SpaceLogger.S10 Data Loggers Taken To The Bottom of The Bay of Biscay

Spacelogger.S10 data loggers have been helping to map the conditions and life on the ocean floor in the Bay of Biscay. This fascinating application involved the SpaceLogger.S10 data loggers being towed at depths of 3000 metres whilst taking recordings of CTD (water conductivity, temperature and depth).

The SpaceLogger.S10 data loggers were part of the equipment on three 3000 metre depth rated ‘pods’ along with batteries, video processing equipment and control electronics.

The SpaceLogger.S10 is a versatile serial data logger for sampling RS232 data from up to two devices. Data is stored on a removable memory card, enabling remote data logging without the need for direct connection to a PC. After logging, the memory card can be simply inserted in a card reader, to view and analyse the data on a PC; no special software is required. This ability to log remotely made it the ideal choice for this application.

Marcus Shirley of Mr Rov, a member of the research team stated. “The loggers worked great and allowed us to reliably record accurate data which we were able to easily import into our scientific modelling software. The time stamping feature allowed us to sync up all the data with the logged data from the ship’s GPS and vehicle USBL position transponder, creating a very comprehensive data set. Many thanks for all your help. The SpaceLogger.S10 data loggers were great and 100% reliable, which is very important when you’re on a ship far from land!”

Some of the imagery back from the pods is remarkable and we are extremely proud to have helped capture important data for the team. We await a call from NASA to put SapceLoggers in space..
