The NexSens G2-EXO Water Quality Monitor is specifically designed to interface with YSI EXO multi-parameter water quality sondes. It has an integrated data logger and cellular modem to provide real-time connectivity to the sonde's readings. This uniquely simple solution allows existing monitoring locations to add real-time data with minimal effort at a fraction of the cost compared to other data logger solutions.

G2-EXO can be configured directly from any web browser without the need for costly site visits and complicated connections. The system wirelessly transmits water quality data to WQData LIVE’s cloud-based data management platform at user-defined intervals. Paired with WQData LIVE’s configurable alerts, users can be automatically notified of data outliers or other anomalies directly on a mobile device or computer. Historical data can be viewed, graphed, and downloaded from WQData LIVE for additional analysis.

Designed for simplicity, the G2-EXO includes an SP8 solar power pack to allow for long-term deployments without the need for frequent site visits and maintenance. The integrated cellular modem with bundled NexSens hosted service provides real-time communication without the complexities of setting up a cell account. A compact and integrated design with all parts pre-mounted to a 2" NPT pipe makes deployment simple.

Questions & Answers
Can I use any EXO sonde with this system?

Yes although the EXO1 and 2 require the use of a DCP adapter (sold separately) which can be installed by our team prior to shipment.

Do I need any special accessories for the sonde to work with the logger?

All that is needed is the sonde, EXO-field cable and the G2-EXO.

Can I retrieve data manually from the logger itself? From the sonde?

The system is designed for wireless data transmission to WQData LIVE, but data can be manually extracted from the internal SD card if needed. If the sonde is also logging data internally, data can be offloaded from the sonde with YSI’s EXO DCP USB adapter.

Does the product come with the YSI EXO Sonde?

No, the EXO sonde is not included due to the options available when purchasing the sonde. In order to allow customers to get the specific configuration they need, the sonde is sold separately.

Is the EXO powered from the logger or does it require internal batteries?

The EXO is capable of being powered from the logger only, but adding internal batteries can help extend deployment times by reducing the power demand on the logger's power supply.

What locations and applications best suit the G2-EXO?

Rivers, streams and wetlands are the primary deployment locations for the G2-EXO. The system is designed to be pole-mounted on a fixed structure (stream bank, dock, piling, etc.). Flexible parameter options on the EXO sonde platform allow for virtually any type of water quality monitoring applications including harmful algal blooms (HABs), nutrient runoff, dredge turbidity monitoring, dissolved oxygen monitoring, and more.

Is the G2-EXO capable of supporting other instrumentation and parameters aside from what's available on EXO water quality sondes?

No, the G2-EXO is a plug-and-play solution for YSI EXO1, EXO2, and EXO3 water quality sondes only. For other instrument integrations, NexSens offers the multi-purpose X2 data logger. The X2 supports nearly all brands of water quality instruments, water level sensors, weather sensors, etc. and can also support Wi-Fi, radio, and Iridium satellite communications.

Is the G2-EXO an option for monitoring water quality in areas outside of cellular range?

No, the G2-EXO must be deployed in areas with adequate 4G coverage from Verizon or AT&T in the United States. The AT&T modem is also supported on most cellular carriers in Canada.

A Nationwide View shows “Evolution” of Water Quality Concerns

Water quality issues are shifting in the United States’ rivers in big ways. Those changes are driven, in part, by the way the land in a watershed is used and they’re big enough that researchers may need to change the way they think about water quality in the American rivers. “What was striking to us was how perceptions of water quality issues from several decades ago may need to be updated,” said Edward Stets, a U S Geological Survey research ecologist, in an email response to questions from Environmental Monitor. New research by Stets published in Environmental Science & Technology in March highlights these shifting water quality issues.

Lessons Learned from 35 Years of AOC Restoration

This spring, palm warblers, rose-breasted grosbeaks, tree swallows and great blue herons fill Muskegon Lake Nature Preserve with their songs or stately presence. In 1997, the preserve was a dump. The community partnerships and restoration efforts that turned a dump in one corner of Muskegon Lake in west Michigan into a haven for plants, wildlife and recreational fishers ran parallel to other efforts around the lakeshore and the Great Lakes since 1985. In 1985, the United States and Canada chose to focus environmental cleanup efforts on 42 highly polluted areas of concern (AOCs ) around the Great Lakes, including Muskegon Lake. Thirty-five years later, that decision has changed environmental remediation and benefited Great Lakes communities.

Sewage an Unseen and Ignored Threat to Coral Reefs and Human Health

It’s an open, dirty secret that the ocean is used as the ultimate sewage solution. Each year trillions of gallons of untreated waste are sent to the ocean due to a widespread lack of sanitation technology or infrastructure that needs updating as cities and populations grow. As the impact of untreated sewage on the ocean becomes clearer, attention to the problem and strategies for dealing with it have not kept up. “This is a massive problem and it’s been largely ignored,” said Stephanie Wear, senior scientist and strategy advisor for The Nature Conservancy. Wear has turned her attention to raising the alarm about the effects of sewage on coral reefs, which often loses airtime to other pressing issues like climate change and overfishing.
