|SBE 45 Remote Sea Surface Temperature Sensor and NMEA (GPS) Data Interface Options
||SBE 38 Digital Oceanographic Remote Seawater Intake Thermometer (titanium housing, XSG connector)
||Optional 90402.1 Interface Box supports input from remote SBE 38 thermometer through 4-pin SBE 38 connector, providing sea surface temperature. Ideal location for SBE 38 is on pipe near seawater intake, as close to ship's bow as possible, to minimize water temperature changes due to ship's thermal mass. User can add SBE 38 to system at any time. 38.110x includes only SBE 38; order interface box, mount kit (50244), & interface cable (80438, 80456, or 80458) separately.

||Connects NMEA on 90402 Interface Box to computer simulating NMEA input for testing NMEA interface. Included with 90402 Interface Box; this is spare. NMEA simulation program, NMEATest, is part of Seasoft software, & is installed when you install SBE Data Processing.
||AF24173 Anti-Foulant Device pair (spare, bagged, labeled for shipping)
||Anti-foulant device fits into anti-foulant device cup at end of conductivity cell. 1 anti-foulant device included with standard shipment; these are spares.
Useful life varies, depending on several factors. We recommend that customers consider more frequent replacement when high biological activity & strong current flow (greater dilution of anti-foulant concentration) are present. Moored instruments in high growth & strong dilution environments have been known to obtain a few months of quality data, while drifters that operate in non-photic, less turbid deep ocean environments may achieve years of quality data. Experience may be strongest determining factor in specific deployment environments.
