OSIL added a 200m rated Hydrolab DS5X to its rental pool and the units are now available for hire. The DS5X is a multiparameter water quality sonde, capable of measuring up to 15 water quality parameters simultaneously. The memory capacity of up to 120,000 measurements allows users to deploy the sonde in situ for long periods of time. With its innovative central brush motors, the DS5X is also ideal for extended deployments where biofouling may otherwise become an issue.
As with the other Series 5 multiparameter sondes, the DS5X allows optimized combinations of sensors and accessories to suit water quality monitoring applications in all environmental water sources such as rivers, streams, lakes, reservoirs, oceans, bays, estuaries and groundwater aquifers. The DS5X can be used in a broad range of applications including dredge monitoring, long term in-situ environment monitoring and buoy based applications.
Sensors are available to measure temperature, depth, conductivity, salinity, specific conductance, TDS, pH/ORP, dissolved oxygen, turbidity and chlorophyll a.
