Compact | Tide & Wave Loggers

Our most compact, lightweight, and versatile depth, and temperature & depth loggers for wave and tide measurements:

With tidal averaging:

  • RBRsolo³ D|tide16pressure
  • RBRduet³ T.D|tide16 — temperature & pressure

With intermittent and continuous wave burst and tidal averaging:

  • RBRsolo³ D|wave16 — pressure
  • RBRduet³ T.D|wave16temperature & pressure

The new single tide and wave recorders provide the ease and flexibility to establish the best sampling regime for your measurements. Both loggers take averages of the pressure readings over longer periods of time and at rates up to 16Hz to provide accurate tide level readings. The wave recorder bursts continuously or intermittently making it easier to measure for example boat wakes. The large number of burst samples makes low frequency waves easier to detect. Tide and/or wave data exports to Matlab®, Excel®, or text files make post processing with your own algorithms easier. Ruskin performs wave analysis, to provide basic information about the wave composition (e.g. wave energy, H1/3, T1/3, Tave and Have).
