Falmouth Scientific Instruments NXIC CTD Series
|Within Vocab||SeaVoX Device Catalogue|
|Preferred Label||Falmouth Scientific Instruments NXIC CTD Series|
|Definition||A collection of conductivity, temperature and depth (CTD) sensors which are generally linked to a common data logger that samples at up to 15Hz. The CTD sensors utilise the patented Non-eXternal Inductive Cell (NXIC) conductivity sensor, originally developed by FSI for the US Navy DT-705 Sound Velocity/Salinity sensor. Models in the collection include the NXIC CT Bio Direct Read-500M, NXIC CTD Bio Direct Read-500M, NXIC CTD Bio Auto-500M, NXIC CTD Direct Read-500M, NXIC CTD Direct Read-700M, NXIC CTD Auto-500M, NXIC CTD Auto-700M, NXIC CTD-ADC with external sensors, and the NXIC ETSG Thermosalinograph. Parameters are measured to an accuracy ranging from 0.002-0.010 mS/cm for conductivity, 0.005 degC for temperature and 0.08% for full scale pressure. Now marketed by Teledyne RD Instruments.|
