Video: Troubleshooting Analog Sensors

Video: Troubleshooting Analog Sensors

Integrating analog sensors is relatively painless, at least compared to the more finicky RS-232 sensors. But what happens when you've diligently followed the instructions yet fail to receiving data from your sensor? Watch our troubleshooting video to learn our methods...

RS-232 Sensor Integration Guide

RS-232 Sensor Integration Guide

Unlike analog auxiliary sensors, instruments that output serial RS-232 data are more challenging to integrate with Sea-Bird Scientific CTDs. Despite RS-232 being a standard communication protocol, most instruments have a unique data output format and command set. As...

Q&A: Temperature Mismatch

Q&A: Temperature Mismatch

Although they should match perfectly, the two sensors rarely reported the same temperature value throughout their deployment. Furthermore, the 16plusV2 appeared to stop logging, although the batteries still had life upon recovery. Can you identify the problem?

Q&A: Diagnosing Salinity Spikes

Q&A: Diagnosing Salinity Spikes The figure above shows a time series of salinity from a moored CTD. For most of the deployment, salinity showed frequent downward spikes, dropping from an expected range of 18-26 psu to near zero. Can you determine the cause?...
