Monitoring Buoy Designed for Coastal and Blue Water Applications

  • Overview

    The YSI EMM2.0 is one of the most versatile and reliable buoy solutions on the market. These buoys have been deployed with wet-chemistry nutrient and metal analyzers, current meters, water quality monitors, GPS, atmospheric sensors, wave sensors, hydrocarbon sensors, and more. 

    The stable platform can be easily customized to maximize instrumentation on a single monitoring platform. Adding satellite, radio, or cellular telemetry provides data to a custom visual display, making it easy for researchers and operators alike to receive critical data on a daily basis.

    Features Include:

    • YSI manufactures buoy, instruments, and loggers for a complete, integrated solution
    • Customizable with third-party sensors
    • Uniform color doesn't require regular maintenance
    • Through-hull penetration for monitoring equipment makes routine servicing simple, fast, and secure
    • Standard configurations available with short lead time
    • Virtually indestructible buoy hull survives impact, ice, and punctures

    Options & Accessories:

    There are many options when "building" a monitoring buoy.

    • Meteorological Package - Additional parameters to complement your monitoring program
    • Wireless Data Transmission - Several options to wirelessly transmit data are available, ask us which suits your application best
    • Satellite Communications - Either Iridium or GOES telemetry can be fitted on this system
    • Current Profiling - Can be combined with a Current Profiler, either bottom mounted or downward looking
    • Wave Sensor - The buoy is compatible with an Aanderaa MOTUS Wave Sensor.  Intended for commercial as well as research use, the MOTUS sensor processes wave data and is configurable to present parameters and wave spectrum directly.
