EXO Total Algae Phycoerythrin Digital Smart Sensor - Saltwater

For Phycocyanin (Freshwater) version, please see our EXO TAL-PC Smart Sensor.

Note: This product is intended for sampling and profiling applications.
This sensor must be installed into an EXO Sonde to function. Does not function on its own.

  • Overview

    The EXO Total Algae PE Sensor is a digital smart sensor (chlorophyll & phycoerythrin) featuring welded titanium construction and wet-mateable connectors optimized for saltwater use. Complete calibration in less than 15 minutes using EXO's suite of smart sensors and intuitive KOR interface software.

    • Dual-channel sensor
    • Measures and outputs both chlorophyll & blue-green algae
    • Options for µg/L and RFU outputs

    Compact and Accurate
    The EXO platform offers a completely new approach - highly accurate, quick-response sensors in a small, easy-to-deploy and easy-to-maintain package. Gone are large and complicated sensor arrangements requiring complex integration.

    Smart Probes
    All EXO sensors have onboard memory and processing, allowing users to easily calibrate and configure sensors at one location and distribute to various field sites. Smart sensors are auto-recognized from any port of an EXO sonde making sensor payloads interchangeable and completely customizable.

    Smart Ports
    Wet-mateable connectors allow for swaps in wet conditions, while the smart ports shut down any excessive current draws to prevent damage.

    Designed for Use with EXO Multiparameter Sondes
    • EXO1 sonde has 4 ports and a smaller diameter
    EXO2 sonde has 7 ports for the ultimate monitoring platform
    • EXO3 sonde has 5 ports for a lower cost option using the central wiper
    • EXO2s sonde offers the same features as the EXO2, but without the battery compartment
