SOUND VELOCITY PROFILERS
Shallow Water Profiling Instrument with integrated WiFi and GPS. Self recording or real time output. Internal rechargeable battery and integrated shackle. Ideal for SV and Pressure or CTD profiles to a maximum 500m when outfitted with SV•Xchange or CT•Xchange and P•Xchange sensors. Includes transit case and charger / communications cable.
Base•X₂ presents the best profiler technology of today in a compact, cost-effective package. CTD becomes SVP with the switch of a single sensor. Available in 100m and 500m versions, Base•X₂ retains the size of its predecessor while gaining WiFi connectivity and GPS.
Field Swappable Sensor Heads (Available for Conductivity, Sound Velocity / Speed of Sound, Temperature, Pressure, or Turbidity)
Data Logger / Self Powered
Vertical Profiling (Shallow)
Storm case for shipping and storing Base•X₂ is included
Maximum deployment depth varies depending upon housing material and sensor payload
Known for its rugged performance and ease of use, Minos•X can do more than ever before. Traditionally configured for SVPT or CTD, with new CT•Xchange Minos•X is the smallest combined CTD/SVP on the market. Rated to 1000 m in acetal, and 6000 m in titanium.
Half the size of a Plus•X instrument, Minos•X includes a shackle and sensor cage, as well as an LED status indicator to simplify deployment preparation. High speed 25Hz sampling ensures excellent data resolution. Minos•X can be ordered with 2 additional analog channels or 1 additional digital channel, for use with remote sensors, such as dissolved oxygen.
Field-swappable sensors also streamline recalibration: instead of sending the entire instrument back to a recalibration centre, calibrated sensor-heads can be sent to the instrument. Changing sensors is easy: simply unscrew one sensor-head and replace it with another.
Storm case for shipping and storing Minos•X is included.
BathyMetrec•X is the only instrument to combine the all key features of a bathymetric system: a low drift, high accuracy 0.01% Paroscientific Digiquartz® pressure sensor; a high accuracy time-of-flight sound velocity sensor, for altimeter correction; and the ability to calculate salinity and density and to apply that calculation to true depth.
BathyMetrec•X offers another critical advantage over competitors: the instrument can be field-configured to suit the application at hand. In addition to the instrument’s internal 0.01% Paroscientific® Digiquartz pressure sensor, the user can connect up to four field-swappable sensor-heads. Available sensor-heads include conductivity, time-of-flight sound velocity, temperature, dissolved oxygen, and turbidity. Strain-gauge pressure sensor-heads can also be connected. Sensor-heads can be swapped, in-the-field and on-demand.
BathyMetrec•X offers high-speed 25Hz sampling, ensuring excellent data resolution. External altimeters are also available for integration. Sound velocity, as directly measured by the bathyMetrec•X, is used to compensate the altimeter. Salinity and density are calculated using appropriate equations. Software based look-up tables are provided to ensure density compensation for true depth and position.
