Depending on the application, the HydroCAT can collect high-quality data for several months up to a year.
Excellent bio-fouling protection is provided by US EPA-approved anti-foulant devices, integral pump, and unique internal flow path, which minimizes flow between samples and provides stable measurements throughout a deployment.
Conductivity and temperature sensors are based on field-proven Sea-Bird CTD products. The aged and pressure-protected thermistor has a long history of exceptional stability and accuracy. The oxygen sensor was designed to meet the demand for a low maintenance and high accuracy sensor for use in applications such as hypoxia monitoring. All HydroCAT sensors are built with careful choices of materials and geometry combined with superior electronics and calibration methodology to optimize field performance.
