Buoy in the works...
The Nortek Online Group continues developing its knowledge and skill set with the deployment of suface buoy outfitted with a 400 kHz Aquadopp Profiler and GPRS modem for data transmission. The buoy has been delivered to Rauma Group, who are conducting site studies prior to the installation of the nets for a fish farm. Data is hosted by Nortek and the displayed on the web. The solution simplifies the responsibilities of the end user who are more focused on easy to undstand data presentation and less on the details of data management and presentation.
This simplified version of the platform can be expanded to include the following sensors through the use of the analog input channels of the Aquadopp Profiler.
- Conductivity and Temperature
- Optode / oxygen measurements
- Optical backscatter / Turbidity
- Acoustic modem / communication with bottom mounted instruments
