With Xchange sensors, instrument recalibration is as simple as unscrewing the sensor installed on the instrument end-cap and replacing it with a new sensor. The picture demonstrates the ease with which Xchange sensors can be swapped. No tools are required. New sensors install in minutes, are robust, compact, and easy to store.
An Xchange sensor can be placed on any other instrument that has been previously equipped with an Xchange sensor of that same type.
For example, an SV•Xchange™ sensor can be moved from one instrument to another instrument that was previously equipped with a different SV•Xchange™ sensor. An SV•Xchange™ sensor cannot be installed in the end-cap location of a P•Xchange™, C•Xchange™, or T•Xchange™sensor. Xchanges cannot be installed on previous generation AML Oceanographic instruments without upgrades to the mechanicals and electronics of the instrument in question.
