RBR Launches Next Generation Data Loggers – RBRduo and RBRvirtuoso
Kanata, Ontario (April 10th, 2012) - RBR Ltd. is pleased to announce the release of their next generation dual and single channel loggers, the RBRduo and the RBRvirtuoso. Built through years of experience and innovation, the new loggers have been redesigned to improve their reliability and usability. The next generation loggers support longer deployments and true USB download and large capacity memory.
The main features include:
- Long deployment with eight CR123A batteries (optional extended body with 16 batteries)
- Storage of over 30 million readings internally
- True USB download speed
- RS-232 and RS-485 support for remote telemetry or long cabling
- Optional averaging and fast sampling up to 6 Hz
- Unique desiccant holder in the battery end cap
The RBRduo is available in four standard configurations:
- RBRduo T.D measures temperature and depth
- RBRduo T.DO measures temperature and dissolved oxygen
- RBRduo T.D |wave measures temperature and waves
- RBRduo T.D |tide measures temperature and tides
The RBRvirtuoso is available in the following standard configurations:
- RBRvirtuoso T measures temperature
- RBRvirtuoso D measures depth
- RBRvirtuoso DO measures dissolved oxygen
- RBRvirtuoso BPR bottom pressure recorder
- RBRvirtuoso D |wave measures waves
- RBRvirtuoso D |tide measures tides
The loggers can operate in up to 740m of water, make up to 30 million readings, and be deployed for over 5 years on one set of batteries at 1 minute sampling intervals. Some configurations are available in a deep water version that can operate in up to 10,000m of water (sensor dependent). The new logger series are customizable, with the ability to be fitted with one or two of the following sensors/functions*: temperature, tide, turbidity, ORP, depth (pressure), wave, fluorescence, PAR, conductivity, dissolved O2, pH (* Contact RBR for sensor availability).
RBR loggers facilitate the configuration of the optimum sampling regime for precise measurements. Available in a standard or extended body, they offer more power than previous models and are compatible with most RBR sensors. With their USB interface, datasets can quickly be exported to Matlab®, Ocean Data View®, Excel®, or text files to support and expedite data-processing with external algorithms.
