YSI has announced that it will launch its Castaway CTD technology – designed to provide fast, accurate hydrologic profiling – at the Wastewater and Environmental Monitoring (WWEM) 2010 conference.

The Castaway device, which is simply thrown into water and retrieved manually, automatically records conductivity and temperature profile data, depth and GPS position, meaning that no field notes or computers are necessary.

The company, which will be found on Stand 79, will also showcase its new Pro Quatro water-quality monitoring system as well as a fast-response pH sensor.

The Quatro is an attachment option for the Pro Plus series of portable meters that provides four ports to measure temperature/conductivity, DO and any two ISEs from pH, ORP, ammonium, chloride or nitrate.

In the hydrology sector, YSI Hydrodata will demonstrate a new version of the Riversurveyor M9, a nine-beam acoustic Doppler profiler offering multiple acoustic frequencies that adjust automatically to provide accurate measurements from 0.06m to 30m depths.

Also at WWEM, the company will display a highly sensitive bubbler water-level sensor from Design Analysis Associates featuring a satellite data collection and communication capability.
