1. CAUTIONS
Users of the ODEON range of portable field equipment should read and understand this document in
its entirety. Failure to comply with the instructions given in this user guide could cause irreparable
damage to the equipment (ODEON, digital sensor and PHOTOPOD).
This equipment must only be used under the conditions described in this user guide. Use under any
other conditions might result in the malfunction of the ODEON-Sensor/PHOTOPOD measurement
chain.
2. GENERAL POINTS
2.1 Product overview
The ODEON range of measuring and data logging equipment can be used in conjunction with one or
more PONSEL MESURE digital sensors to measure the following parameters:
- Temperature,
- Dissolved oxygen as % saturation, in mg/L and/or ppm,
- Turbidity in NTU, FNU or mg/L,
- Conductivity (compensated at 25°C), salinity and TDS-KCl,
- Induction conductivity (compensated at 25°C), salinity, non-compensated conductivity
- pH,
- Redox.
The ODEON unit can also be combined with the PHOTOPOD to operate as a digital field photometer.
In total, the various versions of the PHOTOPOD can measure more than 50 parameters, including:
NH4+, NO3-, PO4, COD, NO2-, Ptotal, SO42-, Turbidity, Fe, Cu, Mn, Cl2, CN-, ClO2, TH, TA, TAC, N2H4,
DEHA, Fe, Br2, Cu, Mn, Mo, SiO2, Zn, Benzotriazole, phosphonates…
Several versions of the ODEON are available:
a)- ODEON CLASSIC: connects to and recognizes a single, specific sensor (oxygen/temperature;
turbidity/temperature; conductivity/salinity/temperature or pH/Redox/temperature).
a)- ODEON OPEN: recognizes all sensors:
- Oxygen/temperature,
- Turbidity/temperature,
- Conductivity/salinity/TDS/temperature,
- pH/Redox/temperature.
and the PHOTOPOD.
The ODEON OPEN is available in two versions:
- a single sensor connection: OPEN ONE
- two connectors for simultaneous measurement with two sensors: OPEN X.
2.2 – Main functions of the ODEON unit
The ODEON portable unit can measure both physico-chemical and photometric parameters.
a)- Automatic recognition of the type of sensor connected, and its serial number.
The calibration coefficients associated with the parameters measured by the sensor, and the
historical data from calibrations performed previously, are stored within the sensor and are instantly
available to ODEON.
The default parameters for each type of sensor are measured and displayed instantaneously by
ODEON.

Automatic recognition of the PHOTOPOD, and of its version and serial No.
b)- Automatic refreshing of the measured value for all the selected parameters.
c)- Operation in photometer mode, with selection of the analysis method (including performing blank
measurements).
d)- Three data logging modes:
- Snapshot recording mode: saves the value of one of the active parameters at the instant
when a keypad command is pressed,
- Automatic recording mode, started manually when a keypad command is pressed,
- Automatic recording mode, programmed by setting the start and end date and time of the
measurement campaign.
The saved data is managed by creating a file named by the user (location of the measurement
campaign, sample name, etc.).
e)- Each measurement saved in a specific file can be viewed via the RESULT menu
either by scrolling through the data or by selecting the measurement number.
f)- Valuable traceability feature: the user’s identity can be specified. This information is added to the
saved data, and notably to the historical data for calibration operations.
g)- The unit switches to standby mode automatically to increase its autonomy.
2.3 – Additional features
a)- High level of equipment protection: IP67 (waterproof) guaranteed when new, prior to any user
intervention on the unit (e.g. to replace the batteries)
b)- The equipment operates autonomously, powered by four AA alkaline batteries or by 4 AA NiMH
rechargeable batteries (provided as an option, with charger cable) or by an external 12V power
source (external power supply cable available as an option).
c)- Saved data can be retrieved from the device (via a USB link) and viewed on a PC after installing
the proprietary software.

