I am trying to decide between a Yosemitech 511-A turbidity sensor with brush, or a 510-B brushless sensor.
I have read that there have been some issues with setting the interval time for the 511 brush with a typical wingshield with 9v polou step up. I see that Anthony had some success with a wiring harness and a boost converter module. Can anyone elaborate? Could I get the brush working with a typical 9v step up/wingshield?
Another question worth pondering is whether brushed sensors are desirable over un-brushed sensors in lotic environments? Perhaps the difference in performance is more apparent in lentic systems where fouling is more likely to occur?
Has anyone compared the performance of brushed vs un-brushed sensors?
