Valeport's New Tide Gauge Promises High Performance & Low Cost
Valeport announces the launch of TideMaster, a compact Water Level Recorder, designed for use in a wide range of fixed or portable survey and tide monitoring operations. Suitable for use in fresh or salt water, the TideMaster is highly accurate and can be deployed for up to a year at a time.
Sales Manager, Kevin Edwards, commented, "TideMaster is an extremely versatile and cost effective new product. It replaces the popular Model 740 and whilst it retains the easy to use features of the Model 740, a lot more enhancements have been made with further provision for additions in the future".
Low power consumption, with both pre-programmed and a user selectable sampling regime, allow for up to a year of autonomous operation, whilst optional telemetry packages provide capabilities for real time operation. As well as recording water level, TideMaster can be provided with an optional ultrasonic wind speed and direction sensor to record meteorological data.
TideMaster can be set up and data retrieved via an optional control/display panel that uses OLED technology, Bluetooth and an SD memory card. Alternatively, it can be plugged into a PC and controlled using Valeport's Windows based software, TideMaster Express. This allows the user to download and display recorded or real time data from single or multiple gauges. TideMaster is also compatible with a wide range of Hydrographic software and tools on the market.
Valeport's bespoke injection moulded housing is rated to IP67 and allows a tool free change of batteries without exposure to the main electronics. A practical and lockable mounting bracket is provided for wall mounting use. Full technical details of TideMaster can be found on the Tide gauge page of Valeport's website, www.valeport.co.uk
