Dredge Turbidity Monitoring
Building a buoy-based dredge monitoring system does not have to be a difficult endeavor. NexSens buoys and wireless communication capabilities provide a plug-and-play solution for any project.
Open Water Platform
The NexSens MB-300 data buoy offers a stable platform with on-board data logging and telemetry, a center well for turbidity sensor deployment, and capacity for three solar power packs.
The NexSens SDL submersible data logger includes five sensor ports to accommodate multiple turbidity probes in the water column. Turbidity data is sampled and logged with a time and date stamp.
Radio-to-shore, cellular, or Iridium satellite telemetry options deliver real-time data to your computer or mobile device. Communications are integrated into the ruggedized housing of the submersible data logger.
Turbidity Measurement Options
The SDL data logger offers a plug-and-play interface to most turbidity probes, including those by YSI, Hydrolab, In-Situ, FTS, Campbell Scientific, McVan, and WET Labs.
Quick Instrument Access
A hinged tower provides quick, yet secure, access to the SDL submersible data logger and sensor connections. Turbidity probes can suspend either in the perforated bottom pipe or below the buoy.
Flurometers, multi-parameter sondes, temperature strings, weather sensors, depth sonar, and many other sensors are easily added to the system using any of the five sensor ports on the SDL data logger.
A two-point mooring prevents turbidity probes and cables from being cut or tangled in the line. It also allows the sensors to be quickly pulled for maintenance without altering the anchor mooring.
Software and Data Management
Using iChart Live software and the optional WQData Live Web datacenter, dredge operators and project members can quickly access real-time turbidity data and make informed operational decisions as needed.
Automated alarm notifications can alert project personnel when parameters exceed a set threshold. Systems can send alerts via SMS text message or e-mail.
Application engineers are available for training and technical support, both by phone and in person. Our extensive field experience helps ensure seamless implementation of the monitoring project.
