Base•X is a rugged, shallow water logging instrument. Designed for profiling in coastal waters, the instrument includes a shackle, a sensor cage, and an LED status indicator to simplify deployment preparation. Highspeed 25Hz sampling ensures excellent data resolution. Base•X’s compact size and compatibility with AML’s Xchange™ sensor-head architecture make it the ideal companion for the shallow water hydrographic surveyor.
Like all other X•Series instruments, Base•X uses Xchange™ field-swappable sensors. Base•X is available for use with conductivity, sound velocity, temperature, pressure, and turbidity Xchange™ sensors. This means that sensor heads can be shared with other instruments, regardless of instrument size or type. Total flexibility - of instrument model, of sensor type, and of sensor range - ensures that the right instrument is always available. Field-swappable sensors also streamline recalibration: instead of sending the entire instrument back to a recalibration centre, calibrated sensor-heads can be sent to the instrument. Changing sensors is easy: simply unscrew one sensor-head and replace it with another.

Storm case for shipping and storing Base•X included.
