C-FLUOR Submersible Probes
C-FLUOR are sensitive, extremely low power single wavelength in situ fluorescence and turbidity probes available in several optical configurations spanning a broad range of applications. Factory-calibrated, each C-FLUOR ships with a calibration certificate used to convert the output signal to a specific concentration estimate. The Titanium construction allows for a depth rating of 2,000 meters as well as superior resistance to corrosion. Analog C-FLUOR Probes are pin-compatible with Cyclops Sensors so they are easily integrated into many of the same third-party systems that accept 0-5V signal. Digital C-FLUOR Probes can be integrated with dataloggers that accept ASCII data strings.

Frequently Asked Questions
When should I use my Shade Cap?
How can I power and collect data from C-FLUOR?
Our C-FLUOR probes are analog output fluorometers that output voltage only, data can be collected via any datalogger that accepts a 0-5 volt analog signal. We sell a DataBank Handheld Datalogger, compatible with C-FLUOR, for easy data collection in the field.
C-FLUOR probes can be powered using any 3-15 volt power source. The analog sensors can output measurements as long as there is power supplied. The DataBank allows for continuous measurements at a maximum sample rate of 1 second.
Can C-FLUOR be integrated into CTDs, ROVs, or AUVs?
What preventative maintenance or care should always be done before deploying my C-FLUOR?
What turbidity standards should I use for the C-FLUOR?
AMCO/GFS has turbidity standards for use with the C-FLUOR. Standards can be purchased directly from GFS Chemicals utilizing the information below.

If I want to tow C-FLUOR through a Rhodamine plume, how fast will the sensor respond? What is the instrument response time?
How does the blue green algae sensor or the chlorophyll sensor eliminate the influence of turbidity?
At what distance from the end of the sensor is the measurement taken?
The C-FLUOR can detect materials as far away as 3 inches from the sensor head, which is why Turner Designs recommends at least a 3 inch (7.62 cm) clearance from the optical head when taking measurements. An exception to this would be if you are using the shade cap, as the shade cap is designed as an optical “backstop” for the sensor.
What angle does the C-FLUOR need to be to take a measurement?
Keeping the instrument as close to vertical as possible is recommended.
How much liquid will the C-FLUOR flowthrough cap hold?
The C-FLUOR flowthrough cap will hold 5mL of fluid.
Where can I find information about the C-FLUOR applications and optical specifications?
Please refer to the Optical Specification Guide.
Where can I find instructions on how to install the C-FLUOR Flow Through Cap?
Instructions are available here
Where can I find information about C-FLUOR cables?
Please refer to the Cable Guide.
What is the volume (size) of the area (or the control volume) that C-FLUOR takes the reading from?
