AML Minos•X

The New Standard in Vertical Profiling

Minos•X is a small vertical profiler that allows you to change the instrument’s sensor load, in-the-field and on-demand. This capability allows one single profiler to meet 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.
Half the size of a Plus•X instrument, Minos•X includes a shackle and sensor cage, as well as an LED status indicator to simplify deployment preparation. High speed 25Hz sampling ensures excellent data resolution. Minos•X can be ordered with 2 additional analog channels or 1 additional digital channel, for use with remote sensors, such as dissolved oxygen.

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: Maximum deployment depth varies depending upon housing material and sensor payload
