History of the SeaCAT

History of the SeaCAT

SeaCATs, the CTD family consisting of the 16plus V2 and 19plus V2, were first developed in late 1985 back when Sea-Bird had barely evolved past a garage operation. When a customer requested a moored CTD – the first that Sea-Bird had ever built, Sea-Bird's team...

CTDs as Data Loggers

CTDs as Data Loggers

The acronym “CTD” might unofficially represent more than just conductivity, temperature, and depth. Since most CTDs include one or more auxiliary sensors, a given CTD package might technically be called a “CTDpHDOFLNTUTr” (CTD + pH + dissolved oxygen + fluorescence +...

Video: Simulating an Inductive Mooring

Video: Simulating an Inductive Mooring

Conceptually, inductive moorings seem complex – communicating with 100 instruments through a single cable doesn’t exactly sound intuitive. But, in practice, the setup is surprisingly simple. Watch our latest video to see how easy it is to test and simulate an inductive modem mooring.

Moored CTD Troubleshooting Guide

Moored CTD Troubleshooting Guide

Deploying a moored CTD can be a game of trust. Nobody wants to return to their long-estranged CTD to find poor data quality. Of course, nobody wants to visit the middle of the ocean everyday either. Fortunately, we’ve created a basic troubleshooting guide for moored...

Flushing and Storing pH Sensors on the HydroCAT-EP V2

The HydroCAT-EP V2's new pH sensor design makes it safer and easier than ever to swap sensors in the field. A new flushing port ensures that corrosive seawater stays far away from the electronics, while a new mechanical design creates a snug fit to withstand the...

HydroCAT-EP V2 Overview

Introducing the HydroCAT-EP V2, Sea-Bird Scientific’s latest multiparameter instrument. We took the field-proven MicroCAT (SBE 37) and added a host of integrated sensors to the base CTD to provide users with a robust sampling platform in a compact, self-contained...
