Overview

Aanderaa Tide Sensors 5217/5217R are compact fully integrated sensors for measuring the tide conditions. The sensor is designed to be mounted on the Aanderaa multiparameter SeaGuard® Platform or via cable connected to SmartGuard datalogger. The standard version has AiCaP CANbus and RS-232 output. R-version has RS-422 output for longer cable length.    

Product Features
  • Smart Sensor technology Plug and Play
  • Sensor Calibration coefficients are stored in the sensor
  • Minimal and simple maintenance needs
  • Low current drain
  • Power: 5 to 14VDC, 50mA max
  • Output formats: AiCaP CANbus, RS-232/RS-422,
  • Short update interval: 1 seconds to 255 minutes
  • 2Hz and 4Hz sampling frequency
  • Outputs: Pressure, Temperature, Tide pressure, Tide Level
  • Real-time XML output

5217/5217R:

  • Measurement range: 400kPa, 1000kPa, 4000kPa,10MPa, 20MPa,40MPa, 60MPa
  • Max operating depth: 30m, 90m, 390m, 1000m, 2000m, 4000m, 6000m

4445/4446/4447:

  • Vented - compensate for air pressure
  • Measurement range: 50kPa, 100kPa, 200kPa
  • Max operating depth: 5m, 10m, 20m

The Aanderaa Tide Sensor is also available in a vented version (4445, 4446, 4447). This means that the sensor is automatically compensated for air pressure. This is done by use of a compensating unit placed in air and an air-pipe in the cable between the sensor and compensating unit.

The sensor application areas are in fixed installations, either deployed in a seabed installation in shallow waters, or mounted onto a fixed structure in the upper water column. Typical applications for the sensor are measurements of tide in ports and harbors, marine operations, weather forecast, and climate studies.
