Introducing an enhanced DST tilt - Greatly increased sampling frequency and memory size

Star-Oddi introduces a new and improved version of the DST tilt. The user now has the option of performing burst measurements (5 recordings per second) for tilt & acceleration. The memory size has also been increased by 50%, up to 43,598 measurements per parameter.

The DST tilt measures tilt in three directions, depth (pressure) and temperature. The DST tilt data logger has been on the market since 2009 and has been well received by scientists worldwide who are mainly doing studies on fishing gear, underwater equipment and marine animals, for orientation studies.

The user can view the accelerationed data (m/s2) in the application software SeaStar, in addition to tilt angle and other measured data (depth and temperature). To get information on velocity it's possible to use the PatternFinder analysis software.

A special adjustable housing made by Star-Oddi secures the logger by immobalizing and protecting it against impact. The shape of the housing is designed so that it can be bolted to a flat surface or strapped on a cable. Housing material is robust polyethelyne plastic.

For more information please see the DST tilt product site.
