Optical Property Measurement

HydroScat-2Inherent Optical Properties (IOPs) describe water and the substances in it. IOPs include backscattering, absorption, fluorescence, and turbidity.

a-Sphere  

In-Situ Spectrophotometer; Full-spectrum (360 - 750 nm), high-resolution (1500 simultaneous wavelengths) absorption measurements, with no scattering correction and no moving parts.

HydroScat
Family

Measure backscattering at multiple wavelengths, and fluorescence;

HydroScat-2: 2 backscattering, plus chlorophyll fluorescence

HydroScat-2 Abyss: Rated to 4 km, backscattering at 2 wavelengths, plus chlorophyll fluorescence

HydroScat-4: 4 channels of backscattering and/or fluorescence.

HydroScat-6P: 6  backscattering, plus chlorophyll and CDOM fluorescence, now with integrated deployment frame

Gamma
Family

Spectral transmissometers, measure attenuation at 2, 4 or 8 wavelengths and depths of 500 or 6000 meters.

Light Measurement

HydroRad-4HOBI Labs offers a complete line of instruments and accessories for hyperspectral measurement of Radiance and Irradiance, above and below the ocean surface.

HydroRad

Family of multi-channel hyperspectral radiometer systems.  Measure spectra on 1 to 4 separate collectors, simultaneously.  Versatile configuration options to fit any application.

WaLRUS II

Hyperspectral radiometer buoy for multiple simultaneous measurements above and below the surface

SpectraDAS

System for powering and logging data from spectrometers in the field

PURLS 

Programmable Universal Radiometer Light Source.  Sophisticated programmable source for radiometric monitoring

SLS-1

Stable light source for monitoring the calibrations of radiometric instruments

Fiber Optic
Light
Collectors

Compact fiber optic heads that collect radiance or irradiance signals for HydroRads, or any other  instrument with fiber optic input.

Data Handling & System Integration

MiniDASToday's research calls for sophisticated systems coordinating many sensors under challenging conditions.  HOBI's data and integration tools bring these systems to life.

HydroDAS

 

Highly configurable data integration, logging, system control, and power distribution for large profiling or moored systems.  All supported with powerful, yet easy, programmability

 

MiniDAS

 

The same sophisticated capabilities as HydroDAS, for smaller systems

SpectraDAS

System for powering and logging data from spectrometers in the field

Accessories

HydroShutter-HR
HydroShutter-HS

Anti-fouling protection?also rotary actuators for other applications

HydroBatt

High-output rechargeable battery

Deployment
Cages

Frames to ease mounting and protection of instruments

Cables
(electrical)

For profiling with single instruments, or interconnecting equipment

Cables
(fiber optic)

Armored fiber optic cables with SMA connectors and o-ring seals for submerged use.
