AML bathyMetrec•X

Bathymetric System Multi-parameter Instrument

bathyMetrec•X is the only instrument to combine the key features of a bathymetric system: a low drift, high accuracy 0.01%, internal Paroscientific Digiquartz® pressure sensor, with the ability to measure additional parameters.

bathyMetrec•X can be field-configured to suit the application at hand. In addition to its internal pressure sensor, up to four field-swappable sensor-heads can be connected. Available sensor-heads include conductivity, sound velocity, temperature, and turbidity. Piezoresistive pressure sensor-heads can also be connected. Sensor-heads can be swapped, in-the-field and on-demand.
bathyMetrec•X offers high-speed 25Hz sampling, ensuring excellent data resolution. External altimeters are also available for integration. Sound velocity, as directly measured by bathyMetrec•X, is used to compensate the altimeter. Salinity and density are calculated using appropriate equations. Software based look-up tables are provided to ensure density compensation for true depth and position.

Available Sensor-Heads

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

Sound Velocity: SV•Xchange™
Conductivity: C•Xchange™
Temperature: T•Xchange™
Pressure: P•Xchange™
Turbidity: Tu•Xchange™
Sensor-heads are ordered separately.

Maximum Deployment Depth: 6000 meters
