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.

  • High Accuracy tide data +/- 2.7 cm over the range of -2 to 30 ºC provided by:
    • Precision pressure transducer
    • Surface barometric pressure transducer
    • Correction for local salinity & gravity via userdefined inputs
  • Pre-configured for NOS Standard deviation (per NOAA CO-OPS standard)
  • On-board data logging and real-time output
  • Telemetry options
  • Optional solar power
  • Low-power operation and rechargeable batteries allow for long-term unattended operation
  • Surface barometer maintains accuracy with lower maintenance than vented cable systems
  • PUCK v1.3 protocol-compliant for “plug-and-work” ease of system configuration
