Autonomous TS-7400-V2 Arctic Buoy Use Case

Interesting Use Case #901

#901: Monitoring Ice.Studying Ice Formation and Melting Changes.

When Ice911 needed to design an autonomous station to deploy to the Arctic, near Barrow, AK, they came to Technologic Systems. Their requirements strongly focused on a fanless, low power, solar and battery powered solution capable of handling the frigid Arctic weather. The TS-7400-V2 met all of those demands and then some. Using USB sonar, light, and radiation sensors, the scientists were able to remotely gather the data via WiFi and cellular as well as store it on the microSD card.

Built for Extremes. Passed a ruthless HALT test with flying colors.

While the penguin weigh station represents a real world application, we were confident the TS-7400-V2 would excel in this environment based on previous HALT results. Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT) is a stress testing methodology used to determine product reliability and the operational parameters for a device or component.
