C3

Internal memory storage capacity combined with an external submersible lithium ion battery allows the C3™ to run during extended or short-term deployments. Each C3™ comes with a factory-installed temperature sensor. Optional factory-installed depth sensors and mechanical wipers are also available. The durable delrin housing is highly resistant to harsh environments. Antifouling copper tape pieces are included for placement on the C3™ optical head to reduce bio-fouling on and around the sensors. C-Soft Windows™ based software allows for intuitive calibration, datalogging set-up and file management capabilities as well as digital or analog data integration.
