Meteorology Sensors

Marine Wind Monitor

Model 05106

The Wind Monitor MA is an accurate and reliable wind sensor specifically designed for the rigors of the marine environment.

The wind speed sensor is a four blade helicoid propeller. Unique transducer produces a pulse signal without electrical contacts or slip rings. The wind direction sensor is a durable molded vane. Vane angle is sensed by a precision potentiometer housed in a sealed chamber. All materials are carefully selected for corrosion resistance and maximum durability in the harsh marine environment. Stainless steel bearings are used throughout. Special waterproof lubricant further enhances reliability. The instrument mounts on standard 1 inch pipe. Separate signal conditioning circuits are available to provide voltage or current signals when needed (see below). Each is supplied in a weatherproof junction box with mounting hardware.

Middleton Solar CN1-R Net Pyrradiometer Detailed Specification



Thermopile sensor has flat spectral response.
Diagonal white lines on the sensor selectively reflect shortwave radiation (the lines are transparent to longwave) and thus balance the spectral response.
Semi-rigid polythene domes protect the sensors from air temperature fluctuations.
Domes inflated by blowing into a check valve in the handle and remain inflated indefinitely.
The handle contains silica gel to prevent internal condensation
(the desiccant can be inspected through a window in the handle).
User's Guide and Calibration Certificate included.

The CN1-R can be used in conjunction with the Middleton Solar EQ16/E Pyrano-albedometer for applications requiring separation of the shortwave component (0.3 to 3μm) from the total net radiation signal.
Optional accessories are a Signal Amplifier and a hand-operated Dome Inflator.

SOLAR TOTAL PYRANOMETER

The Middleton EQ08-S is a precision pyranometer for the measurement of global solar irradiance on a plane surface. It exceeds the international accepted specifications for a high quality pyranometer. The EQ08-S incorporates a second generation precision thermoelectric sensor that has exceptionally low directional error without compromise to signal strength or response time. The EQ08-SE version has an in-built amplifier to give a millivolt output for easy signal measurement.

WATER COLUMN SENSORS

Chlorophyll-a

The Environmental Characterization Optics (ECO) series of single channel fluorometers
delivers both high resolution and wide ranges across our entire line of parameters using
14 bit digital processing. The ECO series excels in biological monitoring and dye trace
studies. The potted optics block results in long term stability of the instrument and the
optional anti-biofouling technology delivers truly long term field measurements.


Chlorophyll-a
Chlorophyll-a fluorescence is an indicator of active phytoplankton biomass and chlorophyll concentrations. This measurement is used for tracking biological variability and abundance in the water column.
Colored Dissolved Organic Matter
The CDOM ECO allows you to obtain CDOM fluorescence across a wide range of environments, from mangrove swamps to oligotrophic blue water.
Ships with ECOView Host software
Optional integrated Bio-wiper™ and/or copper faceplate for anti-fouling
Optional integrated self-logging; 1 Mb memory
Full ocean depth model available
Uranine (fluorescein) & Rhodamine
The ideal combination of linearity, sensitivity and range for dye studies.
Detection limits in parts per trillion allows for precise patch determination and first arrival timing as well as reducing the necessary initial dye concentration.
Phycoerythrin & Phycocyanin
ECO phycobilin fluorometers have the high resolution necessary for early detection of either blue-green (phycocyanin) or brown (phycoerythrin) algae. These fluorometers are relative measurement instruments and should be calibrated by cell counts for a particular water mass.

Dissolved Oxygen

The OxyGuard Standard Probe - the probe that revolutionised oxygen monitoring 

Click for data sheet

The probe that you can purchase today is even better than the probe introduced in 1987 that helped revolutionize fish farming and make modern aquaculture the industry it is today.Today's OxyGuard Standard Probe is hermetically sealed. If needed you can open it to replace the membrane and renovate it completely, but this should not be needed for many years.

The measurement stability of the OxyGuard Standard Probe is also very high indeed. A probe measuring in air will maintain accuracy even when subjected to a sudden 20 degree celcius temperature change. The sensitivity of a probe measuring in clean air at room temperature will remain the same for at least 3 years. This proves that the OxyGuard probe is not, like some other probes, affected by "ageing".

OxyGuard believe that the OxyGuard Standard probe is more accurate, needs less attention and maintenance and has a lower total cost of ownership than any other oxygen or dissolved oxygen probe offered to the aquaculture industry today.
