YSI EXO3 Multi-Parameter Water Quality Sonde
EXO3 is a purpose-built sonde for monitoring major water quality parameters, including: pH, conductivity, temperature, turbidity and dissolved oxygen.
- Titanium sensors with wet-mateable, universal sensor ports
- Biofouling protection with central wiper brush and copper-alloy accessories
- Integral SDI-12 communications make it ideal for data collection platforms
The YSI EXO represents the next generation of water quality instruments from YSI. The advanced sonde platform offers a wide range of capabilities to those dedicated to monitoring natural aquatic environments such as oceans, estuaries, rivers, lakes, and groundwater. With a highly efficient power management platform, robust construction, and chemistry-free anti-fouling system, EXO allows accurate data collection for up to 90 days between service intervals.
The EXO3 sonde includes four sensor ports and a central anti-fouling wiper option. Sensor parameters include temperature, conductivity, depth, dissolved oxygen, pH, ORP, total algae (phycocyanin and chlorophyll), turbidity, and fluorescent dissolved organic matter (fDOM). The sonde can also output 4 calculated parameters including salinity, specific conductance, total dissolved solids (TDS) and total suspended solids (TSS).
All EXO sensors are digital sensors with on-board signal processing and memory. Built-in sensor diagnostic and calibration data allows users to calibrate multiple sensors in one sonde and distribute to various other sondes in the field. Wet-mateable connectors allow for swaps in wet conditions, while active port monitoring automatically detects each sensor and verifies operation.
