The CB-50 Data Buoy is designed for short-term projects and quick deployment in emergency response situations including industrial spills and natural disasters. The buoy can be deployed from small boats, large vessels or even helicopters, making it the ideal choice for applications where water needs to be monitored at a moment’s notice. Compatible instruments include turbidity sensors, dissolved oxygen sensors, hydrocarbon sensors, fluorometers, multi-parameter sondes, pressure transducers, depth sonar and more.
The buoy is constructed of an inner core of cross-linked polyethylene foam with a tough polyurea skin and stainless steel frame. The 5,5" ID center hole houses the SDL500 data logging system, which includes integrated power supply and optional wireless antenna. A removable topside foam tower protects the electronics, supports solar marine lights, and offers a convenient lifting point via (3) 5/8" eyenuts. Optional accessories include instrument cages and mounting clamps to secure instruments to the platform.
The CB-50 Data Buoy is designed to accommodate NexSens SDL500 submersible data loggers. Wireless telemetry options include spread spectrum radio, cellular and Iridium satellite. The SDL500 is configured with five sensor ports for connection to devices with industry standard communication protocols. Compatible digital and analog sensor interfaces include RS-232, RS-485, SDI-12, VDC, mA, and pulse count. All sensor connections feature a double O-ring seal for a reliable waterproof connection.
