Reduce Calibration Standard Use with EXO Concurrent Sensor Calibration

In this video you will discover one of the many smart features of the EXO advanced water quality monitoring platform, designed to save you money and time.

When you calibrate water quality sensors, you can now put together several of the same-parameter sensors on the same sonde at the same time, thus saving the amount of calibration solution you need to use.

Previous methods of calibration required a sensor to be installed in the exact sonde that it was to be deployed with. When calibrating, the sensor’s calibration data were stored in the sonde.

For example, if you had six turbidity sensors, then each turbidity sensor had to be calibrated separately in its own sonde. That also meant 6 calibration cups full of turbidity calibration standard.

With the EXO calibration procedure, all like sensors can be installed on a single sonde and calibrated at the same time. That means only one cup of calibration standard is used for six sensors, saving you money.

How does this quicker method work? The sensor’s calibration data are stored inside the sensor itself, not in the sonde. When the calibration is complete, the sensors can be distributed to different sondes.

For example, you can calibrate six turbidity sensors in the lab, then transport those sensors to different sondes deployed in the field and swap them.

So, six cups of cal solution or just one? Six separate sondes for six sensors, or just one sonde with six sensors quickly plugged into it?

For those of you who have many sensors and sondes in your equipment fleet, this calibration procedure will save you both time and money.

This is just one example of the smart, cost-saving features of the EXO advanced water quality monitoring platform .