3.3 - Description of the sensors
3.3.1 Oxygen/temperature sensor – PODOA-PODOB
The OPTOD dissolved oxygen sensor applies the luminescence-based optical measurement
technology approved by ASTM International Method D888-05.
An oxygen-sensitive layer is illuminated by a diode that emits blue light. The sensitive layer reacts by
emitting red light (fluorescence). The intensity of the emitted light and the delay between the
absorption and emission of this light vary depending on the concentration of oxygen.
This optical technology requires only very few consumables: no changing of membranes, no
electrolyte.
The DO disk, which contains the sensitive material, typically requires changing once every 2 years.

OPTOD sensor maintenance:
The OPTOD sensor must be kept clean, especially the DO disk and its surrounding area. Any trace of
biofilm might induce a measurement error.
After each use, rinse the sensor before storing it.
If any dirt builds up on the membrane, clean the head of the sensor with a little warm, soapy water.
A sponge may be used, but do not use the "scouring" face of a dishwashing sponge.
Then rinse the sensor before storing it.
If the sensor is due to be used again shortly, place a wad of cotton wool, moistened with a few drops
of water, in the storage bag to keep the disk hydrated. If the sensor is stored for longer periods the
disk will dry out. In this case, ensure that the disk is rehydrated sufficiently before use so that the
sensor is fully operational.
Oxygen calibration:
Using a clean sensor, occasionally check the 0% Sat value by immersing the sensor in a sulphite
solution in water (sulphite concentration < 2% by weight). If there is a zero error, perform a complete
calibration of the sensor.
Caution: do not leave the sensor in contact with the sulphite solution for more than 1 hour.
The 2-point calibration is performed using a sulphite solution (for the offset) then, after rinsing and
drying, the sensor’s gain is determined by exposing the sensor to humid, oxygen-saturated air.
Place the sensor over a surface of water without getting in touch with the water.
Temperature calibration:
The temperature sensor is calibrated annually, and is a 2-step process:
- step 1 (offset): the sensor is placed in a container containing a water bath and ice,
- step 2 (gain): the sensor is placed in a medium (air or water in a temperature-controlled bath) at a
known temperature. This temperature may be measured using a certified thermometer.
Changing the stainless steel sieve cap with integrated disk:
If measurement drift is detected while using the equipment, clean and then calibrate the sensor.
If calibration is not possible for whatever reason, change the membrane holder containing the
sensitive material.
Unscrew and remove the sensor's stainless steel sieve, clean the optical window with soapy water
and a sponge, then finish by wiping with a little alcohol to remove any smears on the window.
Then fit a new sieve onto the head and screw it on slowly so that the air inside the sensor can escape
via the threads.
Then perform a 2-point calibration procedure: 0% Sat and 100 % in air.
CAUTION: ONLY remove the sieve if necessary, and screw it back on slowly.

3.3.2- Turbidity/temperature sensor – PNEPA-PNEPB
The measuring principle used by the turbidity sensor is based on nephelometry: a diode emits
infrared light (880 nm) and an IR receiving diode, set to one side at an angle of 90°, detects the
amount of scattered light (standardized measurement). The sensor can be calibrated using a
formazine standard.
This optical technology is very economical and requires very little maintenance and no consumables
(simply gentle cleaning of the optical components).

NTU sensor maintenance:
The NTU (Nephelometry Turbidity Unit) sensor must be kept clean, especially the head and
surrounding area containing the optical fibers. Any trace of biofilm or dirt might induce a
measurement error.
After each use, rinse the sensor before storing it.
If any dirt builds up on the sensor's head, clean it off with a little warm, soapy water. A sponge may
be used, but do not use the "scouring" face of a dishwashing sponge.
Then rinse the sensor before storing it.
Turbidity calibration (in NTU):
The NTU sensor is an optical sensor which requires very little calibration. Using a clean sensor,
occasionally check the 0 NTU value by immersing the sensor in an opaque bottle containing bubblefree distilled water. If there is a zero error, perform a complete calibration of the sensor.
This procedure requires a formazine solution whose concentration lies at the mid-point of the
measurement range being calibrated. This solution is prepared from a 4,000-NTU stock solution.
Use a 200 ml volumetric flask when preparing the solutions. Add the required volume of formazine
(refer to the table below) and make up to 200 ml with distilled water.
Formazine solutions with concentrations of less than 1,000 NTU degrade fairly quickly; do not keep
the solution for more than a few days.
The 2,000-NTU solution can be kept for 2 to 3 weeks in a fridge in an opaque bottle.

