Conductivity sensors from AADI are compact, fully integrated sensors for measuring the electrical conductivity of seawater. Conductivity is a key parameter for in-situ measurements of several fundamental physical properties of seawater. For seawater, the ability to conduct electrical current is mostly dependent on temperature and the amount of inorganic dissolved solids. Salinity is defined as the concentration of dissolved solids. This means that, together with temperature and depth information, a good estimate of the salinity may be determined. By using the inductive principle, stable measurement can be obtained without utilizing electrodes that are easily fouled and may wear out in the field.
Available conductivity sensors:
- Conductivity Sensor 4319 is designed to be mounted on the SEAGUARD® Platform, SmartGuard Platform or as standalone RS-232 sensor for other applications.
- Conductivity Sensors 4019 is designed to be mounted on the Recording Doppler Current Profiler RDCP 600.
- Conductivity Sensors 3919, 4119 and 4120 are designed to be mounted on Recording Current Meters RCM 9, RCM 9 MkII, RCM 9 IW, RCM 9 LW and RCM 11, Recording Doppler Current Profiler RDCP 600 or with analog adapter for other applications.
