YSI EXO2 Multiparameter Sonde

YSI EXO multiparamter water quality instrument

The EXO advanced water quality monitoring platform includes the versatile multiparameter EXO2 sonde for oceanographic, estuarine, or surface water applications. Collect data to 250m with the advanced EXO2 sonde – contains six replaceable 'smart' sensors and a central wiper to clean biofouling.

  • Features
  • Specifications

The EXO2 is the latest sonde platform offering from YSI.  The EXO2 multiparameter sonde collects data with six user-replaceable sensors, a central wiper to keep sensors clean of biofouling, and an integral pressure transducer for depth.

Smart Ports: Each sensor port on the sonde accepts any EXO water quality sensor and automatically recognises it. Sensors are user-replaceable and made from rugged titanium housing.
