The TRIAXYS™ Mini Directional Wave Buoy is an easy to deploy, rugged and economical instrument for the measurement of directional waves. The stainless steel hull has a high strength-to-weight ratio and is powdercoated for additional corrosion resistance. The buoy is relatively small (0.6 m diameter) and lightweight (60 kg) allowing for easy deployment by two people from almost any vessel. The TRIAXYS™ Mini’s standard power supply, Lithium Thionyl Chloride battery packs, allows up to 60 days of data transmission. The versatility of the Mini allows longer-term deployments of up to six months to be achieved by adding additional battery packs. The heart of the TRIAXYS™ Mini Wave Buoy was developed from the proven AXYS WatchMan™ DCP, which integrates sensor systems and provides onboard data processing, data logging, telemetry and diagnostic/set-up routines. The TRIAXYS™ sensor and telemetry module contains the telemetry system (e.g., VHF transmitter), data logging system, processing unit and the sensor unit, which is comprised of 3 accelerometers, 3 rate gyros and a Fluxgate compass. The processing unit samples and analyses the data and controls all the TRIAXYS™ Mini’s systems.
