Key Benefits

  • High-accuracy sensors with on-board memory
  • Wireless communications
  • Seamless integration into marine, estuarine, freshwater and ground water monitoring systems

Smart Sondes and Sensors
Extremely versatile instrument, allowing the user to automatically configure a sonde with different sensor for different applications in minutes

Tested in a variety of rigorous field conditions as well as lab conditions to ensure accuracy and response times

Monitor without Interruption
No matter which EXO sensors users select, other features of the sensors' design make them rugged and durable:

  • Wet-mateable connectors resist corrosion
  • Isolated components prevent short circuits
  • Welded housings and double o-rings prevent leaks
  • High-impact plastic and titanium resists breaking
  • Built-in antifouling systems protect data integrity
  • Low power consumption extends underwater deployments

But that's just the beginning of the great benefits EXO3 has to offer:

  • The best priced, highest-quality sonde for baseline water quality monitoring.
  • Flexibility to switch from continuous monitoring to spot sampling with a lighter, shorter form factor.
  • Integral SDI-12 communications makes it ideal for existing data collection platforms and installations.
    (Including replacement of 6-Series sondes.)
  • Plug-and-play design with all existing EXO platform smart sensors, including Total Algae, fDOM, and Wiped Conductivity & Temperature.
  • The best antifouling wiper in the industry, protecting your sensors for up to 90 days in the harshest conditions