Turbidity calibration in mg/L:
The calibration of the turbidity sensor in mg/l involves performing a check at 2 points: 0 mg/L in
bubble-free distilled water, and a second point in a sample of sludge representative of the medium
to be measured.
For the second point, the sensor records its measurement. The sample is then sent to the laboratory
for a formal determination of the turbidity (dry weight).
As soon as the result of the laboratory analysis is entered, the sensor resets its calibration
automatically based on the measured value of the sludge.
Up to 10 calibration operations can be saved, and the coefficients specific to the site at which a
calibration was performed can be selected.
Temperature calibration:
The temperature sensor is calibrated annually, and is a 2-step process:
- step 1 (offset): the sensor is placed in a container containing a water bath and ice,
- step 2 (gain): the sensor is placed in a medium (air or water in a temperature-controlled bath) at a
known temperature. This temperature may be measured using a certified thermometer.

3.3.3- Conductivity/temperature sensor – PC4EA-PC4EB
The operation of the sensor is based on 4-electrode conductivity technology: an alternating current
at constant voltage is set up between a pair of graphite primary electrodes. The secondary
electrodes, made from platinum, adjust the drive potential at the primary electrodes to compensate
for any fouling. The voltage measured between the primary electrodes varies depending on the
resistance of the medium, and thus the conductivity.

C4E sensor maintenance:
The C4E sensor uses a 4–electrode conductivity measuring principle, and care must be taken to
maintain these 4 electrodes in optimal working condition. After each use, rinse the sensor before
storing it.
To clean the electrodes (made from graphite and platinum), insert and retract an abrasive strip
through the slot in the sensor, under a stream of running water.
Conductivity calibration:
The calibration of the conductivity sensor is a 2-step process:
- step 1 (offset): the sensor is exposed to air,
- step 2 (gain): the sensor is placed in a buffer solution of known conductivity.

3.3.4- pH/Redox/temperature sensor – PPHRA-PPHRB
PONSEL's two-part pH/Redox/T°C sensor consists of an electronics part and a "consumable" part. The
sensor is delivered with the two parts assembled, and when the standard gel is used up only the
consumable part needs to be changed.
The pH and Redox is measured by an Ag/AgCl reference electrode in a "PLASTOGEL"® KCl-saturated
plasticized electrolyte.
The “Plastogel”® electrolyte is in direct contact with the external environment without interposition
of capillary or porous material. There is therefore no risk of fouling or deactivation of the reference.
The electrode used to measure the pH is a pH-sensitive glass bulb (made from special glass) welded
to the end of a crystal tube, and the electrode for Redox measurements is a platinum disk.
The temperature is measured via an NTC thermistor inserted in a stainless steel sheath.

3.3.5- CTZN inductive conductivity sensor - PCTZA.
The operation of the sensor is based on an inductive measurement principle: a ring-type coil is
excited at a fixed frequency and the response is retrieved on a second coil, linked to the excited coil.
The coupling between the coils varies depending on the conductivity of the conducting solution
present.
This sensor is not sensitive to fouling and is suited to measurements in contaminating media such as
wastewater networks, seawater, etc.
This sensor requires an external power source, such as a 12 V battery or a 5-28 V power supply, and
cannot be supplied directly by the ODEON unit.

