Field-swappable Sensor Heads24/09/2009
|AML Oceanographiics in the final stages of field-testing the oceanographic industry's first field-swappable conductivity and temperature sensors. C-Xchange and T-Xchange are added to the devices for sound velocity and pressure, making all sensors of the company field-swappable.|
Each Xchange sensor contains its own embedded calibration, meaning that individual sensor heads can be moved from instrument to instrument without recalibration. This flexibility promises to alter the way that users interact with their instruments.
With C-Xchange and T-Xchange sensor heads, CTDs will no longer need to be returned to a service centre for recalibration. Similarly, individual instruments can be reconfigured on the fly to operate at varying depths or in varying temperature or conductivity environments. Spare sensors can be used on multiple instruments, dramatically reducing the cost of system redundancy. Field-swappable sensor heads mean that any organisation - end user, distributor, agent, or OEM - has the ability to become a virtual recalibration centre, simply by stocking calibrated sensor-heads.

How to Use QPS' Qimera to Validate Processed Point Files
QPS Qimera processing software has been released earlier this year. To demonstrate the capabilities, this video shows how to load processed point files into a Qimera Project. It explains what processed point files are; how to specify the coordinate system of the project and the source files; how to create a Dynamic Surface from processed point files and how to change the dynamic surface and adjust the colour map to aid data editing and validation.
