OMC-7006 Data-Buoy for Water Quality Monitoring

The OMC-7006 data-buoy is ideal for environmental monitoring projects. It is specifically designed for the measurement of hydrological parameters in lakes, rivers, estuaries and coastal zones. The OMC-7006 is often used near dredging sites to monitor the impact of the dredging activities.



Product Description

OMC-7006 Data-Buoy

The OMC-7006 data-buoy is equipped with the OMC-045-III data logger, which has proven itself in many applications. This logger contains integrated GPS and GPRS, and can be interfaced to radio and satellite modems. The OMC-045-III supports several analogue and digital inputs for communication with the sensors. This allows the logger to be connected to almost any water quality sensor on the market.

The electronics and underwater sensors can easily be removed for maintenance, without taking the buoy out of the water.

Your benefits

The OMC-7006 is a well-proven and complete measure- ment station. The water quality sensors are integrated by Observator on your specification. This allows for maximum flexibility in the parameters to be measured. The buoy it- self, with the solar panels, the batteries, the logger with GPRS and GPS, the signal light and the antenna’s, is a standard product that is deliverable on short notice.
