Details

The iSIC-MAST system includes the data logger and solar panel pre-mounted to a 2" diameter pole to create a truly plug-and-play data collection and sensor interface platform. The system integrates a NexSens iSIC data logger and 20-watt solar power kit - all in a compact, pre-configured package. Simply thread the system to any 2" NPT male pipe thread, connect the solar panel & battery, wire the sensors, and setup a project using iChart software - it's that simple!

The iSIC data logger arrives ready for long-term deployment. All electronics are housed in a rugged, NEMA 4X enclosure constructed of heavy-duty fiberglass. The built-in 8.5 amp-hour sealed lead acid battery provides 12 volt power to the system, and the battery is continuously charged using solar power. Polymer-coated circuit boards, sealed connectors, corrosion-resistant stainless steel hardware, and built-in lightning protection ensure reliable performance in the harshest conditions. All sensors are cabled through Sealcon gland fittings to ensure protection from the elements.

NexSens iChart Software is a Windows-based program for interfacing to an iSIC data logger or network of data loggers. The iChart Setup Device Wizard includes built-in drivers and a step-by-step interface for setting up and configuring remote monitoring sensors and systems. When connected, the user can quickly configure sample & log intervals, upload data, or troubleshoot communications.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
For turbidity monitoring, what type of sensor is suitable to attach to the iSIC-MAST logger?
The iSIC-MAST data logger is compatible with most turbidity sensors on the market. From our current offering, users can choose between the PONSEL DIGISENS turbidity sensor or the Turner Designs Cyclops-7 turbidity sensor. The iSIC-MAST data logger can also be integrated with the YSI 6-series or EXO sondes and their respective turbidity sensors.
What additional software is required to download the data?
The iSIC-MAST data logger is used with NexSens iChart Software. This is a Windows-based program that can access the data from a direct-connect cable.
Do I need the grounding kit?
The NexSens iSIC-MAST system does not need a grounding kit if it is mounted to a grounded metal pole. If it will be mounted to a different material, then a grounding kit is recommended.
Can the enclosure be locked?
Yes, the fiberglass enclosure can be padlocked without any additional modifications.

Ohio State University's experimental wetland research park seeks scientists

Ohio State University’s experimental wetland park sits nestled in a bend in the Olentangy River, where things are changing in Ohio’s capital city. The Wilma H. Schiermeier Olentangy River Wetland Research Park is in a rebuilding phase after the retirement of the original director, Bill Mitsch. He coordinated the construction of the wetlands, starting in 1992. Lynn McCready, interim director for the wetlands, is working to get more research underway at the facility. “Our primary focus of study will still be on the wetland ecology, but we do want to widen that focus to other aquatic ecosystems,†she said. The experimental wetland has opened its doors to scientists interested in doing research there.

Inside the Struggle to Designate Lake Erie's Water Impaired

Since the mid-1800s, Ohio has been a locus for industry . As the state cranked out steel, rubber, automotive parts, appliances, glassware, and refined oil, its economy grew—but pollution also became a serious problem . Factories dumped refuse into rivers and into Lake Erie, agricultural runoff ended up there, and city sewers also emptied into the lake. By the late 1960s, the Cuyahoga River had caught on fire, and the shores of Lake Erie were lined with dead fish as algal blooms flourished in its waters. The fiery river and the presumed “death†of Lake Erie prompted changes at both the local and national level. Leaders in Cleveland worked to improve the sewage system and monitor water quality more effectively.

Deltas in Decline: Mapping the Retreating Seafloor of the Mississippi River Delta

The rapid coastal land loss that the state of Louisiana has been experiencing over the past century has been reported on many times. We know that Louisiana loses about 1 football field's worth of land every hour, and that some of the first “climate change refugees†in the US are coming from Louisiana as towns like Isle de Jean Charles disappear into the water. New research from a Louisiana State University (LSU) team reveals that land loss is also occurring underwater. The disappearing seafloor in the Mississippi River Delta (MRD) is threatening various marine flora and fauna, and contributing to pollution in the Gulf of Mexico. The team mapped the shrinking seafloor in their study, detailing the effects the loss is having on the region.
