Instrumented buoy – water parameters & current flow measurements

This instrumented buoy is an autonomous and automated system used to measure water parameters and current flow. The buoy is designed to be mounted on a frame. It consists in a four buoys networks.

The system mounted on one buoy includes:

 ABIN automaton

 Multiparameter probe

 Weather station

 GPRS transmission (UHF or IRIDIUM)

 Electrical housing
