The 4019 model is a compact fully integrated sensor for measuring the electrical conductivity of seawater, designed to be mounted directly on the Recording Doppler Current Profiler RDCP 600.

Sensor Measurements

  • Salinity (Water)

Notes, Considerations & Recommendations

Conductivity Sensor 4019 is available in three depth ratings as well: 6000m (4019DW; Deep Water), 2000m (4019IW; Intermediate Water) and 300 m (4019SW; Shallow Water).

Outputs data in both RS-232 and proprietary format. Sensor available in A and B versions; version B has enhanced accuracy compared to version A.

In RS-232 mode the output is: Conductivity in mS/cm, Temperature in deg C, as well as calculated Salinity, Density and Speed of sound.
