Cyclops Fluorometers for AUVs, Gliders & Floats

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Turner Designs’ new Cyclops Integrator is designed to allow easy system integration of its Cyclops Submersible Fluorometers and Turbidimeter into AUVs, gliders, floats and other platforms.  One, two, or three optical sensors with configurations ranging from deep UV to IR along with the Cyclops Integrator electronics can be fastened to an optical head defined by the customer and ready for integration.  Alternately, customers can purchase the Cyclops Integrator with sensors in one of the pre-defined Turner Designs optical head configurations. Data integration is reported to be simple with ASCII data automatically delivered at 1 second intervals only 3 seconds after power is applied.  Standard optical kits are available for detecting: in vivo Chlorophyll, Crude Oil, Refined Fuels, CDOM/FDOM (dissolved organic material), Blue/Green Algae, Fluorescein Dye, Rhodamine Dye, PTSA Dye, Optical Brighteners, Tryptophan, and Turbidity.  Cyclops Integrator packages can also be configured with custom optics for specialized applications per customer request. Sensors are pressure-rated to meet 600m, 1000m, or 6000m depths.  Typical current draw is minimal, 100mA operational for three installed sensors powered with a 12V supply. An optional wiper motor can be added to minimize biofouling of sensors when deploying long-term.
