The EXO Conductivity & Temperature Sensor is a digital smart sensor featuring welded titanium construction and wet-mateable connectors. A new metrology system specifically for EXO offers improved range of conductivity and increased accuracy of temperature sensors to better address oceanographic challenges. This combination sensor provides measurements for water temperature and conductivity as well as calculated parameters like specific conductivity, salinity, resistivity, and total dissolved solids (TDS).
Note: This product is intended for long-term monitoring applications in fouling environments. This sensor must be installed into an EXO Sonde with central wiper to function. Does not function on its own.
For sampling and profiling applications, please see our standard (C/T) sensor.
In long-term water quality monitoring, biofouling is public enemy number one.
Biofilms, barnacles, and algal growth are common culprits of poor data quality, clogging up conductivity cells and coating sensor optics. While EXO2’s Central Wiper can mechanically remove biofouling from other sensors to maintain data integrity over long deployment periods, the anatomy of a standard conductivity & temperature sensor makes this anti-fouling technique ineffective...until now.
Introducing the EXO Wiped Conductivity & Temperature sensor from YSI, designed with and engineered for compatibility with EXO2’s Central Wiper.
|Save money by reducing the number of site visits each year. Pays for itself in under a year depending on application.|
|Lower the cleaning & maintenance requirements for conductivity sensors, and spend less time with anti-fouling screens and removing the build-up of hard growth.|
|Improve the reliability of your conductivity sensor, now with non-metallic electrodes. Leverage the flexible, plug-and-play sensor architecture of an existing EXO2 sonde with this user upgradeable solution.|
|Improve the representativeness of your conductivity data by avoiding stagnant readings and reducing the impact of micro-environments.|
|Reduce the need for post-processing data and spend less time manually adjusting for fouling-related sensor drift.|
|Prevent common types of fouling from impacting your valuable data, including; particulates, algae, barnacles, and trapped gasses.|
Compact and Accurate
The EXO platform offers a completely new approach - highly accurate, quick-response sensors in a small, easy-to-deploy and easy-to-maintain package. Gone are large and complicated sensor arrangements requiring complex integration.
All EXO sensors have onboard memory and processing, allowing users to easily calibrate and configure sensors at one location and distribute to various field sites. Smart sensors are auto-recognized from any port of an EXO sonde making sensor payloads interchangeable and completely customizable.
Wet-mateable connectors allow for swaps in wet conditions, while the smart ports shut down any excessive current draws to prevent damage.
