Powerful

The platform integrates three 30-watt solar panels on the tower with space for up to three 28 A-Hr batteries in the data well.

Tower

The stainless steel tower includes a top mounting plate for solar marine lights and radar reflectors. Mounts are also available for weather sensors, video cameras and other topside instruments.

Data Well

A 10-inch diameter by 22-inch tall data well provides a watertight housing for batteries, data loggers, sensors, and other hardware.

Connections

The data well lid provides pass-through connections for sensors, power, venting, and more. When integrated with the optional NexSens X2-CB data logger, the system is truly plug-and-play.

Top-to-Bottom Ports

Three 4-inch pass-through ports allow for sensors to be mounted underwater while securely routing the cable. Instrument deployment pipes and custom sensor mounts attach to 4-inch NPT bottom threads.

Solar Beacon

The optional solar marine light has a one to four nautical mile range and securely mounts to the buoy top plate for maximum visibility.

Data Logging

The X2-CB data logger replaces the standard pass-through data well lid for turnkey systems. Alternatively, 3rd party data loggers can be integrated by the user inside the data well.

Wireless Communications

Communication options using the X2-CB data logger include Wi-Fi, radio-to-shore, cellular, and Iridium satellite.

Built to Last

Constructed of cross-linked polyethylene foam with a heavy polymer skin and an indestructible stainless steel frame, the CB-650 is designed for years of service.
