Tide Monitoring System
The FSI tide monitoring system is a complete solution for mooring and other long-duration fixed-site deployments. The pressure module is a precision strain-gauge sensor for measuring water level; barometric pressure compensation is provided by a sensor mounted in the system´s surface enclosure, which also incorporates rechargeable battery and system communications. A 20 m cable connects the underwater and surface enclosure. Non-corroding materials are used to ensure long sensor life with minimal maintenance. An optional solar charger allows for long-term, unattended operation.
Data is recorded in the system´s 256MB internal memory and can be output locally in real-time via RS-232 (optional RS-485) or reported remotely via RF (radio, cell) or satellite telemetry.
