C6

The C6™ Multi-Sensor Platform integrates up to six Cyclops-7™ fluorescence and turbidity sensors for extended or short-term deployments. The C6™ provides individual automatic gain control, calibration, digital data reporting and datalogging for each Cyclops-7™ sensor. Each C6 comes with factory-installed temperature and pressure sensors. C-Soft Windows™ based user interface allows for intuitive calibration, datalogging set up, and file downloading. Existing Cyclops-7™ users can easily install their sensors onto the C6™ Multi-Sensor Platform.
