SAMBAT Float

The SAMBAT float is one of the easiest ways to deploy a multiparameter probe SAMBAT at sea or on the surface of seawater and it protects the probe against shocks and reduces the development of biofouling on the probe’s body.

The system provided by NKE Instrumentation includes:

 A central body equipped with a 20L float

 Traffic lights and St. Andrew cross

 Data transmission: GPRS

 Designed for easy maintenance without any tool

 Well protected probe against biofouling risks

Features and benefits

  • The SAMBAT float allows  to easily  deploy a  SAMBAT multiparameter probe at sea or on inland bodies of water. It provides protection against shocks and reduces the development of biofouling on the probe’s body.
  • When mounted on the float, the sensors of the SAMBAT are located 1 meter below the water surface. The operation of removing and putting back the mechanical set “SAMBAT support pole” does not require any tool which allows fast and easy maintenance.
