Buoy Range Added to the EIVA Portfolio

The EIVA ToughBoy Panchax is a wave buoy designed for lowest possible total cost of ownership, as the first member of EIVA’s new buoy product range.

The first day of the Oceanology International exhibition in London saw the launch of a new buoy product range produced by the Danish offshore specialist EIVA and offering the lowest possible total cost of ownership.

With 35 years’ experience in the offshore industry, the software and equipment company EIVA continuously leverages its extensive knowledge to develop sensor platforms designed with a strong focus on the interplay with advanced, embedded software.

The most recent result of these endeavors is the launch of a buoy product range, the first member of which is the ToughBoy Panchax.

“ToughBoy Panchax is a wave buoy designed to ensure the lowest possible total cost of ownership in the market achieved through a competitive purchase price together with low service and communications costs. This wave buoy is effectively a software product considering the wave algorithm, the data logging and remote monitoring, and as such it fits EIVA’s strengths perfectly,” said EIVA CEO Jeppe Nielsen.

Cut costs without compromising on data quality
An integrated Teledyne RD Instruments ADCP and a thoroughly-tested, advanced wave sensor provide high-precision current and wave data. The settings and transmission are adjusted according to customer needs, keeping communications expenditures at a minimum.

From harbor monitoring to wave energy studies and any type of wave and current measurement surveys in between, the ToughBoy Panchax is the optimum choice. Additional sensors can be fitted as optional extras, creating a buoy that perfectly matches the customer’s setup.

Long battery life

Electronics with low power consumption and a battery based on intelligent charging technology ensure yearlong battery life and thus long intervals between service inspections, that is, 12 months or more. This will cut the budget that is normally dedicated to inspections by at least 50%.

Simple and secure data transmission and storage

The web-based software solution of the ToughBoy Panchax allows for remote configuration and monitoring, thereby simplifying data transmission.

The acquired data is transmitted to the customer, to EIVA servers as a backup option and to USB drives on the buoy for on-site retrieval. This virtually eliminates the risk of data loss.
