Description

Take advantage of Xchange™ sensors’ field swappability with Metrec•X: Configure the focus of your research on an application by application basis. One instrument meets multiple deployment requirements.

Need a high performance in-situ CTD? Deploy Metrec•X with UV•Xchange™, the biofouling control technology proven to expand monitoring timelines, reduce maintenance costs, and ensure superior sensor performance. By eliminating biofouling-induced drift, UV•Xchange allows sensors to perform to their full potential on in-situ instruments. A copper nickel alloy cage option (shown) is available for incidental biofouling protection.

Real-time Metrec•X is also ideal for use on ROVs. Large enough to accommodate up to five sensors on the endcap, yet small enough to integrate easily into most vehicles.
