  ProductsOptical Property Measurement HydroScat-6P Backscattering Sensor - Fluorometer 

HydroScat-6P Backscattering Sensor - Fluorometer

HydroScat-6

HydroScat-6P

Successor to the original HS-6,

includes integrated deployment cage

NOTE: The HydroScat-6P is now available from Hobi Instrument Services

6-Channel Backscattering sensor and fluorometer

Flag ship of the HydroScat Family, the first commercial multi-spectral backcattering sensor and the first to measure both backscattering and fluorescence, the HydroScat-6 has a long record of superior performance and reliability.  Now upgraded to the HydroScat-6P (Plus).

Measurements
  • Backscattering (ß[140°] and bb) at six wavelengths
    • Standard bb wavelengths: 420, 442, 470, 510, 590, and 700 nm
    • Other wavelengths available
  • Fluorescence at two wavelengths
    • Standard: 700 nm excited by 442 nm (chlorophyll), 510 nm excited by 420 nm
  • Depth (330 m standard, 500 m optional)

 

Features
  • Superior Optics and Calibration
  • Internal data logging
