The number designation refers to the number of sensors that may be installed on the instrument’s endcap.
Typical Configurations include:
• Sound Velocity (SV)
• Turbidity (Tu)
• Pressure / Water Level (P)
• Conductivity Temperature (CT)
The LGR designation (ie. AML-6 LGR) are self-powered via a rechargeable internal battery and have a mechanical on/off
switch adjacent to their shackle. These instruments are most commonly used for multiparameter profiling applications and
internally log sensor measurements and transfer data postdeployment.
The RT designation (ie. AML-3 RT) stream data while in-situ. Power and communication to this instrument is facilitated via a waterproof
connector. These instruments rely on external power for operation and the application of this power is automatic when voltage is
applied. These instruments are commonly used in measurement of sound velocity on sonar systems, moored applications, buoys,
underwater observatories, and ROVs.
