Smart•X is a real-time instrument that allows you to change the instrument’s sensor load, in-the-field and on-demand. With Smart•X, your SVP can become a CTD; Shallow pressure sensors can be swapped for deep; and temperature range can be extended or tightened, as needed. One single real-time 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. Smart•X offers high-speed 25Hz sampling, ensuring excellent data resolution.
Smart•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 Smart•X for a high performance in-situ CTD.
Also ideal for AUV or ROV work, and for sea surface sound velocity measurement for multi-beam systems when equipped with a sound velocity sensor. The instrument is available in 1 or 3 sensor configurations; form factor and functionality vary slightly between the two.
X•Series instruments are compatible with these Xchange™ sensor-heads:
Sensor-heads are ordered separately.
