Automatic Profiling Buoy APB505

The APB505 is originally designed for monitoring water quality in fish farming industry. However, it is as well suited for any application that need automatic profiling of data. The buoy contains a control unit, CU801B, an Embedded Web Server, a GSM/GPRS/EDGE router, a winch, a short range radio for communication with sensor unit, and NiMH battery back-up. In fish farm application, it is normally powered from external supply, but can also be equipped with solar cells. The control unit can be remotely programmed to desired profiling frequency and depth. In between profiles, the sensor unit rest inside the buoy above water level. In this position the sensor unit can be flushed with fresh water (optional feature). The measured data is transmitted to the control unit, and the Embedded Web Server produce a web page reachable on the internet at the address: (station to be given by the user) The user will provide a SIM- card, and when buoy is powered up, the APB505 configure itself. Besides programming and data collection, utility data are also available, e.g. diagnostic info for the buoy and sensor unit.
