Though the suspension of the stabilized platform is fragile, the construction as a whole has proven to be very reliable. This reliability is accomplished by making the platform and the accelerometer neutrally buoyant in the sensor fluid. Many buoys have survived direct ship collisions, even propeller hits, without the sensor being damaged. ? measures wave height for wave periods of 1.6 to 30 seconds, accuracy 0.5 % of measured value ? 0.7 m or 0.9 m diameter spherical hull of AISI 316 ? low power: operational for 14 - 28 months, depending on the configuration and hull diam. ?
