AP-2000/ AP-2000-D – Advanced portable multi-parameter Aquaprobe
The AP-2000 and AP-2000-D packages come with the most common water quality parameters included. Both probes feature our advanced optical DO technology and give options to install 2 additional sensors to the probe.
The AP-2000 is the smaller of our advanced portable multi-parameter water monitoring probes. It comes with a range of standard sensors included, it also offers some customization options that allow you to add even more sensors to the probe. All of our probes are constructed from tough marine grade aluminium that has been hard anodized, making it suitable for use in both fresh and salt waters.
Standard parameters on the AP-2000
- Optical DO
- Specific EC
- Absolute EC
The AP-2000 features 2 Auxiliary sockets to allow you to add further sensors to the probe.
The probe can be used with a variety of cable lengths via the AquaConn Connectors. Cables available in 3, 10, 20 and 30m lengths as standard.
There are 3 simple choices to make to customise the probe.
The probe comes with 1 Ion Selective Electrode (ISE) socket and 1 optical electrode socket, plus an option to add a depth sensor!
Probes are supplied with blanking plugs in the ISE and optical electrode ports as standard. Simply unscrew these to add your extra electrodes.

Using the AP-2000-D as a water level logger
The AP-2000-D features a depth sensor. This sensor is capable of measurement accuracy of 0.5%FS.
This is very comparable to a dedicated water level logger such as the LeveLine-ECO: 0.2%FS, and the LeveLine (titanium): 0.1%FS.
The depth is zeroed automatically whilst the conductivity is reading zero. As soon as the conductivity registers over 0 the probe depth begins to be calculated.
Once the probe is lowered to the desired depth it must be secured, then using the GPS Aquameter the depth can be zeroed once again.
Now the AP-2000-D will detect small changes in the water level and display them as a positive or negative change.
