QUALITY UNDERWATER INSTRUMENTATION
Fixed tidal measurement, port surveys, diving operations or spill monitoring during dredging operations require a variety of equipment to produce Hydrographic and Environmental data. Valeport offer Tide Gauges, Wave Recorders, Current Meters and CTD packages to meet these requirements.
Tidal Monitoring System Case Study: High Level, Detailed Level
The MIDAS DWR Directional Wave Recorder replaces the old Model 730D instrument, and represents a significant advance in PUV wave recording technology.
As well as the standard non-directional data available from the MIDAS WTR, the MIDAS DWR also performs full onboard directional data analysis, allowing real time directional information at an unsurpassed 2° resolution. The unique features of the MIDAS DWR make it the most cost-effective solution to directional wave monitoring requirements in all shallow water coastal applications.
The TideMaster is a small, cost effective Water Level Recorder, specifically designed for applications where the user requires an accurate record of water height, but with the added option of meteorological data via a ultrasonic wind speed and direction sensor.
Suitable for use in fresh or salt water, the TideMaster can be deployed for up to 1 year, dependant on the sampling rate, with instrument set up and data retrieval via an optional display panel or using the PC software supplied. Alternatively, the system can be supplied with radio modules for real time data transmission.
TideStation has the TideMaster Tide Gauge as its core - Valeport’s industry leading Tide Gauge system.
Offering Pressure, Radar and hybrid tidal observation techniques coupled with interfaces to other meteorological and 3rd party systems. All data can be recorded locally and broadcast to a central command and control point as required. Within the TideStation enclosure you will find all required ancillary infrastructure to maintain power to the Tide and Met equipment interfaced and your chosen communications systems.
The VRS-20 is a pulsed k-band radar level sensor developed by Valeport to work seamlessly with the TideMaster tide logger, operate standalone with optional integrated GPRS telemetry or interface to a third party data logger.
Versatile and simple to install, the VRS-20 addresses a number of the issues traditionally associated with water level measurement. Non-contact technology removes the installation, corrosion & fouling issues of submerged sensors, while simplifying datum control. Accuracy and performance are unaffected by changes in water density and atmospheric conditions.
