Hyperion Chlorophyll a Sensor

Valeport’s Hyperion Chlorophyll a Fluorometer sensor delivers high-performance measurements of Chlorophyll a, in a compact & robust package ideal as a standalone sensor, for ROV and AUV integration or used as part of a multi-sensor array and data logger.

Offered as standard in a 6000m depth rated, titanium housing the Hyperion Fluorometer has a wide range (9-28V DC) isolated power supply, data output up to 16Hz and RS232, RS485 and Modbus RTU communication protocols. Hyperion offers an industry-leading dynamic range with no adjustment of gain settings required.

Hyperion Fluorometers can be supplied in a more rugged form that includes Acetal protection rings, a shaped anti-snag connector cover and a Kevlar weave protected cable.
