Hanna Instruments - Hanna Lab - HALO FC2142 pH Meter for Beer
Our HALO for home and craft beer makers has durable titanium body, high temperature glass sensor, and an extendable cloth type junction for renewable electrode life. All readings are transmitted directly to your Apple or Android device or the edge®blu.
Take laboratory grade pH and temperature measurements using your smart phone or tablet.
Easily connect to the Hanna Lab App at the press of a button via Bluetooth wireless technology.
Group your data by time or notation. Email it for storage or share it with friends or colleagues.

The HALO® Wireless Beer pH Meter incorporates Bluetooth® Smart technology with an application-specific design. Several features that make it ideal for measuring the pH in beer, mash, and wort.
High Temperature Glass Formulation
High Temperature (HT) glass can stand up to the effects of elevated temperatures leading to longer probe life.
Renewable Cloth Junction
The FC2142 features a cloth junction. When clogged, simply clear the junction by simply extracting 1/8” of the junction from the electrode to expose a new portion, resulting in a renewed junction.
The titanium body offers increased durability that is ideal for rough environments.
Display of pH and temperature updated every second. Readings are automatically saved to a history file every hour, limited only by the available memory on the device.
Fluid, Dynamic Graphing
Measurements can be displayed alone on the display, with tabulated data, or as a graph. The graph can be panned and zoomed with pinch-to-zoom technology for enhanced viewing.
GLP (Good Laboratory Practice)
Displays date and time of current calibration, offset, and average slope, along with calibrated buffers, mV values, temperature and slopes between each buffer.
Calibration Reminder & Measurement Alarms
The Hanna Lab App alerts you when HALO needs calibration or if a measurement threshold is exceeded.
Log & Share Data
Saved log files may be annotated with measurement-specific information. Data is easily shared via email in CSV format.
Help & Tutorials
Demo mode helps you explore features of the Hanna Lab App. General app information, HALO information, pH tutorial, maintenance tutorial, and contact information are available in help.
