JBJ C-Scope Refractometer

 
Magnified Dual Scale: This simple integrated feature magnifies the scale over 2x compared to traditional refractometers for easy viewing. - ATC - Automatic Temperature Compensation: Since water temperature effects salt readings, all C-scope refractometers are equipped with ATC to give the correct reading even if your water temperature isn?t. - Accurate & Precise: The C-Scope will not only deliver the most accurate readings, it will do so consistently with the same test sample. - Quick Calibration: The ability to calibrate the refractometer allows you to cross reference your readings without ever have to second guess yourself. - Deep Color Contrast: The C-Scope was designed to provide a clear and sharp dual scale. This is accomplished with a deep color contrast between the blue and white to quickly destinguish your measurement.

Totally worth it for reefers

Installation and Operation Refractometers are fairly simple devices. They measure salinity by how much light bends though it. Once calibrated with RO/DI water, they are very accurate and resuable within seconds (just wipe the window clean with a dry paper towel. Just place a few drops of SW on the window, flip the cap closed, and view your salinity through the eyepiece. Just make sure the room has sufficient light to see the scale in the eyepiece.


Performance vs. Expectations Very durable. There is a thick aluminium body with rubber grips for extra holding power. Eyepiece has a focus so more than one person can use it.


Value for money Totally worth the money.


Customer Support N/A


Liked about it Can be used multiple times in quick sucession.
Requires little SW for a good reading
Can be calibrated to any temperature water


Didn't like a bit pricy but totally worth it.

Great Product

Installation and Operation Very simple to operate. Came with clear instructions for calibration, I went through the process and it turns out it was already perfectly calibrated. It measures salinity very accurately and is super simple to use. Way more accurate than other types of salinity measurements like the floating arm type.


Performance vs. Expectations I was expecting a high quality item, and was not disapointed. The body is all metal, there is a rubber grip and viewport. the optics are very clean and clear making reading it easy to read. The focus is adjustable, making reading easy for people with imperfect vision, or good vision.


Value for money The value was reasonable. It was just slightly more expensive than other options, but since it is well made I expect to never need to replace it.


Customer Support I have had no need to contact customer service.


Liked about it High quality, Easy to read, Automatic temp compensation, clear instructions.


Didn't like The hinge pin for the sample cover rusted even after I cleaned it every time. This dies not affect the operation of the unit though, and I have no suggestion to prevent this.

JBJ Temp Comp Refractometer

Installation and Operation No real set up for the refractometer. Calibration is needed but very simple. Instructions are very helpful and well written. Maintenance is just keeping the viewer clean and salt free


Performance vs. Expectations No real performance on the refractometer but my expectation are definitely met. Nice unit


Value for money The unit is a bit pricey but I feel it was worth it


Customer Support No customer support needed at this time but JBJ is a huge company


Liked about it I liked that the unit comes with a screw driver to adjust and calibrate the unit . I also like that it comes with a polishing cloth the keep the viewer clean and clear.The unit also and a great focus adjustment . my eyes are bad and I can adjust the focus so I don't need my glasses .


Didn't like If the unit is not cleaned with fresh water the salt collects in the hinge on the viewer and gets stiff. Not sure how that could be corrected other than a plastic pin ?
