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.

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.
