Moored Conductivity, Temperature, and (optional) Pressure 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 pumped MicroCAT is a high-accuracy conductivity and temperature (pressure optional) recorder with Serial interface (RS-232 or RS-485), internal batteries, Memory, and integral Pump. 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) are output in engineering units.
Memory capacity exceeds 530,000 samples. Battery endurance varies, depending on sampling scheme. Sampling every 2-1/2 minutes, the MicroCAT can be deployed for 2 years (425,000 samples).
