Turner Designs recently configured an enclosure for stationary field deployments housing its DataBank Datalogger.
The new DataBank Datalogger Station offers great resistance to the environment allowing users to log data continuously during long term deployments. It approximates IP 66 and Nema 4x providing a degree of protection against corrosion, windblown dust and rain, and water splash-down. The DataBank Datalogger Station stores up to 9,999 records as well as 16 calibrations and uses an intuitive GUI interface for easy sensor configuration, calibration, and data download via USB connection to a PC. The DataBank’s internal memory enables unattended datalogging at user-defined intervals with the fastest datalogging interval at 1 datapoint/second. Power is supplied to the DataBank & Cyclops either from the internal battery or from an external source such as a marine battery for extended deployments. The Databank Datalogger Station comes with one factory-installed, underwater rated impulse cable to be used as a power and communication cable with Turner Designs’ Cyclops sensors. Standard cable lengths offered by Turner Designs are 5M, 10M, 25M or 50M. Standard Cyclops optical kits are available for detecting: in vivo Chlorophyll, Crude Oil, Refined Fuels, CDOM/FDOM (dissolved organic material), Blue/Green Algae, Fluorescein Dye, Rhodamine Dye, PTSA Dye, Optical Brighteners, Tryptophan and Turbidity. Cyclops Fluorometers can also be configured with custom optics for specialized applications per customer request.
