RBR Ltd. is pleased to announce the commercial release of the new RBRquartz3 Q|plus pressure logger to meet the demands for high-accuracy, long-term measurements of sea level, tidal, and wave dynamics by coastal oceanographers worldwide. At the heart of the RBRquartz3 Q|plus is an integrated Paroscientific Digiquartz® pressure sensor for best-in-class initial accuracy, resolution, and low-drift performance.
Intended for long-term autonomous or realtime observations, the RBRquartz3 Q|plus has high stability and can resolve water level changes as small as 100ppb at 16Hz sampling rate (for example, at 50m depth that would be a resolution of ±0.005mm). The RBRquartz3 Q|plus also comes standard with a ±0.002°C high-accuracy temperature sensor and may be configured with an optional 3-axis tilt sensor. In combination with RBR’s Ruskin software, the end-user has the availability of flexible measurement schedules, burst sampling, and configurable integration times to allow for a broad range of applications in coastal dynamics.
Greg Johnson, President of RBR, commented, “The RBRquartz3 Q|plus addresses the demands of scientists and engineers who require long-term quartz pressure sensor measurements in a package where ease-of-use is prioritised. We are happy to bring this instrument to the market and fill the gap that is present.”
