SeaView Systems SVS-603HR Wave Sensor

The SVS-603HR Wave Sensor is an augmented version of the highly accurate SVS-603 wave sensor that reports heading, wave height, wave period and wave direction via RS-232 or logs to its on-board data logger.

Features

  • Plug-and-play interface with the full line of NexSens CB-Series data buoys
  • Sophisticated onboard electronics provide near-real-time wave statistics
  • On-board data logger capable of logging as much as twenty years of wave data

The SeaView Systems SVS-603HR represents a new generation in accuracy and completeness for wave sensing electronics whose features include:

  • Low power consumption; fits the smallest power budget
  • Small environmental footprint; sold packaged or as bare PCB
  • Sensors account for 3-D motion, rotation and compass heading in all dimensions to cover nine degrees of freedom
  • Onboard electronics provide near-real-time wave statistics
  • Variable sample set size (256, 512, 1024, 2048 or 4096)
  • On-board temperature compensation
  • On-board data logger capable of logging as much as twenty years of wave data, depending on desired outputs
  • Easy configuration to match exact sensing rate and output requirements
  • Readily interfaced with transmitter using NMEA or other configurable data output
  • Sampling rates from 1 to 8Hz (user configurable)

The SVS-603HR can be used to replace existing sensors, to upgrade existing buoys, or to add wave sensing capabilities to even the most compact buoys. Among the wave data that are available as outputs from the sensor are:

  • Significant wave height in meters (Hs)
  • Wave period in seconds
  • Wave direction in degrees from north
  • North, east and up displacement time series
  • First-5 Fourier wave coefficients
  • Maximum wave height (Hmax)
  • Wave period at Hmax
  • Wave energy
  • Spectrum (raw or processed)
  • Heading in degrees
  • Custom outputs as required
Other outputs or data manipulations can be incorporated via firmware updates or through calculations on the available data stream.
Questions & Answers
Can I use this sensor with my own data logger?

The SVS-603HR wave sensor reports calculated wave statistics via RS-232 with multiple output formats including NMEA, so you just need to make sure the data logger in question supports RS-232 with a compatible format. All of the NexSens X2 data loggers are compatible with the SVS-603HR wave sensor.

Caring for the Chesapeake: Supporting the Iconic Bay Starts with Good Monitoring Data

The Chesapeake Bay is enormous: the Bay and its tidal tributaries have 11,684 miles of shoreline—more than the entire U.S. west coast. It is the largest of more than 100 estuaries in the United States and the third largest in the world. The Bay itself is about 200 miles long, stretching from Havre de Grace, Maryland, to Virginia Beach, Virginia. But the Chesapeake Bay isn’t just enormous--it’s enormously important. The  Chesapeake Bay Program  reports that its watershed covers about 64,000 square miles and is home to more than 18 million people, 10 million of which live along or near the Bay’s shores.

Treating Harmful Algal Blooms: A Natural Progression

Some of us happen upon the subject of our life’s work by accident, some of us are born into it, and some of us ease into it over time. For Tom Johengen, Research Scientist for Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) and Director of Michigan Sea Grant , choosing to study Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) was “a natural progression” from his days as a grad student investigating best management practices for controlling nonpoint source nutrient pollution. “I’ve been the research scientist with CIGLR since my postdoc in 1991, 31 years, and I’ve been the Director of Michigan Sea Grant for the past 3 years. When I began my postdoc with CIGLR we were just starting to study the impacts of the recently invaded zebra mussels.

The Coevolutionary Arms Race: Fungus-Growing Ants and Social Parasites

Despite the negative stereotypes surrounding social parasites, Rachelle Adams, Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University, knows just how important host-parasite relationships are to evolution. Like many ecologists, Adams, Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University, found her passion for nature in childhood. “It began when I was a kid. I had this general interest of nature, and I loved to spend time in the forest, exploring,” she recalls. Her desire to work with wildlife was solidified in college. “I didn’t know exactly what direction I was going to head in but the ecology and evolution classes I took were really central to shifting my perspective on ‘what is biology.’ It opened my eyes to seeing nature in a different way,” she explains.
