AML Sensors

C•Xchange™  is the oceanographic industry’s only field-swappable conductivity sensor.  Each sensor-head contains embedded electronics where calibration coefficients are stored.  Sensor-heads can be moved from instrument to instrument without impacting field accuracy. In-line flow and right angle (pictured) sensors are available. The phrase ‘right-angle’ in the name of a sensor refers to the direction of the flow of the water. Water enters the sensor at right-angles to the instrument.

Tu•Xchange™ is the oceanographic industry’s only field-swappable turbidity sensor. Each sensor-head contains embedded electronics where calibration coefficients are stored. Sensor-heads can be moved from instrument to instrument without impacting field accuracy.

Tu•Xchange™ accuracy is quoted as a percentage of reading. For example, a 1000 NTU range sensor measuring 900 NTU is accurate to +/-18 NTU, while measuring 500 NTU it is accurate to +/- 10 NTU, based on its +/- 2% specification. As the measurement nears 0 NTU the accuracy specification also includes a floor. For example, the same 1000 NTU sensor measuring at or below 1 NTU would have an error of +/- 0.2 NTU.

Together with sensor-heads for conductivity, sound velocity, temperature and pressure, AML Xchange sensor-heads can be deployed on any one of five different X•Series instrument models. With Xchange, users are able to create the instrument they need for today’s application, in-the-field and on-demand.
