Our Aquasonde multiparameter water quality sonde offers all our standard parameters, along with the addition of 6 x optical or ISE sensor options via the additional auxiliary sockets. The water quality probe, offer all of the accuracy and performance associated with our Aquaprobe range, with the addition of a large internal memory and power meaning that the probe can be deployed for long term monitoring deployments in surface water, ground water, aquaculture, lake or estuarine monitoring applications.
*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 central cleaning arm of the AP-7000 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 main brush, that resides in the home position, cleans each of the sensors multiple times before moving on to the next. When it returns to the home position it also cleans itself by scraping the brush against the sharp edges of the home position. Cleaning 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.
