Stand OceanTools is an independently owned, world leading subsea engineering company specializing in the de-sign and manufacture of subsea equipment. At OB ?13 you will see: Subsea Leak Detec- tion, Subsea Cement Returns Con Þ rma-tion, Survey Frames, Fibre Optic Gyros, Subsea Displays, High Precision Altimeters, Pan & Tilts, Video Overlays, Underwater Switches, Subsea Engineering Solutions.Stand SubChemSubChem Systems recently delivered two ChemFIN Nutrient Analyzers to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and Environment Canada. The ChemFIN, a single-channel submers- ible nutrient analyzer, is SubChem?s newest product for monitoring nitrate, nitrite, phosphate, silicate or ammonia. The single-channel ChemFIN joins SubChem?s successful multi-channel product: the Autonomous Pro Þ ling Nutri- ent Analyzer (APNA). Both submersible analyzers can provide long-term, continu- ous or intermittent, real-time measure- ments of nutrients from Þ xed or mobile platforms. A new accessory is available, for real-time monitoring of Total Organic Phosphorous (TOP) and/or Total Organic Nitrogen (TON), with the ChemFIN and APNA Nutrient Analyzers. SubCtech SubCtech is an inter- national operating company based in Kiel, Germany. As a devel- oper of marine tech- nology and underwater power supplies the company presents a product family of pCO2 analyzer and complete mobile and stationary environmental/ water quality monitoring systems. This family was re- cently completed by a pCO2 Lab analyzer which will be launched at OB?2013. Stand G10 Teledyne TSS Visitors to the Teledyne TSS stand at Ocean Business will have their Þ rst op- portunity to see the company?s new gyro compass changeover system that protects navigation equipment against the danger of a sudden loss of heading input. The new system will provide valuable protec- tion for dynamically positioned (DP) ves- sels that can experience a dangerous loss of heading if one or more of their main navigation gyrocompasses should fail. This year it will be accompanied by the Þ rst production version of the new SDC-10 surface display computer which has been designed to support all Teledyne TSS tracking systems. Teledyne TSS expertise in motion sensor technology will also at- tract interest with its successful DMS-500 range of motion sensors. These instru- ments typify the company?s expertise in this demanding aspect of technology. Visitors to Ocean Business will be able to inspect the DMS-525 model in this range which measures heave, roll and pitch. Stand S1 Valeport Valeport is announces the launch of the VRS20 Radar Level Sensor. Us- ing non-contact technology, the VRS20 can be installed easily to measure water level in a wide variety of applications. The VRS20 uses 25GHz pulsed k-band radar to measure water level to an accuracy of ±10mm (this is unaffected by changes in water density or atmospheric condition). It has been designed to work seamlessly with Valeport?s TideMaster tide logger or can operate as a standalone device with optional integrated GPRS telemetry. Alter- natively it can interface with a third party data logger. Data collection is a simple process for the VRS20, with RS232, RS485 and SDI 12 communication as standard. With a wide range 9 ? 28v DC power supply, the device is also versatile. Stand Marine Technology Reporter 75MTR #2 (66-80).indd 75MTR #2 (66-80).indd 753/6/2013 3:06:36 PM3/6/2013 3:06:36 PM
