Multiparameter probe CTD60Mc – ultra deep sea | Multiparametersonde

The CTD60Mc – ultra deep sea probe is a small and handy microprocessor controlled multiparameter memory probe for oceanographic measurement with up to 3 sensors and a maximum depth down to 11000 m. It measures electric conductivity, water temperature and ambient pressure.
Data are stored in a standard flash memory with a capacity of 128 Mbytes. Up to 5,5 million CTD data sets can be recorded on this memory

Online operation
This mode is possible up to 350m via RS-232 Interface, but not recommended for this Probetyp. Only for testing.

Memory operation
The memory operation is divided into the following operation modes:

  • Continuous mode: each data set is stored.
  • Time mode: data sets are only stored at programmable intervals with several selectable schemes.
  • Pressure mode: data sets are stored at programmable depth steps.

The CTD60Mc – ultra deep sea is equipped with a 8 channel data acquisition system with 20 bit resolution. A high long-term stability and automatic self-calibration of the analogue digital converter guarantees stable and precise CTD measurements for many years.

The probe power supply is activated by touching a reed contact with a magnetic rod. LED displays power supply status and optical control of memory access.

The supplied Standard Data Acquisition Software package “SST-SDA” includes the handling of the logging process and the display of online or recorded data with a shared graphic user interface. The “SST-SDA” is a part of our shipment.

Special sensors


Rawdata mode
In this data transmission mode, the probe continuously determines the measured values of the individual sensors through an analog-to-digital conversion. The probe stores the data as the readings of the analog-to-digital conversions. The probe continuously generates raw data sets from the counter readings of the analog-digital conversions and some internal management data. The probe transmits the raw data sets over a binary data protocol to a unit for data display or data storage. The transformation of raw data into physical quantities is carried out in the software application “SDA” after they have been transferred.

If the probe is equipped with a USB interface, it is recommended to read the stored data via this interface, since a shorter read-out time can be achieved. The cable length of the USB interface should not be longer than 5m.
The probes are provided with a program (SDA) for the configuration, readout of stored data, numerical and graphical representation of the data and storage of data for all probes in online- or memory mode.
