PART # DESCRIPTION NOTES
39plus

TEMPERATURE (pressure optional) RECORDER - 64 MB memory, USB interface, lithium battery (non-hazardous), USB upload cable for internal I/O (PN 172557), Seasoft software, and complete documentation (internal USB I/O cable may be deleted for credit).

 
SBE 39plus Housing (depth) Selections MUST SELECT ONE
39P.1xxx0 600 m plastic housing  
39P.2xxx0 10,500 m titanium housing  
SBE 39plus Pressure Sensor Range (depth) Selections — MUST SELECT ONE
39P.x0xx0 No pressure sensor Pressure sensor is installed in end cap, & is not field replaceable / swappable. While highest pressure rating gives you most flexibility in using 39plus, it is at expense of accuracy & resolution. It is advantageous to use lowest range pressure sensor compatible with your intended maximum operating depth, because accuracy & resolution are proportional to pressure sensor's full scale range. For example, comparing 2000 & 7000 m sensors:
  • 2000 m sensor:
    initial accuracy = 2 m (= 0.1% * 2000 m),
    resolution = 0.04 m (= 0.002% * 2000 m)
  • 7000 m sensor:
    initial accuracy = 7 m (= 0.1% * 7000 m),
    resolution = 0.14 m (= 0.002% * 7000 m)
39P.x1xx0 20 m strain gauge pressure sensor
39P.x2xx0 100 m strain gauge pressure sensor
39P.x3xx0 350 m strain gauge pressure sensor
39P.x4xx0 600 m strain gauge pressure sensor
39P.x5xx0 1000 m strain gauge pressure sensor
39P.x6xx0 2000 m strain gauge pressure sensor
39P.x7xx0 3500 m strain gauge pressure sensor
39P.x8xx0 7000 m strain gauge pressure sensor
SBE 39plus Connector Selections MUST SELECT ONE
39P.xx0x0 No external connector (communication only via internal USB connector)

All options include cable 172557 (USB cable for communications with internal USB connector).

  • 39P.xx0x0 — For 39plus without external connector, instrument setup & data upload require opening housing by unscrewing end cap; communication is via internal USB connector.
  • 39P.xx1x0 & 39P.xx2x0 — 39plus with external connector allows instrument setup & data upload without opening housing. Communication via internal USB connector provides fast upload of large data sets.

Wet-pluggable connectors may be mated in wet conditions. Their pins do not need to be dried before mating. By design, water on connector pins is forced out as connector is mated. However, they must not be mated or un-mated while submerged. Wet-pluggable connectors have a non-conducting guide pin to assist pin alignment & require less force to mate, making them easier to mate reliably under dark or cold conditions, compared to XSG/AG connectors. Like XSG/AG connectors, wet-pluggables need proper lubrication & require care during use to avoid trapping water in sockets.

SBE 39plus Thermistor Configuration Selections— MUST SELECT ONE
39P.xxx00 External thermistor, in pressure protected sheath (~0.5 second response time) Internal thermistor provides more rugged sensor, but slower response. External thermistor provides faster response for when fast sampling required.
39P.xxx10 Internal thermistor, imbedded in titanium end cap (~25 second response time)
SBE 39plus Mooring Clamp Options (2 clamps & titanium housing should be used if mooring subjected to high dynamic motion. Specify clamp to match O.D. of mooring wire jacket)
50377. I One plastic mounting clamp for 1/4 in. or 6 mm diameter mooring wire

See document 67162 & drawing 41396. '. I' designation indicates that clamp is to be installed on instrument at factory.

SBE 39plus shown with 10,500 m titanium housing, internal I/O connector, & external thermistor, as well as 1 mounting clamp.

Clamp Size Note: Mooring wire is typically specified by wire size, not by outer diameter (O.D.) of the mooring wire jacket. Verify the wire jacket O.D. before selecting the clamp size. The clamp size must be less than or equal to the wire jacket O.D. but larger than the wire diameter. For example, Mooring System Inc.’s specifications for 3x19 wire rope (in 2016) are as follows:

Wire Diameter Jacket Diameter Recommended Sea-Bird Clamp
3/16 inch (5.0 mm) 0.255 inch (6.5 mm) 1/4 inch
1/4 inch (6.5 mm) 0.330 inch (8.4 mm) 5/16 inch
5/16 inch (8.0 mm) 0.392 inch (9.9 mm) 3/8 inch
3/8 inch (9.5 mm) 0.453 inch (11.5 mm) 10 mm (0.394 inch)
7/16 inch (11.1 mm) 0.5 inch (12.7 mm) 1/2 inch

For mounting on a rope, verify the rope outer diameter, and select a clamp smaller than the rope O.D. to account for the rope compressibility (for example, for 5/16 inch rope, select a ¼ inch clamp; a 5/16 inch clamp will be too large).

50378. I One plastic mounting clamp for 5/16 in. or 8 mm diameter mooring wire
50379. I One plastic mounting clamp for 3/8 in. or 10 mm diameter mooring wire
50380. I One plastic mounting clamp for 1/2 in. or 12 mm diameter mooring wire
50381. I One plastic mounting clamp for 5/8 in. or 16 mm diameter mooring wire
50423. I One plastic mounting clamp for 3/4 in. or 19 mm diameter mooring wire
50459. I One plastic mounting clamp for 18 mm diameter mooring wire
50534. I One plastic mounting clamp for 20 mm diameter mooring wire
SBE 39plus Net Fender Options — Requires one Mooring Clamp
801554.001 I Net Fender for 1/4 in. diameter mooring wire

' I' designation indicates that net fender is to be installed on instrument at factory.

Conical ends of net fender are designed to shed fishing lines or nets.

Net fender retains 1/2 of mooring clamp. All hardware is captured within, guaranteeing no loss of nuts or bolts during deployment. Attach 39plus to mooring cable in 2 steps:

  1. Place net fender & attached clamp against mooring line. Push 39plus into clamp guides.
  2. Holding 39plus & net fender with 1 hand, tighten clamp bolts with a driver in free hand.
