What is the warmup time for the instrument?
The warm-up time, specific to the operation of the detector, is between 45 seconds and 3 minutes.  If the instrument has been powered down and allowed to cool, the user should wait the full 3 minutes.  If the instrument is sampling frequently, it won’t cool as much between samples, and therefore, the warm up time is less.  When choosing a warm-up time, the ambient temperature of the water being measured should be considered.  In order to prevent recording measurements before the detector has warmed, the instrument will not output data for 45 seconds after power is applied.
