Easy to UseDeploying Sentinel on the bottom of the ocean is just as easy as setting it up on land. Program Sentinel once in your office or lab. When you reach your deployment spot, just drop the unit into its tripod, and lower it to the sea bottom. An attachment point lets you tether a buoy for easy retrieval.
Nothing is too deepFor extra-deep deployments, Sentinel can be used with an acoustic release system. Tether a buoy to the unit’s top, attach the other end to the release and a disposable anchor, and drop it overboard – no tripod required. When the acoustic release is signaled to detach, Sentinel floats to the surface for easy retrieval.
DurableSentinel is designed to withstand years of exposure to even the harshest environments. The battery pack and omnidirectional Overhauser sensor are protected by a pressurized housing, made of high-strength fiberglass and coated with impact-absorbing polyurethane.
High PerformanceSentinel’s sensitivity is state-of-the-art (0.015 nT), far superior to most traditional base station magnetometers, and its power requirement is orders of magnitude lower. Couple this with its enormous one million reading nonvolatile memory and you have an instrument that is capable of collecting months of high-resolution total field magnetometer data on a single battery charge.
