TWR-2050HT recorder measures both the tidal action and wave characteristics. The pressure transducer is vented to facilitate automatic correction for atmospheric pressure fluctuations. Tidal averaging time is user-selectable to remove the effect of wave activity.
Wave measurements are taken as bursts with rates that can be 1, 2, or 4Hz. Wave sampling is achieved by taking 512, 1024, 2048 or 4096 samples at the selected burst rate. The TWR-2050HT can be configured to trigger burst data collection at fixed times. Software is provided to analyze the wave data to reveal the wave characteristics like significant wave height and period, and more.