4. USING THE ODEON
4.1 – Power supply
4.1.1-Restrictions on battery type
The user must never combine different types of batteries, or connect a charger to an ODEON fitted
with alkaline batteries: this could lead to a fire or explosion.
4.1.2-Changing the batteries
Change flat 4 AA alkaline batteries in a clean, dry room, so as not to contaminate the inside of the
unit.
Check that the polarity of the batteries fitted matches the polarity indicated in the battery
compartment.
When closing the unit, the operator should check that:
- the power cable linking the battery holder to the electronic card is not caught,
- the seal between the two elements of the unit is fitted correctly,
- that all 8 original screws are tightened firmly to compress the seal between the two elements of the
unit.
If these instructions are not followed, the ODEON may malfunction or allow the ingress of fluids.
The user must also regularly check the batteries to prevent the equipment from being damaged by
discharged batteries.
4.1.3- Using rechargeable batteries
The ODEON may be fitted with 4 NiMH rechargeable batteries which can be recharged directly inside
the unit, but only by using the cable provided by the manufacturer. The unit will warm up slightly
during charging.
Note that the charger provided for the ODEON is not sealed. This accessory cannot be used in wet
conditions (when measuring in the field), but is compatible with use in a laboratory.
Similarly, the ODEON-PC USB link should only be used in an office. The user must take responsibility
for any problems encountered when transferring data to a portable computer in the field (in wet or
damp conditions).
4.1.4- Prolonged storage or use
NiMH batteries discharge slowly when not in use. Before starting a measurement campaign, users
should check the battery status indicated by the icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen. If the
ODEON is stored for a long time the rechargeable batteries will discharge; they must be recharged
regularly so that they do not drop below the minimum charge level.
If the output voltage of the alkaline or NiMH batteries is too low, the screen will flash and shortly
afterwards the unit will shut-down automatically. However, the data saved will be preserved.
When preparing for a long campaign of measurements, it is a good idea to fit new alkaline batteries
or to fully charge the NiMH batteries.
Users can also connect the ODEON to an external 12V power source via the cable provided as an
option.

4.4. Using the unit with digital physico-chemical sensors.
4.4.1- SCAN function
The ODEON unit can display and save the measurements made by the sensors connected to the unit,
however, the unit must first identify the sensor.
This essential operation is performed by running a SCAN of the MODBUS network. ODEON polls, oneby-one, the MODBUS network addresses. Each active and compatible sensor is then included in
ODEON's database of sensors.
- RUNNING a SCAN:
On the main MEASURE screen, use the arrow buttons to select
the SCAN short-cut button then press on OK; the SCAN
MODBUS NETWORK window then opens.
While the unit SCANs, the various addresses are displayed on
the screen.
To stop the SCAN, press on ESC.
If ODEON does not detect a sensor, or the SCAN is stopped
before the address of the connected sensors can be detected,
then the message indicated opposite appears.
When an active sensor is identified, a new line appears with its
address and description. Once all the connected sensors have
been identified, the user can abort the SCAN with ESC.

4.4.7- Calibrating the parameters.
The user can calibrate a number of parameters, depending on the type of sensor plugged into
ODEON
ODEON differentiates between “main parameters”, which can be calibrated, and “secondary
parameters” that are calculated from the main parameters and the compensation data
(temperature, pressure, salinity).
Thus, ODEON can calibrate the following main parameters:
- temperature,
- oxygen as a % of saturation,
- conductivity in µS/cm (C4E 4-electrode sensor) or in mS/cm (CTZ inductive conductivity sensor),
- turbidity in NTU,
- turbidity in mg/L,
- pH,
- Redox.
Moreover, the user can adjust the atmospheric pressure sensor integrated into the ODEON unit.
The table below indicates the calibration steps associated with each parameter:

