Triskel’s data buoy is a highly cost effective way of monitoring the inshore marine environment in real time. The buoy is tough, light weight, easily deployed, and completely autonomous.
The DataBuoy is capable of accepting inputs from a wide range of different sensors. Typical parameters include: turbidity; salinity; temperature; dissolved oxygen; current speed; depth; weather.
Real time environmental data directly to the internet
GPRS, Iridium or VHF communications upload the data directly to a password protected user web site at intervals configurable from 10 minutes to 24 hours. All you need to control the buoy is your office computer.
Easy to use and fast to deploy
The standard unit needs no setting up; just put in the water. It is ideal for collecting long term trend data and for monitoring transient events such as dredging, construction or spills.
Configurable from your desk
Communication with the buoy is two way. If you want to change factors such as update frequency, alarm levels and calibration constants, you can set them all from your web site without the need to get wet.
Alerts by text message and e-mail
If an alarm threshold is crossed, notifications can be sent automatically to named users by email or text message.
Dense data networks
There is no limit to the number of buoys that can be deployed simultaneously and each is individually addressable from your web site. All buoys are fitted with GPRS, GPS, battery monitoring and solar panels as standard. Weather reporting, on-board data logging and navigation lights are available as an option.
