  • Seven universal sensor ports that allow custom configuration
  • Measures up to 16 parameters simultaneously (Some sensors provide multiple parameters) Capable of measurements using any of Hydrolab’s 17 sensors
  • Optimized for long-term, unattended deployments
  • Central cleaning system wipes away fouling from DO, pH, ISE's, Chlorophyll, Blue-Green Algae, Rhodamine, and Turbidity sensors
  • Ideal for 'X-tended' deployments in environments where fouling and sediment are abundant
  • Improves long-term value by reducing the frequency of sensor maintenance
  • A single central motor cleans the entire suite of sensors, thereby minimizing power consumption
  • Brush design features robust fibers that won't separate over time
