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.

*To ensure reliable data transmission, confirm the availability of Verizon 4G service at deployment location.

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...

A happy oyster is a happy tourist: Vester Field Station’s monitoring work on the southwest Florida coast

A clean environment doesn’t just mean improved biodiversity and fresher air. It also means increased real estate demand. That fact was cemented in 2015 after a Florida Realtor’s report tied hundreds of millions of property values to the Secchi disk depth of the surrounding water. The report was explicit about how important the environment was and how it should be treated as such. “Policymakers and the public would benefit from research into the possible effects of Everglades restoration on water quality in the estuaries of Martin and Lee Counties,” concluded the report.

Environmental DNA from Waterways Could Be a New Tool in Monitoring Feral Pigs

When pigs get out of their pens, they can really tear up a landscape. Five million pigs in 39 states can tear up a lot of landscape. “They’re one of the top 100 invasive species in the world. Anywhere wild pigs are not natural and they show up, they do a lot of damage to other species,” said Dwayne Etter, a research specialist with Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources and a part of a research team that tested a new feral swine monitoring technique that uses environmental DNA. Environmental DNA (eDNA) is genetic material organisms lose in the environment. If a pig crosses a creek or defecates in it, a researcher, in theory, should be able to pull that DNA out of the water further downstream.

Birds, Fish and Shifting Sediment; How Lake Erie Buoys Measure It All

Since its population bottomed out, the federally-endangered Piping Plover in the Great Lakes has made a comeback for the ages.  A population that once measured approximately 17 pairs and rebounded, hitting 76 pairs in 2017. The same year that count was made, the plovers had also returned to Gull Point, a nesting location that hadn’t been used in more than 60 years.   In an effort to understand some of the conditions that have allowed this species to return to its habitat, researchers have directed their attention toward a curious instrument for help. A buoy that floats off the coast of Presque Isle State Park , near where Gull Point is located.
