TideMaster Tide Gauge

The Tidemaster is the cost-effective way to accurately record water height, with the added option of gathering meteorological data using its ultrasonic wind speed and direction sensor.

This small Water Level Recorder, suitable for use in fresh or salt water, can be deployed for up to one year, dependent on the sampling rate. Instrument set-up and data retrieval is via an optional display panel or the PC software supplied. Alternatively, the system can be supplied with radio modules for real time data transmission.
