportions are followed as required for Total Chlorine measurements using Potassium Iodide.

of Combined Chlorine or Chloramines, convert into Iodine).
PRESS READ AGAIN
Press READ again and the meter will count down and display the next reading. If this
reading matches the previous result, then record this as the Total Chlorine result. This value
is automatically stored in CL1. After testing is completed, rinse cell immediately. Record the
Total Chlorine as the highest value the meter displayed.
*NOTE: Standard Method (4500-Cl G, procedure for total chlorine) requires the reading to
be made after 2 minutes from the time the KI is added. For compliance testing, you must
time the two minutes and then make your measurement. NOTE: From testing in our lab,
water samples above 70°F (20°C), generally, reach a stabilized reading quicker then 2 minutes.
CL1: Chlorine and Iodine react with N,N-diethyl-p-phenylenediamine as it is released from the strip to
form a magenta color, directly proportional to the Chlorine concentration. Ozone, Bromine, and
Permanganate, and Chlorine Dioxide also form this color.

(read carefully and follow procedure closely)
Dip the eXact® Strip Micro HR, Part No. 486672 into the CELL and immediately press READ. This starts the 20
SECOND countdown timer. During this time move the strip in a gentle back and forth motion. Remove and
discard the strip after “1” on the display disappears*. The display will immediately start counting up from
1 to 120 (this extra time allows more thorough color development). At 120 sec, the cursor will move across
the display while the meter prepares to measure the sample. Record result displayed (this result is
automatically stored in HR8). After testing is completed, rinse cell immediately with brush and water.
*Note: Use a 10 second dip time if water temperature is above 113°F / 40°C.
INTERFERENCES: Oxidizers such as Chloramine, Chlorine Dioxide, Bromine, Iodine, Ozone, Bromamines, and Permanganate
will give false positive readings.
*NOTE: When testing outdoors (sunlight), for best accuracy, use the Mixing Cap/Cell Cover when Zeroing and Reading the sample.

Become familiar with the meter and the different tests by reading the instructions carefully.
The Free Chlorine, Combined Chlorine, and Total Chlorine reagents are compliant for meeting
USEPA (4500-Cl G); ISO 7393/2; and German DIN 38408 G4-2 requirements.
Observe the dip time (as required for the test) for accurate results.
7HVWLPPHGLDWHO\DIWHU¿OOLQJWKHCELL with water sample when testing for oxidizers such as
Chlorine and Bromine (Ozone can be measured in CL3 MENU).
Be sure the CELL LV¿OOHGWRFDSDFLW\POXQOHVVPHQWLRQHGLQWKHSURFHGXUH
Rinse the CELL with clean water immediately after completing each test. Some reagents may
stain the CELL if not rinsed shortly after use. It is recommended, after these tests, to use the Cell
Cleaning Brush with water to clean the CELL.
Just before testing, rinse the sample CELL with the sample water several times to get a
representative sample. (Use deionized or distilled water for rinsing if you have a limited amount of
sample).
Store the meter and all test materials out of direct sunlight and away from chemical storage areas.
Minimize exposure of meter and test reagents to heat above 38°C (100°F).
Dry the outside of the meter when testing is complete or before storage of the meter.
When running a DPD-1 Free Chlorine test AFTER a Total Chlorine DPD-3, a Total Chlorine
DPD-4, or a HR Chlorine test, rinsing is very important to remove residual KI, which may interfere.
Each eXact® Strip Micro is valid for ONLY one test. Discard strip after single use in regular refuse
that is inaccessible to children and pets.
Each bottle of eXact® Strip Micro contains the quantity of strips notated on the bottle. Due to the
VWULSVOLWWLQJSURFHVV\RXPD\¿QGRQHRUWZRVWULSVWKDWDUHQRWLFHDEO\VPDOOHURUODUJHULQZLGWK
than the normal strips in the bottle. These should be discarded. Using these strips may give
unreliable results.
Each table supplied has a unique revision number located in the bottom right corner of the table. It
is recommended that you visit www.sensafe.com at least every 6 months to check for any updated
revisions.
The eXact® Micro 7+ Meter is not compatible for use with DPD-1, DPD-3, and DPD-4 powder
pillows, tablets, and liquids available from other manufacturers. Accurate results can only be
guaranteed by using genuine eXact® Micro strips or reagents (reorder information on page 19).
Our lab testing with the Micro 7+ meter has shown that zeroing and measuring of the sample
normally does not require any cell cover for accurate results, except in sunlight. To obtain optimal
accuracy when testing with the meter outdoors (sunlight), use the Mixing Cap/Cell Cover when
zeroing and reading the sample.
Remove batteries when meter is not used for more than a month (Warranty Requirement).
It is recommended that Pool and Spa samples for oxidizers (such as Chlorine) be taken 18 inches
below the surface as follows: submerge meter with open cell facing down 18 inches, and then turn
