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.
The stainless steel tower includes a top mounting plate for solar marine light and radar reflector. Mounts are also available for weather sensors, video cameras and other topside instruments.
A 10-inch diameter by 22-inch tall data well provides a watertight housing for batteries, data loggers, sensors, and other hardware.
The data well lid provides pass-through connections for sensors, power, venting, and more. When integrated with the optional NexSens data logger and connectorized lid, the system is truly plug-and-play.
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.
The optional solar marine light has a one to three nautical mile range and securely mounts to the buoy top plate for maximum visibility.
The data well lid is pre-configured to accommodate the NexSens data logger. Alternatively, third party data loggers can be housed inside the data well.
Waterproof telemetry modules securely mount to the buoy top plate. Communication options include radio-to-shore, cellular and Iridium satellite.
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.
