OceanPack CUBE

We are happy to announce the release of the latest evolution of our OceanPack-family. In cooperation with our partners and clients, we evolved our technology but kept the basic concept of a robust, compact and user-friendly instrument, made for scientific environmental observations.

For the OceanPack CUBE we combined the best of the OceanPack Mobile and the OceanPack Classic. As a result, the instrument is more robust, lighter, very compact and uses the 19” format, which is established as an industrial standard. Versatility, easy handling and expandability are also key features of the CUBE.

OceanPack™ CUBE
The OceanPack™ 19” CUBE is a mobile “Underway” or “FerryBox” autonomous measuring system. The OceanPack™ CUBE includes everything to run unattended and measure water parameters: power supply, data logger, water system and space to include optional sensors.
The CUBE system is based on the OceanPack classic rack, but is a mobile, lighter and smaller version. Even though the system is compact, additional sensor can be integrated.
Robust against sediments or bio-fouling, just clean with tap water. Optionally, the automatic cleaning can be connected as an external additional device. Quick-connect water tube connections without the need to use tools. Efficient de-airing with our Debubbler mBubbler®. Space to install additional sensors into the Debubbler to measure true water values in one water tank.

OceanPack™ CUBE Automatic self-cleaning
Optional external module for OceanPack™ CUBE to clean the water supply automatically. Two motor-ball valves are used to run the water in a circle. Acid is used to remove fouling very efficiently. If tap water is available, another phase of cleaning with tap water is included.
The cleaning can be fully configured to your needs and is suitable for mostly any sensors such as pH, pCO2 etc. Not harmful for the environment. Fully installed and pre-programmed.
