Details

The NexSens CB-950 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 45” tall stainless steel tower includes three 40-watt 12VDC unbreakable solar panels, and a center 10” ID x 25.5” tall data well accommodates batteries, data loggers, sensors, and more. Three 6” pass-through 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-950 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.

Cellular Data Buoy Supports Lake Erie Algae Research, Public Outreach

Scientists at Ohio State University are at the fore of the fight against harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie. In fact, they deployed a new cellular data buoy off the shore of Gibraltar Island in 2014, months before the Toledo Water Crisis spurred a boom in monitoring platforms around the lake. That was in part because researchers at the university’s Stone Laboratory, backed by Ohio Sea Grant and housed on Gibraltar, had been seeing a resurgence of blooms in the lake long before international attention came around following the crisis. There was an opportunity, they saw, to continue advancing the mission of research, education and outreach on Lake Erie. The cellular data buoy complimented that in a great way.

Buoy Data Gauge Liberty Island Restoration Project’s Progress

The Liberty Island Restoration Project was an ambitious undertaking to bring back part of the California Delta’s wetlands and habitat. The damage to the wetlands that were once present there had persisted for so long that officials working on the project had to bring in historians just to figure out where the old marshes used to be. That was around 2010, during which year a design for the project was completed and implemented. It created open water channels, emergent tidal marsh lands and floodplain habitats to sustain water fluctuations. All of this was done in an effort to help important wildlife living in the delta as well as fish species like Chinook salmon and delta smelt.

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.
