LI-7820 N2O/H2O Trace Gas Analyzer

The LI-7820 N2O/H2O Trace Gas Analyzer offers high-precision nitrous oxide measurements in a low power, portable design—enabling it to easily integrate into survey and long-term soil flux systems. Pair it with the LI-7810 CH4/CO2/H2O Trace Gas Analyzer or LI-870 CO2/H2O Analyzer for CO2 and CH4 measurements at your site.

A combination of several patented technologies with Optical Feedback-Cavity Enhanced Absorption Spectroscopy (OF-CEAS) results in precise and stable N2O measurements, for chamber-based soil flux research.

LI-7820 Advantages

  • Connect to the Smart Chamber or the LI-8250 Multiplexer for collecting, processing and viewing N2O fluxes on site or remotely
  • Functions with a low power, weatherized design that operates on hot-swappable, 8-hour batteries
  • Deploys long term with minimum infrastructure requirements (e.g., simple cover or stand) to create a user-friendly solution for lab and field measurements
  • Connects to a smartphone via Wi-Fi-enabled communications to monitor and view live data without a field computer and works with SoilFluxPro Software for dataset management
