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 EXO2’s Central Wiper.
Discover the benefits of Wiped (C/T):
Save money by reducing the number of site visits each year. Pays for itself in under a year depending on application.
Lower the cleaning & maintenance requirements for conductivity sensors, and spend less time with anti-fouling screens and removing the build-up of hard growth.
Improve the reliability of your conductivity sensor, now with non-metallic electrodes. Leverage the flexible, plug-and-play sensor architecture of an existing EXO2 sonde with this user upgradeable solution.
Improve the representativeness of your conductivity data by avoiding stagnant readings and reducing the impact of micro-environments.
Reduce the need for post-processing data and spend less time manually adjusting for fouling-related sensor drift.
Prevent common types of fouling from impacting your valuable data, including; particulates, algae, barnacles, and trapped gasses.
