Moored Conductivity, Temperature, (optional) Pressure, and Optical Dissolved Oxygen measurements, at user-programmable intervals. RS-232, RS-485, or dual RS-232 and SDI-12 interface, internal memory, and internal battery pack.
The SBE 37-SMP-ODO pumped MicroCAT is a high-accuracy conductivity and temperature (pressure optional) recorder with Serial interface (RS-232 or RS-485), internal batteries, Memory, integral Pump, and Optical Dissolved Oxygen. The MicroCAT is designed for moorings or other long-duration, fixed-site deployments.
Data is recorded in memory and can be output in real-time. Measured data and derived variables (salinity, sound velocity, specific conductivity) are output in engineering units.
Memory capacity exceeds 380,000 samples. Battery endurance varies, depending on sampling scheme and deployment temperature and pressure. Sampling every 15 minutes (10 °C, 500 dbar), the MicroCAT can be deployed for almost 9 months (25,000 samples).
