Compact and durable
The robust time depth recorder Starmon TD is designed to withstand harsh conditions and long-term deployment subsea or in aquatic environments. It is durable with its robust and non-corrosive titanium housing, 197mm x 40mm in dimensions. A calibration certificate is delivered with each instrument.
The Starmon TD is applicable for a wide array of research:
- Oceanography and aquatic research - long term stationary monitoring or surveying
- Fisheries research – attach the TDR to fishing gear, both for scientific and commercial use
- Data collection on underwater vehicles, AUV, ROV, subsea cables and more
- Geothermal wells or boreholes
Fast and accurate
The temperature sensor has a fast response of 2 seconds and the depth sensor has immediate response. Depth accuracy is +/-0.3% of full range and temperature accuracy is +/-0.025°C. Sampling intervals are user programmable and can be set down to 20 times per second.
Long life replaceable battery and large memory
The replaceable battery typically has a long life of over 10 years. Actual lifetime depends on sampling interval used and frequency of use. Memory size is 8.4 million recordings per sensor, total of 16.8 million recordings. Battery is replaceable.
Easy to attach to gear
For flexible mounting, Starmon TD has an attachment hole and two slots for strapping to moorings, nets or deployment lines.
