AML Oceanographic Minos X

AML Oceanographic Minos X is a small vertical profiler that allows you to swap the instrument’s sensors in-the-field and on-demand and your SVPT can become a CTD if needed. Like all other X Series instruments, the Minos X uses Xchange TM field-swappable sensors, now available for conductivity, sound velocity, temperature, pressure, dissolved oxygen and turbidity. This means that sensor heads can be shared with other instruments.

Minos X is robust, easy to carry and designed for waters up to 1000 meters deep. 3 sensor slots allow to install other X Change ™ sensors beside the sound velocity sensor. It can be used as CTD by utilizing conductivity, temperature and depth sensors, also can be used as both SVP and CTD by adding sound velocity sensor. Depending on the sector and requirements you can configure your sensor configurations.

Field-swappable sensors also streamline recalibration: instead of sending the entire instrument back to a recalibration centre, calibrated sensor-heads can be sent to the instrument. Changing sensors is easy: simply unscrew one sensor-head and replace it with another. The Minos X is designed for vertical profiling in tight spaces like launches or boats. The instrument includes a shackle and sensor cage, as well as an LED status indicator to simplify deployment preparation.

Available with Data Xchange to enable Wi-Fi communication, automatic data transfer, and integrated GPS positioning.
