Our Aquasonde multiparameter water quality sonde offers all our standard parameters, along with the addition of 4 x optical or ISE sensor options via the additional auxiliary sockets. The AS-6000 offers all of the accuracy and performance associated with our Aquaprobe range. This sonde features a smaller built in self-cleaning system that is easily removable for maintenance.
With the addition of a large internal memory and internal power, the probe is ideal for remote monitoring deployments. The self-cleaning system will keep the sensors operational for longer, providing more accurate data collection over longer periods.
*Depth measurements available when using a vented cable.
Each Aquasonde is supplied with a Quick Deploy Key. When fitted to the Aquasonde, this unique device performs the following tasks:
All models feature an internal barometric pressure sensor that is used when calculating Depth and percentage saturation of Dissolved Oxygen.
If the Aquasonde is to be deployed for more than a day at a time and accurate Depth and %DO values are required, a vented cable is recommended.
For profiling, dip testing or short-term deployment during which time the change in barometric pressure will be negligible, a vented cable is not necessary.
This option is a termination device for the vented cable that allows a desiccant bottle to be attached and provides a USB port for data retrieval and a visual indication of Aquasonde health, battery and memory condition.
By attaching a PC running SondeLink to the USB port, direct access can be gained to the Aquasonde allowing live data viewing, live data logging directly to PC, retrieval of logged data and full setup, all whilst the AquaSonde is submerged.
The new, smaller central cleaning arm of the AS-6000 consists of a rotating set of brushes that clean all of the connected sensors, including the EC sensor located on the side of the optical DO probe. The cleaning arm, that features a small motor inside, can be easily unscrewed for maintenance, brush replacement and cleaning. Wiping the sensors regularly in this way can increase the deployment duration substantially, even in demanding environments.
inevitably human interaction will be required for calibration and a more thorough clean, even the brushes will become fouled eventually. So with this in mind we have ensured that the maintenance of the cleaning system is extremely quick, simple and cost effective.
