EXO2 Sonde

If you cannot find the part number in the documentation please provide detail. Specific to this item, it could include part number or application detail, (ex. 20 meters of cable, or 20 litres of volume)

The new EXO2 sonde, with 6 ports and a central anti-fouling wiper. Parameters include: Temperature, Conductivity, Depth, Dissolved Oxygen, pH, ORP, Total Algae (Blue-green Algae and Chlorophyll), Turbidity, and fDOM, plus 4 calculated parameters.

EXO represents the intersection of Environment and Observation with a new generation of monitoring technology.

Out of the box, EXO is ready to go with:
• Pre-installed sensors for easy set-up of factory-configured systems
• Wireless communication reduces number of field cables
• On-board diagnostics mitigate set-up and configuration errors
• On-board logging of meta data for all system functions

Applications
• Long-term continuous monitoring
• Vertical profiling
• Underway monitoring
• Integration into remote monitoring platforms
• Source Water monitoring
• Ground Water monitoring
• Stormwater monitoring
• Dredging
• Spot sampling

A smart, field-ready water monitoring platform. EXO offers a wide range of capabilities to those dedicated to monitoring natural aquatic environments such as oceans, estuaries, rivers, lakes, and ground water.

Inside the EXO platform you’ll find innovations resulting in greater ruggedness, increased accuracy and improved ease-of-use in the collection and transmission of water quality data—cost effective now and adaptable for the future.

Compact and Accurate
The EXO platform offers a completely new approach—highly accurate, quick-response sensors in a small, easy-to-deploy and easy-to-maintain package. Gone are large and complicated sensor arrangements requiring complex integration.

Smart Probes
All EXO sensors have on-board memory and processing, allowing users to easily calibrate and configure sensors at one location and distribute to various field sites.

Measurable Sensor Performance
A new metrology system specifically for EXO offers improved accuracy of conductivity and temperature sensors to better address oceanographic challenges.

Monitor without Interruption
EXO’s patented reinforced structure, welded Titanium tubes, improved power management, and stable sensor performance allow you to gather data for long periods of time and with fewer interruptions, even in the toughest conditions.

Smart Ports
Wet-mateable connectors allow for swaps in wet conditions, while the smart ports shut down any excessive current draws to prevent damage.

Self-Routing Sensors
Automatic routing enables a string of sondes to pass messages to individual probes. Any time the configuration changes, the system automatically recognizes it. A “kick” allows any device to send alerts back up the chain.

EXO Handheld
The EXO handheld provides an extremely durable, portable, weather-proof interface to the EXO sondes. The handheld uses a mobile version of the KOR interface software.

Additional standard features:
• GPS
• Temperature-compensated barometer
• Backlit alphanumeric keypad
• Microphone/speaker
• Wet-mate wireless connector
• Bluetooth communication
• Colour LED screen
• 2 GB of storage
• Rechargeable battery capable

KOR Interface Software
The KOR Software offers users the capability to easily manage, visualise, and organise large amounts of field data. KOR also provides an interface to the EXO products for fast calibration, configuration, QA/QC or data collection.

• New calibration processes designed specifically for long-term monitoring
• Graphical user interface for quick data analysis
• Multiple languages

Multiple Data Output Options
Sonde output is readable by YSI handheld instruments, interface software, and data telemetry modules. In addition to the cable (standard), these communication interfaces are also available:

-DCP Signal Output Adapter
Wires into the end of the YSI field cable via flying leads and converts signal to RS-232 or SDI-12 for datalogger applications.

-USB Adapter
Allows connections between an EXO sonde and a PC. Bluetooth Wireless Technology Enables communication between a sonde and a user in the lab and predeployment in the field.
