A portable survey solution for monitoring of Tide, Met and other sensors, the TideStation Portable is housed in a large, rugged ABS case.
There is of choice of either UHF or GPRS telemetry, with connection to Pressure or Radar sensors, along with interface to other meteorological systems. Data is recorded locally and broadcast to base stations as required.
