Cyclops-7 Submersible Fluorometer

Cyclops 7 offers easy integration with a CTD or other multi-parameter system

The Turner Designs CYCLOPS-7 Submersible Fluorometer/Turbidimeter is an accurate single channel detector that can be used for many different applications. This instrument can be designed to detect pigment fluorescence, dye fluorescence for dye tracing applications, fluorescence of dissolved organic matter, or be used as a turbidimeter. It is intended to be integrated into a multi-parameter system to obtain its power and to deliver an output voltage to the system data logger, which is proportional to the concentration of the fluorophore, particle or compound of interest.

The CYCLOPS-7 line of submersible sensors is designed for integration into multi-parameter platforms requiring a high performance, compact sensor at a significantly lower price than traditional submersible sensors. The CYCLOPS-7 combination of price, performance and size make the sensor very attractive for oceanographic, freshwater and dye tracing applications.
