TideStation – Permanent

Valeport’s industry-leading TideMaster Tide Gauge is as the core of Tidestation, bringing 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 is all the ancillary infrastructure required to maintain power to the Tide and Met equipment interfaced and the chosen communications systems. There are two standard TideStation variants: Option 1 – Single Port ipBuffer, TideStation Junction Box, optional Satel UHF radio. Configuration Example: TideMaster, VRS-20 and Pressure Sensor. Option 2 – 4 port ipBuffer, TideStation Junction Box, optional Satel UHF radio. Configuration Example: TideMaster, VRS-20, Pressure Sensor, miniCT, METPak II, plus other instruments.
