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.


Recommended Applications: 

  • Buoy / In-Situ Deployments
  • Coastal Monitoring
  • ROV Integration
