The NexSens RTU-C Remote Telemetry Unit acts as the main cellular or iridium telemetry device for X2 data loggers, while allowing for a fallback to the internal data logger telemetry. RTU-C units are watertight and able to operate in extreme environments. The internal settings allow users to adjust transmission settings via the embedded Wi-Fi. The […]

Configuring a Water Sensor String
Water sensor strings help lake managers who need a real-time temperature profiling system to make smart decisions, and to respond to signs of trouble in enough time to stop problems.
This week on the sensor whiteboard we discuss lake stratification and the methods that scientists employ to monitor these divisions.
Emergency Response Buoy – Easy to Deploy
Emergency response buoys are dictated by the needs of typical emergency situations although there are other deployment situations these buoys can help with.
