The DWR-G Unit has been re-introduced in a new stainless steel housing. The DWR-G Unit included a RS232 interface and can be installed on your own buoy or platform in order to measure its movement.

The serial port outputs HXV-vectors including wave spectrum and system file, just like the serial output of the RX-C receiver and Wave Unit.

Many Waveriders we supplied have been equipped with a Superstar GPS receiver. Recently it has come to our attention that the Superstar generates a faulty date in the logger files. The problem can be explained by an unexpected “GPS week rollover”. The internal date obtained from the GPS satellite system is incorrect. Typically the date is set to the year 2096. To convert the incorrect data we are currently developing a software tool. The only solution to this problem however is to replace the Superstar GPS receiver. The Superstar position module must be replaced with the µBlox GPS receiver (DWR-MKIII and WR-SG). The µBlox GPS receiver was introduced in the beginning of 2012.
