APT Sensor and Inductive Modem

Soundnine (S9, USA) is to launch two products at Ocean Business 2015: the Enduro APT Recorder and Ulti-modem inductive modem. With high-accuracy sensors and advanced real-time underwater telemetry, they offer new capabilities and value in ocean observing. The Enduro APT Recorder is a uniquely small, robust instrument that measures acceleration, pressure and temperature, logs internally and transmits data in real time over plastic-jacketed wire rope commonly used on moorings. S9’s dual mode inductive technology is fully compatible with the prevailing inductive telemetry (Sea-Bird), and also offers a fast transmit mode when communicating with an Ulti-modem. The size and power requirements... (read more)

ADV with Optical Sensor Capabilities

YSI Environmental has developed a multiparameter instrument Ðthe YSI ADV6600- that accurately and reliably measures both water quantity (velocity and direction) and water quality. It has accomplished this by integrating YSI water quality sensor technologies with the advanced Acousic Doppler Velocimeter (ADV) technology of SonTek. The ADV6600 has the capability to measure DO, conductivity, temperature, pH, ORP, pressure, velocity, direction, turbidity, chlorophyll, or rhodamine, chloride, ammonia or nitrate, along with other calculated parameters such as specific conductance and salinity.

Multi-sensor Sentinel Solid Streamer

Sercel’s Sentinel MS is a multi-sensor solid streamer to address the needs of the E&P industry for ever-more detailed and accurate images of the subsurface. Sentinel MS builds on the Sentinel solid streamer. In addition to the pressure measurement provided by its hydrophone sensor, the Sentinel MS features two acceleration components offering directional measurements for both cross-line and vertical wave fronts to deliver multi-sensor datasets for enhanced broadband imaging. Fully compatible with Nautilus, Sercel’s powerful all-in-one streamer positioning system, Sentinel MS extends marine acquisition capabilities to a new level. The addition of directional measurements to the most advanced low-noise, low-frequency... (read more)

Triaxis Next Wave Sensor Update

The TRIAXYS Directional Wave Sensor was originally developed by AXYS Technologies Inc. in conjunction with the Canadian National Research Council (NRC) in 1998. The TRIAXYS sensor has recently been updated with several new features. The major change in 2010 involves the TRIAXYS sensor being configured by the WatchMan500 controller, the same controller as used in all AXYS monitoring stations. The TRIAXYS classic sensor is primarily a wave sensor with capability to interface and control a limited number of other sensors. With the addition of the WatchMan500, AXYS main data acquisition and control system used at the core of its monitoring... (read more)

Field-swappable Sound Velocity Sensor

Applied Microsystems (AML) announces the launch of SV-Xchange - the world's only exchangeable, field-swappable sound velocity sensor. Any SV-Xchange sensor can be connected to any Xchange enabled instrument without compromising calibration accuracy.   At time of recalibration, spare calibrated sensors can be shipped to the instrument, allowing the instrument to stay in the field. Recalibrated sensors can be scheduled for just-in-time delivery, eliminating the headache of managing calibration expiry dates. The small sensors - not heavy instruments - can travel to and from the factory, thus saving shipping costs and brokerage fees. Damaged or out-of-calibration sensors can be swapped for... (read more)

Ultra High Accuracy Mini Sensor

Valeport introduces a high accuracy 0.01% pressure sensor, to be fitted to all new Midas based products, and launches the compact and user-friendly Midas SVX2. The Midas SVX2 is a smaller scale version of Valeport's best-selling Midas SVX combined CTD and sound velocity probe, which is favoured by survey companies, military users, through to research organisations. The Midas SVX2 provides an all-encompassing solution for those faced with the need for real time sound velocity data from an SVP using digital 'time of flight', but who also require the salinity and density data from a CTD. Valeport’s new ±0.01% pressure sensor... (read more)

New Space for Sensor Technology

Sensor Technology has opened a new manufacturing facility. The building, purchased in January of 2011 and located immediately adjacent to SensorTech’s previous two building campus, adds a third building to the company’s operations and increases total workspace by twenty-five percent.     The majority of the square footage in the new building has been allocated to Sensor Technology’s piezoelectric powder production, increasing the space for this cornerstone operation by forty percent. The new building also consolidates all machining operations to a single facility and provides dedicated areas for R&D, electronics testing and sales & marketing. By freeing space in the...

Turbidity Sensor with Integrated Wiper

Turbidity measurements are often made in shallow waters and keeping the instrument optical face clear is particularly important. Turner Designs has introduced a turbidity sensor addressing this issue with a simple solution. Turbidity Plus is an accurate single-channel turbidity sensor including an integrated wiper which is triggered by the user. It is designed for integration with multiparameter systems and dataloggers from which it receives power and the wiper trigger. Turbidity Plus delivers a voltage output proportional to the turbidity of the sample which can be correlated to nephelometric turbidity unit (NTU) values by calibrating with a standard of known concentration. Deployable... (read more)

Optech Sensor Receives Award for Technology Innovation

Optech has been awarded the MAPPS 2011 Geospatial Excellence Award for Technology Innovation. The award was given to the ALTM Aquarius, a compact solution for mapping coastal and inland waterways. Compatible with the ALTM Gemini system, Aquarius collects simultaneous land and water-depth measurements, enabling wholly complete data sets that span the land/water interface.     Designed as a complementary sensor to Optech's Lidar bathymetry systems, Aquarius provides depth information in relatively shallow water environments not previously accessible to conventional topographic mapping sensors alone.     (read more)

UV Nitrate Sensor Added to Buoy System

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA, USA) Chesapeake Bay Interpretive Buoy System (CBIBS) is a network of observing platforms that deliver meteorological, oceanographic and water-quality data live to the web at hourly intervals. The network has recently come under budgetary pressure and has been threatened with closure. In a cooperative effort to highlight the utility and value of the system, Satlantic (Canada) has recently partnered with CBIBS Project Manager Doug Wilson to provide a SUNA UV nitrate sensor for the Susquehanna site. It is hoped that the addition of the real-time continuous nutrient time series data will help promote the... (read more)
