Buoy Vertical Profiling System


The 6952 Buoy Vertical Profiling System offers user-programmable sample intervals, redundant error recovery logic that detects unexpected activity and recovers automatically, and is compatible with all YSI EXO or 6-Series sondes equipped with depth.  The profiler systems provide reliable, fully-automated data collection.  The profiling systems also come with rugged, non-corrosive mechanical winch and drive mechanism, Profile Wizard software for easy set-up and deployment, Profile data analysis and export software, user selectable sample intervals, optional meteorological package, and several wireless data transmission options.  

Buoy Based Configurations Feature:

  • Submersible, water-tight enclosure for control electronics
  • Optional depth sounder which automatically compensates for varying water levels from tides, reservoir levels, etc.
  • Uses top and bottom as reference points for software controlled positioning
  • Profiles up and down and parks at any depth
  • Redundant error recovery logic detects unexpected activity and recovers automatically

If you're interested in additional profiling systems we also offer fixed profilers and pontoon profilers

Applications Include:

  • Drinking Water Reservoirs: water quality, homeland security
  • Research: upwelling events, open water
  • General Monitoring: lakes, rivers, estuaries, bays
