POWER AND DATA CONNECTION WITH A SEABED CABLE. CONTINIOUS CONNECTON GUARANTEED
Providing high-resolution vertical profiles of the water column.
The submersed profiler works at the bottom of the sea safe from the waves and storms on the surface. It is an ideal solution for regions where ice covers the sea during the winter.
The CTD is attached to a subsurface float that gives it positive buoyancy. Profiler’s winch raises the CTD to the surface by unwinding the cable from a drum. Constant readings are taken on the way resulting in a high-resolution vertical profile of the water column. The measured data is sent to Flydog’s advanced computing backend system over a seabed cable. The seabed cable also provides the system with power.
We have experience in integrating CTD-s from Sea-Bird, YSI, Idronaut. Other CTD-s can be integrated when sufficient documentation is provided. Our aim is to open up more opportunities for environmental data acquisition. The uniqueness of our innovation lies in using of multi-vendor sensors and seamless data collection, a straightforward approach to use any sensor needed.
The profiler can be controlled over a web-browser based user interface in real time allowing to get near real-time readings and make sure that the system has no downtime. It is possible to configure the profiling parameters but also take over the winch control manually.
SUBMERSED PROFILER ‘SALLA’ BROCHURE
THERE IS MORE TO THE STORY.
Submersed Profiler ‘Salla’ can be powered also by a renewable energy solution. We can provide solar panels and wind turbines for remote locations that do not have connection to the grid.
IF IT IS POSSIBLE, WE CAN DO IT.
TAKE CONTROL. BE INFORMED.
Salla has two-ways communication making it controllable in real time.
Current methods for collecting data from marine environment are expensive. The cost for merely running a ship to carry out a study in one location makes up 80% of the overall monitoring budget. The platform may be anchored in one location for long periods of time – this eliminates the need for constant vessel traffic, thus reducing the costs significantly.
It is possible to change the profiling depths and times whenever needed. It also possible to make manual profiles allowing quick reacting times. It is straightforward to set up alerts to different parameters. For example, when measured parameters go out of preset range, then the system sends out SMS’s and e-mail alerts.
Continuous monitoring of the vertical water column provides extremely useful knowledge. The plot below is created with data collected with a submersed profiler deployed near Keri island in the Baltic Sea. The submersed profiler was ordered and is used by Marine Systems Institute at Tallinn University of Technology.
REAL WORLD PERFORMANCE.
The unprecedented level of real-time data monitoring enabled by our products, have allowed our customers to be more critical, thorough and have access to consistently reliable source of information at their fingertips.