4.5.6- Photometric analysis.
Recommendations: Before performing a BLANK measurement or making a measurement of a
sample, ensure that the cells used are clean and transparent.
Check that the glass is free from smears, dust, fingermarks, etc. If necessary, clean the glass, then
check its transparency.
General:
The temperature of the samples must be between 15 and 25 °C.
The PHOTOPOD digital photometer is fitted with light-emitting diodes.
The photometer is zeroed, in the presence of a sample of water, simply by pressing on the button.
Once the test parameter has been selected using the arrow buttons, the corresponding LED is
selected automatically.
 If the configured measurement range is exceeded (message: “MEASUREMENT > MAX”) then
before measuring again, dilute the water sample with dilution water (e.g.: as a 1 in 10 dilution). The
concentration must subsequently be multiplied by the dilution factor.
 The outer surfaces of the photometric tubes must be clean and dry.
 The measurements must always be made with the black protective cover correctly positioned over
the photometric tube.
a- Performing a blank measurement.
Once the required analysis method has been selected, perform
a BLANK measurement.
Half-fill a photometric cell with the water to be analysed,
screw on the cap and insert the cell in the PHOTOPOD’s
measuring well. Then fit the black protective cover over the
tube and press on the right arrow to start measuring.
The message: “BLANK MEASUREMENT” indicates that the
blank measurement is in progress.
If the protective cover is not fitted, the ODEON will alert the
user by displaying the message: “FAILURE” then “PUT THE LID”.
Once the cover is in place, press again on the right button to
start the blank measurement.

6.1.1 OPTOD sensor maintenance.
General description
Oxygen: luminescent membrane sensitive to the oxygen level in the medium being analyzed.
Gaseous exchange between the membrane’s material and the medium.
Temperature: NTC thermistor
Materials
Precautions
Stainless steel 316L, Polyamide, silicone, quartz; polyurethane sleeve around cable.
The membrane is sensitive to:
- chemicals (organic solvents, acids, hydrogen peroxide).
- mechanical stresses (impacts, abrasion, tearing).
When measuring, check that bubbles do not become trapped under the membrane.
If chlorine is present, the quality of the measurement will be impaired (overestimate of the
level of dissolved oxygen).
When immersing the sensor in the medium to be measured, wait until the sensor's
temperature has stabilized before taking the reading.

0 to 50 °C
After each use, rinse the sensor and the membrane carefully in clean water.
If deposits such as biofilm or sludge persist, wipe the membrane carefully with a soft cloth or
absorbent paper.
Caution: only unscrew the sieve cap containing the DODISK when replacing the disk.
If the sieve cap has to be replaced, screw the new sieve cap on slowly to allow the air to
escape.
Keep the membrane hydrated using the protective bag and a dampened absorbent wad of
material (e.g. cotton wool)
- 10°C to + 60°C
Using a clean sensor, occasionally check the 0% Sat value by immersing the sensor in a
sulphite solution in water (sulphite concentration < 2%). If there is a zero error, perform a
complete calibration of the sensor.
Caution: do not leave the sensor in contact with the sulphite solution for more than 1 hour.
The 2-point calibration is performed using a sulphite solution (for the offset) then, after
rinsing and drying, the sensor’s gain is determined by exposing the sensor to humid, oxygensaturated air.
The calibration of the temperature sensor is a 2-step process:
- step 1 (offset): the sensor is placed in a container containing a water bath and ice,
- step 2 (gain): the sensor is placed in a medium (air or water in a temperature-controlled
bath) at a known temperature. This temperature may be measured using a certified
thermometer.

