Details

The NexSens CB-150 Data Buoy is designed for deployment in lakes, rivers, coastal waters, harbors, estuaries and other freshwater or marine environments. The floating platform supports both topside and subsurface environmental monitoring sensors including weather stations, wave sensors, thermistor strings, multi-parameter sondes, Doppler current profilers and other monitoring instruments.

The buoy is constructed of an inner core of cross-linked polyethylene foam with a tough polyurea skin. A topside 13” tall stainless steel tower includes three 6-watt 12VDC solar panels, and a center 10” ID x 13.5” tall data well accommodates batteries, data loggers, sensors, and more. Three 2” passthrough holes with female NPT bottom threads allow for quick connection of instrument deployment pipes and custom sensor mounts. The stainless steel frame supports both single point and multi-point moorings.

The CB-150 Data Buoy is optimized for use with NexSens data loggers. Wireless telemetry options include Wi-Fi, spread spectrum radio, cellular and Iridium satellite. Compatible digital and analog sensor interfaces include RS-232, RS-485, SDI-12, VDC, mA, and pulse count. The top of the instrument well includes 8 pass-through ports for power and sensor interface. Each port offers a UW receptacle with double O-ring seal for a reliable waterproof connection.

Lake Superior Weather Buoy Provides Valuable New Data

A new weather buoy in a remote part of Lake Superior is providing much-needed weather data to local mariners, the National Weather Service and researchers. Scientists from the Superior Watershed Partnership (SWP), Lentic Environmental Services (LES) and the University of Colorado-Boulder recently deployed the buoy on the lake one mile north of Stannard Rock Lighthouse. SWP gained ownership of the lighthouse in 2015. Because the light was built on a large reef in a remote part of the lake, it is one of the most popular trout fishing and charter boat destinations on the Great Lakes. It has also been the location of a NOAA weather station since 1984 and a Great Lakes Evaporation Network monitoring site since 2008.

NexSens CB-Series data buoys offers lineup from compact to powerful

The 2014 line of CB-Series data buoys combines traditional NexSens Technology reliability with a number of new innovations designed to handle real-time data collection applications in waters from the Great Lakes to the Arctic. Each of the four CB-Series data buoys comes equipped with at least three solar panels, pass-through holes for water sensor deployment and topside mounts for weather sensors. But the buoys’ most exciting enhancement is the addition of a spacious, cross-compatible instrument well that protects your delicate electronics “The biggest change is we now have a large data well that allows us to integrate batteries, data loggers and other electronics,” said Paul Nieberding, Fondriest Environmental general manager.

Real-time phosphorous sensor measurements tested on new Lake Erie data buoy

Two new experimental data buoys bobbing on Lake Erie are giving scientists a chance to test new instruments while sharpening their watch over Lake Erie in harmful algal bloom season. A crew from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory and the University of Michigan deployed the buoys in western Lake Erie in the first week of June One will test a wind sensor that's new to the lab. The other will for the first time relay up-to-the-hour measurements of phosphorus levels back to the lab in Ann Arbor, Mich.
