Digital Fuess Tide Gauge Model DFT-3

This tide gauge tells the up-and-down motion of float floated on the water surface to a pulley through a wire, and observes a tide level from the degree of rotation angle of a pulley. This equipment is adopted as a standard machine of a Japanese tide level meter.

Observation purpose

  • To tide level observation.
  • To coast disaster Tsunami, Storm Surge…

◆ There is no slide of a wire and exact tide level observation is possible.

◆ The data file of the large size can be collected by adopting the Compact Flash card.

◆ Contained data is recordable in ASCII form.

◆ At the time of a power failure, it can be backed up at a built-in nickel metal hydride battery.

◆ Observational data is outputted by RS-232C.
