A new portable survey solution for monitoring tide, met and other sensors has been launched by leading British oceanographic and hydrographic instrument specialist, Valeport. The new TideStation (Portable) is a self-contained tidal observation hub which optimises performance of instrumentation.
TideStation (Portable) has Valeport’s industry leading tide gauge system, TideMaster, at its core. Housed in a large rugged ABS case, the compact and robust TideStation (Portable) offers a choice of either UHF or GPRS telemetry with connection to pressure or radar sensors along with interface to other meteorological systems.
The single unit includes all infrastructure required to maintain power to the tide and meteorological equipment and communications system contained within. Accessing data from the water level monitoring equipment within the TideStation (Portable) is easy, all data can be recorded locally and broadcast to a central command and control point as required. If using GPRS telemetry, data can be viewed and managed on a Valeport headed webpage using the Port-Log from Oceanwise software supplied, which is subscription free for 12 months, with the option to subscribe further directly with Oceanwise thereafter.
The corrosion proof, weather-proof, crush-proof and dust-proof TideStation (Portable) weights under 25kg and features a retractable extension handle and wheels for easy transport, the observation hub is suited to a broad range of sectors including port and harbour operations, surveying, dredging and many other applications.
TideStation (Portable) is an evolution of Valeport’s original TideStation unit and a natural extension to Valeport’s tide gauge instrument portfolio, Kevin Edwards, Head of Sales commented:
“Accurate data is at the heart of all successful monitoring, our new TideStation (Portable) safeguards precise reliable instrumentation within a durable housing that helps prolong performance. Simple and easy to use, this turnkey solution is excellent for use in remote or temporary locations and ensures suveyors obtain the highest quality data easily and quickly.”
The TideStation (Portable) is now available to order.
