EXO Wiped Conductivity & Temperature Digital Smart Sensor

Note: This product is intended for long-term monitoring applications in fouling environments.
This sensor must be installed into an EXO Sonde with central wiper to function. Does not function on its own.

For sampling and profiling applications, please see our standard (C/T) sensor.

  • Overview

    In long-term water quality monitoring, biofouling is public enemy number one.

    Biofilms, barnacles, and algal growth are common culprits of poor data quality, clogging up conductivity cells and coating sensor optics. While EXO2’s Central Wiper can mechanically remove biofouling from other sensors to maintain data integrity over long deployment periods, the anatomy of a standard conductivity & temperature sensor makes this anti-fouling technique ineffective...until now.  

    Introducing the EXO Wiped Conductivity & Temperature sensor from YSI, designed with and engineered for compatibility with EXO’s Central Wiper

    Discover the benefits of Wiped (C/T):

    YSI Integrated Systems

    Save money by reducing the number of site visits each year. Pays for itself in under a year depending on application. 

    EXO University

    Lower the cleaning & maintenance requirements for conductivity sensors, and spend less time with anti-fouling screens and removing the build-up of hard growth.

    Maintenance Special

    Improve the reliability of your conductivity sensor, now with non-metallic electrodes. Leverage the flexible, plug-and-play sensor architecture of an existing EXO2 or EXO3 sonde with this user upgradeable solution. 

    YSI Integrated Systems

    Improve the representativeness of your conductivity data by avoiding stagnant readings and reducing the impact of micro-environments.

    EXO University

    Reduce the need for post-processing data and spend less time manually adjusting for fouling-related sensor drift.

    Maintenance Special

    Prevent common types of fouling from impacting your valuable data, including; particulates, algae, barnacles, and trapped gasses.

    The EXO Conductivity & Temperature Sensor is a digital smart sensor featuring welded titanium construction and wet-mateable connectors. A new metrology system specifically for EXO offers improved range of conductivity and increased accuracy of temperature sensors to better address oceanographic challenges. This combination sensor provides measurements for water temperature and conductivity as well as calculated parameters like specific conductivity, salinity, resistivity, and total dissolved solids (TDS).

    • 0 to 100 mS/cm measurement range
    • ±0.01°C (-5 to 35°C) 

    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

    • 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
    • EXO3s sonde offers the same features as the EXO3, but without the battery compartment
