New tidal observation hub delivers turnkey solution for surveying
Sep 13 2016 Read 731 Times
Successful monitoring efforts depend upon accurate data and Valeport has introduced a new self-contained tidal observation solution, the TideStation, which optimises performance of instrumentation and provides a simple to install and maintain tidal observation hub.
TideStation has been designed to be flexible in its configuration and has Valeport’s industry leading TideMaster tide gauge at its core. The compact and robust TideStation unit offers pressure, radar and hybrid tidal observation techniques coupled with interfaces to other meteorological, telemetry and third party systems.
Simplicity of installation and use was at the forefront of the TideStation’s development. The single unit includes all infrastructure required to maintain power to the tide, meteorological equipment and communications system contained within. Specifically designed as a low-cost turn-key solution, TideStation is suited to a broad range of sectors including port and harbour operations, surveying, dredging and many other applications.
Accessing data from the TideStation is easy, it is recorded locally and then broadcast to a chosen command and control point as required. This can be enhanced with the addition of Port-Log.net from Oceanwise for data management and publishing.
Internal battery power is provided along with options to support external power via solar panels or mains supply .
The TideStation is a natural extension to Valeport’s tide gauge instrument portfolio, Kevin Edwards, sales and marketing manager commented:
“Accurate data is critical to successful monitoring. Valeport delivers reliable instrumentation and the new TideStation safeguards this equipment to help customers ensure they obtain the highest quality data easily and quickly. For customers, this turn-key solution gives them value for investment as it offers reassurance that their environmental monitoring equipment is easily and correctly installed within a durable housing which will prolong performance.”
