Metrec•X is a real-time, multi-parameter instrument that allows you to change the instrument’s sensor load, in-the-field and on-demand. Metrec•X can accommodate as many as five Xchange™ sensor-heads on the end-cap, allowing you to configure the focus of your research on an application by application basis. With Metrec•X, conductivity can be swapped for sound velocity; shallow pressure sensors can be swapped for deep; and temperature range can be extended or tightened, as needed. One instrument meets multiple deployment requirements.

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.

Metrec•X is ideal for long term, in-situ deployments with UV•Xchange for biofouling control. By eliminating biofouling-induced drift, UV•Xchange allows sensors to perform to their full potential on in-situ instruments. Install UV•Xchange on a Metrec•X for a high performance in-situ CTD. A copper nickel alloy cage option (shown) is available for incidental biofouling protection.

Storm case for shipping and storing Metrec•X is included.


X•Series instruments are compatible with these Xchange™ sensor-heads:
