Our challenge towards blue economy
The aims of the company is designing, manufacturing and selling instruments for the measurement and the monitoring of oceans and fresh waters.
The top one priority of NKE Instrumentation is to be involved in the understanding of the blue lung of the planet by developing smart high-tech products. The fields of applications are rivers, lakes, estuaries, oceans and deep sea.
There are three distinct ranges of products.
- Underwater monitoring instruments that are products designed to measure in-situ the main physico-chemical parameters of fresh and sea water
- Buoys and instrumented systems aim to measure, transmit and retrieve data in any type of environment
- Profiling floats are used for oceanographic and environmental studies of the evolution of oceans and climate. NKE Instrumentation is though involved in the international ARGO program to supply temperature and salinity profiling floats.
The company is involved in large scale projects that bring together the company's know-how multiplicity from the study to the operational maintenance of the solutions provided. The company's priority is the development of new instruments to contribute to the protection of our environment.
MULTIPARAMETER WIMO SONDE
BGC-ARGO PROFILING FLOATS
The WiMo and WiMo Plus probes can measure up to 20 water parameters thanks to its new design. The probe is totally plug & play and configurable since it is possible to remove and add sensors as you see need. These sensors can then be calibrated via the tool and the available calibration interface. This probe is very easy to use thanks to the integration of its own web user-friendly interface compatible with any type of device.
The range of autonomous WiFi data loggers is very easy to use and has its own web interface integrated into the WiSens to configure the sensor. In addition to temperature, pressure, conductivity, salinity and turbidity sensors, the range has extended itself and it is now possible to measure tides, waves and also dissolved oxygen. The web embedded interface is very intuitive and allows the configuration and programming of the sensor missions.
The development of the Argo range of biogeochemical profiling floats is one of the company's priorities. This range has extended itself with a profiling float capable of integrating the 6 basic BGC ARGO variables and it is also possible to add other sensors in addition, such as the UVP6-LP sensor which allows the study and quantification of large particles and zooplankton. These profiling floats take advantage of the new graphical interface to define mission and acquisition parameters.
In June, the nke team went to Le Havre and Rennes for the Seanergy and Carrefour de l’eau trade shows!
The opportunity for us to present our latest innovations and to tell you exclusively about our new products!
The first 2️⃣ floats for the REFINE project were deployed last week in the Labrador sea by Edouard Leymarie from the LOV.
Those Jumbo BGC Argo floats measure the 6 standard BGC variables and the large particles and zooplankton thanks to the underwater vision profiler sensor embedded on the float.
The aim of the REFINE project is to deploy several BGC Argo floats to explore the Twilight Zone!
Few weeks ago we were invited by Herve Balusson and alain reocreux from OLMIX to a meeting with the Ambassador of Bangladesh and the Commercial Counsellor.
