Product Summary

AML's X•Series instruments can be configured in the field to suit the job at hand and cover all of your CTD, sound velocity, and environmental monitoring needs.

The innovative Xchange™ Sensor-Heads have garnered significant praise for the flexibility and convenience that they bring to users...all without compromising sensor accuracy. 

Each of the AML X•Series instruments shown below can be easily configured with a payload of Xchange sensors that is most appropriate for a given application.  


It is widely understood that a major limiting factor for deployment of sensors for ocean monitoring purposes is biofouling. UV•Xchange is a subsea module that prevents biofouling during long-term, in-situ deployments.

These modules can be added to X•Series instruments and configured to provide biofouling control for just a single sensor, or for multiple sensors when installed on the same instrument.

The UV•Xchange module shown below provides biofouling protection to four individual sensors. 

A cabled version of UV•Xchange is also available for biofouling protection of third-party sensors and other instruments.
