Multi-parameter Real-time Instrument for ROV Use14/03/2012
|AML Oceanographic has announced Metrec•X, an externally-powered, multi-parameter instrument that enables you to change the instrument’s sensor load, in the field and on-demand. The Metrec•X can accomodate as many as five Xchange sensor-heads on the end-cap, allowing you to configure the focus of your research on an application by application basis. The instrument can log data and/or output data in real-time.|
With Metrec•X, dissolved oxygen can be swapped for turbidity, shallow pressure sensors can be swapped for deep, and temperature range can be extended or tightened, as needed. One single instrument meets multiple deployment requirements.
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.
The Metrec•X offers high-speed 25Hz sampling, ensuring excellent data resolution. The Metrec•X can be ordered with additional analogue or digital channels, for use with 3rd-party sensors.

White Shark Attack on WHOI REMUS Captured on Camera
A 3-metre-long white shark tried to have a REMUS AUV belonging to WHOI for lunch and the action was filmed by the AUV's camera. In this broadcast, WHOI researchers provide background to the attack, in which the shark's jaws exerted a pressure of 2 tons per inch to the ABC news item reporter.
