Lausanne, Switzerland, 7.12.2016 Hydromea SA today announced the launch of two new products, the LUMA 250LP optical modem and the Mini-FT7 fast, high-resolution temperature sensor.

The LUMA 250LP is a very compact (only 100 x 50 x 40mm) optical modem for fast underwater communication, up to 250kbit/sec, down to 6000m depth. Its very low stand-by power consumption makes it particularly well suited for long-term deployments along with battery-powered instruments.

The Mini-FT7 combines the FP07 sensor, the industry-standard for fast temperature measurements, with a high resolution signal converter and logger into a powerful package.

The compact size of the Mini-FT7 (25 x 200mm) allows for easy integration into existing multi-parameter sondes and even very small AUVs, ROVs and gliders. The high data rates of fast temperature sensors (up to 400Hz) often make integration into existing logging systems difficult. The Mini-FT7 however comes with its own built-in logger so that you won’t miss a single sample. In addition, a built-in 9-axis IMU (3 axis linear accelerometer + 3 axis gyro + 3 axis magnetometer) can help removing the effect of the sensor’s own motion from the signal.

Both products demonstrate Hydromea’s ability to miniaturize technology which is critical for the deployment of novel robotic platforms and underwater-IoT integration.
