NexSens UW Field Wireable Plug
- Allows for weather-tight connection from a flying lead sensor cable to a NexSens UW-8 connector
- Capable of being connected in the field without any special tooling
- Vented version allows UW-8 connection of vented sensor cables

The NexSens UW-FWP provides a quick connection from a flying lead sensor cable to a NexSens UW-8 port. Easy to connect and modify, the field wireable plug is the best way for users to add connectivity to existing equipment without the need for factory performed connectorization. Simply open the adapter and screw the cable's wires to the correct terminals and slide the hood down over the connection for a weather-tight seal.
The UW-FWP-V version offers the same connectivity options as the standard version, but adds an IP69K vent out the side. This vent allows sensors with vented cables to equalize to the ambient pressure while maintaining a weather-tight seal.

The Charles River used to be a swimming hotspot for Cambridge and Boston residents.
Decades of industrial pollution and nutrient runoff have degraded water quality and eliminated public swimming in the Lower Charles, but a movement is afoot to get Boston and Cambridge back in the water. One step toward the goal of a safely swimmable river—without the need to obtain a permit, as is now necessary—is detecting and managing the harmful algal blooms that appear on the river.
An experimental floating wetland and new research and analysis of water quality data that shows a possible effective detection system for algal blooms on the Charles River are two new steps toward the goal of safe, accessible swimming.Read More
The Gulf Stream, the massive western boundary current off the east coast of North America, moves water from the Gulf of Mexico north and west across the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a lot of energy in that much moving water and researchers are trying to put it to use.
Although the Gulf Stream’s path shifts (researchers say it acts like a wiggling garden hose), in a couple of spots, it stays relatively stable. At one such spot off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, researchers have dropped moorings and research instruments to study the current with the eventual goal of harnessing it for renewable energy.Read More
In early 2020, Michigan found itself facing one of the worst outbreaks of Covid-19 in the country. Though it’s close to second nature now, businesses, schools and governments were suddenly forced to conduct business without close contact. Universities and research institutions had to pause some scientific research. Whatever was able to continue slowed to a crawl.
Around the Great Lakes, a network of buoys monitors dozens of water quality parameters and lake conditions, reporting them in real time. This year, the monitoring season was cut a bit short as Covid-19 restrictions hit in the weeks before buoys were set to be deployed.Read More
