Wave Buoy 'Wave Elf'

Wave Buoy (STD) is a kind of small buoy measuring system of monitoring. It is mainly used in offshore fixed-point observation, for the sea wave height, period, direction and temperature. These measured data can be used for Environmental monitoring stations to count estimation of the wave power spectrum, direction spectrum, etc. It can be used alone or as the basic equipment of coastal or platform automatic monitoring systems.

Unique Algorithms

The buoy is equipped with a wave sensor, which contains an ARM core high-efficiency processor and a patented optimisation algorithm cycle. The professional version can also support wave spectrum output.

High battery life

Alkaline battery packs or lithium battery packs can be selected, and the working time varies from 1 month to 6 months. In addition, the product can also be installed with solar panels for better battery life.


Compared with similar products, Wave Buoy (Mini) has a lower price.
