New Profiling Instrument for Shallow Water - 10/04/2013


AML Oceanographic, Canada, is introducing a new profiling instrument at Ocean Business 2013. The Base•X is an entry-level shallow water logging instrument which offers performance at an attractive price. Designed for profiling in coastal waters, the instrument includes a shackle, a sensor cage, and an LED status indicator to simplify deployment preparation. High-speed 25Hz sampling ensures data resolution.

Like all other X•Series instruments, the Base•X uses XchangeTM field-swappable sensors. The Base•X is available for use with conductivity, sound velocity, temperature, pressure, and turbidity XchangeTM sensors. This means that sensor heads can be shared with other instruments, regardless of instrument size or type. 

Flexibility - of instrument model, of sensor type, and of sensor range - ensures that the right instrument is always available. 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 Base•X’s compact size and compatibility with AML’s XchangeTM sensor-head architecture make it suited for the shallow water hydrographic surveyor.
