The OMC-7012 data buoy is ideal for environmental monitoring projects. It is the bigger brother of the popular OMC-7006 data buoy. Both are specifically designed for the measurement of hydrological parameters in lakes, rivers, estuaries and coastal zones. The OMC-7012 can also support meteorological instruments.
The OMC-7012 is equipped with the OMC-045-III data logger, which has proven itself in the OMC-7006. 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 meteorological or 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.
