Starmon Tilt, rechargeable
Acceleration, tilt (3-D), temperature and depth logger
Durable, long life subsea acceleration and tilt data logger with rechargeable battery. Fast sampling and response.
For monitoring behaviour, movements and orientation of subsea gear, cables and underwater vehicles. Suitable for short-term fast sampling or long-term research on a single charge.
- Fast sampling and response
- Robust, durable and accurate
- Long lasting rechargeable battery
- Easy to attach to gear
- Shallow to deep ocean
Fast Sampling and Response
Starmon Tilt can record tilt-acceleration and depth in burst mode at up to 100 measurements per second (100 Hz) and for all sensors at up to 20 measurements per second (20 Hz). Different sampling intervals can be set up within the research period. The temperature sensor has a fast response of 2 seconds.
The Starmon Tilt is applicable for both short and long-term research:
- Movements and orientation of fishing gear like trawls and dredges during surveys
- Pitch and roll of underwater robots and vehicles (AUV, ROV)
- Inclination monitoring of submersible acoustic receivers and mooring lines due to changes in wind and waves
- Analysing shape of geothermal wells or boreholes
- Vibration of subsea cables, recording bursts of acceleration data
Long Lasting Rechargeable Battery
Depending on interval setup, the rechargeable battery can last several years on a single charge. At an interval of 1 min it can last more than 5 years on a single charge. At 1 sec. interval a single charge lasts at least one month. The logger can be recharged 500 times before having to replace the battery. The software has an energy and memory calculator.
Easy to Attach to Gear
Starmon Tilt has an attachment hole through the end cap and two slots for strapping or fastening to subsea gear. For more flexible mounting, holder brackets fitting the slots with one or double plates are ideal for attaching on flat surface and give extra protection.
Viewing Measurements in Real-Time
The software offers a real-time view of measurements while the logger is connected to a computer. This feature is especially helpful to learn about the functionality of the three axis acceleration/tilt sensors when placed at different angles. When doing an online test the measurements can be viewed in real-time in a graph and table.
Shallow to Deep Ocean
The self-contained logger has a robust titanium housing that tolerates extreme conditions. Customers can choose from a range of depth sensor calibrations. Available depth ranges are: 0-50m, 100m, 200m, 500m, 1000m, 2000m, 4000m or 4500m.
Full Ocean Depth Housing Available
A customized housing is available for all ocean depth. This ultra high-pressure resistant titanium housing is without a pressure sensor, therefore only equipped with tilt-acceleration and temperature sensors.
