Chelsea case study: TriLux provides reliable, long-term algae measurements for Undersee’s FerryBox

As water quality monitoring becomes increasingly important, Undersee (developers of the first Portuguese ‘FerryBox’ system) have turned to the latest technology to provide accurate and reliable data for long-term deployments. Undersee have been using Chelsea’s TriLux sensor for continuous water quality measurements in their new ferrybox system.

Read our latest case study to find out what Undersee thought of the TriLux sensor performance.

Chelsea’s TriLux sensor provides three crucial algae parameters in a single cost-effective device. The unique measurement principle allows users to determine the contribution of green and blue-green algae to total chlorophyll fluorescence, whilst simultaneously measuring turbidity. This reduces the need for multiple sensors, saving on power and cost, and increasing deployment duration. An extended 2-year calibration interval reduces downtime and the cost of ownership. The titanium housing results in a robust sensor that is suitable for long-term deployments.

The simple data protocol and compact design of TriLux makes it easy to integrate into third-party systems such as Undersee’s flagship Ferrybox product, a small and light flow-through device designed for easy water quality monitoring.
