They carry a variety of sensors including a Seabird Electronics conductivity and temperature sensor pair as well as pressure sensor and altimeter transducer. In addition it can carry a SBE model 43 oxygen sensor, an Aanderaa Optode model 4831 oxygen sensor, many versions of WET Labs ECO model sensors for backscatter and fluorometry, and a variety of other serial-communicating sensors.
