Smart electrochlorinator 200

In collaboration with Cascade Designs, Inc. (CDI), Seattle,WA, PATH worked to develop a prototype of a portable, battery-powered, easy-to-use device that
creates a concentrated chlorine solution using salt, water, and a power source (in this case, a car battery). Iterations of the electrochlorination prototype yielded the Smart Electrochlorinator 200, or SE200. A little larger than a soda can, the SE200 operates using a single push button. Two white lights indicate the device is working and reinforce with users and observers the creation of the chlorine solution. A purple light indicates whether or not enough salt is in the solution, and a red light indicates whether the battery needs to be charged. A seven-minute run cycle produces enough chlorine to treat up to 200 liters of water. The SE200 also has the flexibility to allow a user to easily measure smaller doses to accommodate a variety of water container sizes. [authors abstract]

Abstract

In collaboration with Cascade Designs, Inc. (CDI), Seattle,WA, PATH worked to develop a prototype of a portable, battery-powered, easy-to-use device that
creates a concentrated chlorine solution using salt, water, and a power source (in this case, a car battery). Iterations of the electrochlorination prototype yielded the Smart Electrochlorinator 200, or SE200. A little larger than a soda can, the SE200 operates using a single push button. Two white lights indicate the device is working and reinforce with users and observers the creation of the chlorine solution. A purple light indicates whether or not enough salt is in the solution, and a red light indicates whether the battery needs to be charged. A seven-minute run cycle produces enough chlorine to treat up to 200 liters of water. The SE200 also has the flexibility to allow a user to easily measure smaller doses to accommodate a variety of water container sizes. [authors abstract]