6.1.2 NTU sensor maintenance.
General description
Turbidity: nephelometric measurement by IR diffusion (wavelength: 880 nm) at 90°.
Temperature: NTC thermistor
Materials
PVC, PMMA, POM-C, Polyamide; Polyurethane sleeve on cable
Precautions
The optical windows are sensitive to:
chemicals (organic solvents, strong acids and bases, hydrogen peroxide, hydrocarbons).
mechanical stresses (impacts, abrasion).
Measurement/Interference
When in use, the sensor must not come into contact with the sides or bottom of a container. Maintain a
minimum distance of 2 or 3 cm between the sides and the sensor (depending on the concentration of the
medium).
Bubbles on the optical components can interfere with the measurements.
When immersing the sensor in the medium to be measured, wait until the sensor’s temperature has
stabilized before taking the reading.
If measurements are being made in a range between 0 and 20 NTU, or if the sensor saturates (a value of
9999), it is advisable to use the protective sieve to avoid interference from edge effects, sunlight, etc.).
Operating temperature
0 to 50 °C
Maintenance
After each use, rinse the sensor carefully in clean water.
If deposits such as biofilm or sludge persist, clean the sensor carefully with soapy water and wipe the
head with a soft cloth or absorbent paper.
Storage
Place the protective bag over the head of the sensor to prevent the optical part from being scratched.
- 10°C to + 60°C
The NTU sensor is an optical sensor which requires very little calibration. Using a clean sensor,
occasionally check the 0 NTU value by immersing the sensor in a clean, bubble-free water. If there is a
zero error, perform a complete calibration of the sensor (over 1 or 4 measurement ranges).
This procedure requires a formazine solution whose concentration lies at the mid-point of the
measurement range being calibrated. This solution is prepared from a 4,000-NTU stock solution.
Use a 200 ml volumetric flask when preparing the solutions. Add the required volume of formazine (refer
to the table below) and make up to 200 ml with distilled water.
Formazine solutions with concentrations of less than 1,000 NTU degrade fairly quickly; do not keep the
solution for more than a few days.
The 2,000 NTU solution can be kept for 2 to 3 weeks in a fridge in an opaque bottle.

Turbidity calibration (in mg/L) When a turbidity sensor is used to measure in a range whose units are mg/L, then the sensor must be
calibrated using a field sample.
A 2-point calibration is performed:
- 1 offset using distilled water (0 mg/L),
- 1 gain using a sludge sample: immerse the sensor in the sample, with stirring, and log the theoretical
value measured by the sensor. Using the same sample, analyze the dry weight in a laboratory in
accordance with standard EN 872 within a range from 0-500 mg/L, and in accordance with standard
NF T 90 105 2 if the concentration is > 500 mg/L.
Temperature calibration
The calibration of the temperature sensor is a 2-step process:
- step 1 (offset): the sensor is placed in a container containing a water bath and ice,
- step 2 (gain): the sensor is placed in a medium (air or water in a temperature-controlled bath) at a
known temperature. This temperature may be measured using a certified thermometer.

The electrode that measures the Redox potential is sensitive to sulphides, which are adsorbed onto the
platinum.
When immersing the sensor in the medium to be measured, wait until the sensor’s temperature has
stabilized before taking the reading.

After each use, rinse the sensor carefully in clean water.
pH: If deposits such as biofilm or sludge persist, immerse the sensor in a cleaning solution (PF-CSO-C00010) for a few hours and rinse with plenty of water before use.
Do not use a soft cloth or absorbent paper since the glass bulb is extremely sensitive to scratching.
Redox: clean the platinum disk using fine, wet abrasive paper (such as P600).
Keep the glass membrane hydrated by adding a few drops of storage solution (PF-CSO-C-00005) to the
protective bag, or using a solution at pH4. Rinse the glass bulb with plenty of water before use. If the
sensor is stored in dry conditions, soak the sensor in a pH4 buffer solution for 12 hours before use.
The protective bag absorbs direct impacts on the head of the sensor.
The platinum electrode is kept under dry conditions.
0°C to + 60°C
Using a clean sensor, perform a 2-point calibration of the sensor (offset and gain, e.g. at pH7 and pH4).
Using a clean sensor, check the electronic 0 by exposing the sensor to air, and check a second point
using a buffer solution at 240 mV (or 470 mV).
The calibration of the temperature sensor is a 2-step process:
- step 1 (offset): the sensor is placed in a container containing a water bath and ice,
- step 2 (gain): the sensor is placed in a medium whose temperature is stabilized and known. This
temperature may be measured using a certified thermometer.
In order not to damage the electronic part of the sensor, hold the cartridge in one hand and unscrew
the connecting ring using the other hand. Remove the used cartridge and insert the new cartridge
before re-tightening the connecting ring.
