X2 Supported Sensors

 

X2 Environmental Data Logger

3 Sensor Ports each have communication of SDI-12, RS-485 & RS-232

 

X2-SDL

3 Sensor Ports each have communication of SDI-12, RS-485 & RS-232

 

X2-CB

5 Sensor Ports each have communication of SDI-12, RS-485 & RS-232

 

 

 

Tier 1 Sensors

These sensors will be automatically detected by the X2. If multiple sensors are connected to the same logger, they must be addressed uniquely.

Tier 2 Sensors

These sensors require limited setup prior to connection. The scope of this varies by sensor type but typically includes setting up a template, configuring the device or selecting the parameter output. Often these tasks are done with a separate PC program provided by the sensor manufacturer.

Tier 3 Sensors

These sensors are not commonly supported by the X2, but can be added through the creation of a user-defined script. The script is written in Lua and utilizes NexSens created functions to simplify programming. As long as the sensor communicates using SDI-12, RS-485, or RS-232 and can be powered from a 12V supply, it should be compatible with the X2.

Please contact NexSens for further details.
