The new HydroCAT-EP V2 includes some useful changes. Current owners of the HydroCAT-EP V1 are eligible for a free or low cost upgrade, depending on your instrument’s purchase date.
Science and Technology
Watch our latest Sea-Bird University session, to learn how to use, maintain, and process data from our latest multiparameter instrument, the HydroCAT-EP.
Art Pederson, founder and former President of Sea-Bird Electronics, passed away on October 8th, 2021. Art leaves behind a legacy that changed the face of oceanography and acted as the bedrock on which Sea-Bird Scientific is formed. We spoke with Dr. Norge Larson, former President of Sea-Bird Scientific, about the early days of Sea-Bird, and how Art’s innovations lead to the company we are today.
We’ve built new safety features around the HydroCAT-EP V2’s pH sensor. Watch Greg teach you how to properly flush and store your pH sensors to get the most out of your gear.
The HydroCAT-EP V2 is the next generation of multiparameter instruments. It measures CTD data alongside dissolved oxygen, pH, fluorescence, and turbidity, all within a single self-contained package. Learn about the new changes to this product.
Our dissolved oxygen sensors, the SBE 43 and SBE 63, are calibrated with tools and methods we learned from calibrating our world-class temperature and conductivity sensors. Get a look behind the scenes in our calibration lab.
The SUNA V2 is an ultraviolet spectrometer designed to measure nitrate in-situ. At Sea-Bird, we use a temperature-controlled bath and various solutions to characterize and calibrate the sensor’s output. Learn how we prepare SUNA V2s for seawater and freshwater deployments.
ISFET pH sensors, like the SeaFET V2 and SeapHOx V2, receive a factory calibration, and don’t require regular field maintenance. Learn how we’ve adapted our calibration facility to account for conditions these instruments meet in the wild.
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.
Precision engineering is meaningless without proper calibration. Learn why calibration is an important aspect of Sea-Bird Scientific sensors.
