  • Pressure sensor

    Hi
    Is there any depth controller as a pressure sensor with data logging application installed in the sea glide?

    If the pressure sensor is installed, can anyone let me what type of pressure sensor is installed in this glider?
    Best regards

    Hi Barkoo - welcome to the SeaGlide forum!
    The SeaGlide kit does not come with a pressure sensor. However, we have added pressure sensors to them in different ways. We have used them for either control feedback or data logging (not typically for both simultaneously, but there's no reason you couldn't). For depth control, we run the pressure sensor straight to the SeaGlide PCB, where there is space for the capacitor and resistor necessary for noise reduction. For data logging, we have the sensor internals self-contained in a waterproof matchbox with its own microprocessor (see www.seaglide.net/sensors)

    The pressure sensor we have been using is the NXP transducer MPXHZ6400AC6T1, which gets soldered onto the a SOIC-8 breakout. Instructions for assembling and wiring the sensor can also be found at www.seaglide.net/sensors.

    Good luck!

      Hey Is it possible to use ncd's wireless pressure sensor with sea glide to work it on higher ranges ? basically these are for industrial purpose but by any means it will be helpful while using it in under water system ?
      battery power iot wireless temperature barometric pressure sensor ultra low power high accuracy low cost industrial transmitter for data logging notification,HVAC,Medical Applications,Medicine Storage units. trigger relays and push notification based on remote pressure. Works With Raspberry Pi, PC,Linux,Cloud,AWS,Azure

        Underwater communication is very challenging and something like this, even with its 2 mile advertised range on land, would not work well underwater. You are welcome to try it out and report back. Perhaps this open source community may learn something from your curiosity.

        Thank you
