Tide System Features

  • High Accuracy tide data – ±2.7 cm over the range of -2 to 30°C
  • Pre-configured for NOS Standard deviation (per NOAA CO-OPS standard)
  • On-board data logging and real-time output provide data where/when you need it
  • Telemetry and solar-power options allow for remote reporting of tide data
  • Low-power operation and rechargeable batteries allow for long-term unattended operation
  • Surface barometer maintains accuracy with lower maintenance than vented cable systems
  • PUCK v1.3 protocol-compliant for “plug-and-work” ease of system configuration
