Datawell Directional Waverider Buoy MKIII

Datawell Directional Waverider Mk3 Buoy

Datawell Directional Waverider Buoy MKIII

The Datawell Directional Waverider Mk3 Buoy hardly needs any introduction. It is the world's standard for measuring wave height and wave direction. Its success is due to the proprietary well proven and accurate Datawell stabilized platform sensor, enabling wave height measurements by a single accelerometer. For the wave direction, direct pitch and roll measurements are performed needing no integration. In combination with horizontal accelerometers and a compass this forms the complete sensor unit, the heart of the instrument.

Key Features

Measures wave height for wave periods of 1.6 to 30 seconds.

Measures wave direction.

Measures water temperature.

GPS for buoy monitoring and tracking through HF link.

Internal logger.

LED flash antenna.

AIS Tracking (Beta version).

0.9 m (0.7 m) diameter spherical hull of AISI 316.

3 years (1 year) battery life.
