JAZ Housing (2010)

This housing was designed to allow a JAZ spectrophotometer to be used underwater. It consists of a 5-inch Schedule 40 PVC cap and coupler joined by pipe. The door is clear cast acrylic with a double o-ring bore seal, and a tray for mounting the instrument.

This device has a tiny fiber-optic connector to the outside, for attachment of probes. The FO is in a rigid passthrough that goes through the housing door, and then to a semi-rigid 90 degree elbow, and into the instrument. There is a control in the door to tell the instrument when to take a reading.
