WFS Technologies (WFS), NuStar Technologies and Precision are pleased to announce an agreement to offer a subsea wireless datalogging system to support flow metering for JAMSTEC, the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology.
The project being led by NuStar Technologies involves cultivation and extraction of rare earth minerals in Japanese waters at sea depths between 1600m and 3000m. WFS will supply a Seatooth®S100 datalogger to be used to log mineral rate data from a Hoffer flowmeter.
Seatooth®S100 is a compact, low-power, wireless modem, data logger, multiplexer and controller. It supports a variety of underwater applications, providing a robust wireless communication link up to 15ft in the most challenging conditions. Seatooth®S100 is equipped with standard data communication interfaces, making it well-suited to underwater sensor, diver and vehicle applications. It can be deployed swiftly on temporary or permanent installations to support a range of offshore survey applications.
