Cost-optimised miniature sensors for online monitoring
DHI Sense is a new series of cost-optimised, mini-sensors for monitoring in water environments. It was developed in cooperation between DHI Denmark and DHI Singapore.
DHI Sense is a new series of cost-optimised, mini-sensors for monitoring in water environments. It was developed in cooperation between DHI Denmark and DHI Singapore. The system design is aimed at optimising the value of measurement campaigns by increasing the number of sensors, while maintaining the overall cost of the operation.
Traditionally, very expensive, high-end scientific sensors have been used for marine monitoring. This has limited the number of stations that could be deployed during a measurement campaign. With DHI Sense, it is possible to deploy a network of numerous sensors at a comparable cost, without compromising the data quality.
DHI Sense provides a new method for measurements where sensors are connected in a Master/Slave configuration. This is capable of controlling, processing and transmitting of online data from a large variety of sensors.
Data is by default stored locally on a Secure Digital Card. When configured for online operation, data – or a subset of data – is transferred to our Data Integration Management System (DIMS.CORE).
