Released new website. The new site has all the content of the old site. Navigation is similar to the old site, to ease the transition for current customers. The biggest functional change is the creation of tabbed product pages, with all the information relating to a product in one place (all tabs do not appear for all products):

  • Features — the ‘front side’ of the datasheet, with text and photos describing the product
  • Specifications — product specifications and dimensional drawings
  • Gallery — photos with callouts, illustrating various product features
  • Documents — links to product brochure, manual(s), reference sheet(s), applicable software manuals, and applicable application notes in .pdf form for easy downloading and printing
  • Software — descriptions of applicable software, along with the software files for downloading
  • FAQ — FAQs applicable to that product (there is still a general FAQ page that lists all FAQs, just like on the old site)
  • Configuration — part numbers, descriptions, and graphics to assist in ordering the appropriate features
  • Accessories — information on cables, mount kits, and other spare parts
  • Compare — comparison of the instrument to other instruments in the same category (for example, a comparison of all profiling instruments)

If you encounter bugs or navigation that you find difficult or non-intuitive, please send an email to dbresko@seabird.com with the details (the page URL, what you saw, what you were trying to do, what browser you are using) so we can review and fix any problems.
