RBR In Australia

RBR develops and markets submersible data loggers, recorders, sondes, controllers and sensors for water quality measurement. All RBR data loggers share the same configuration and analysis software, Ruskin, which provides consistency and simplicity across all phases of data collection. USB interfacing is available as standard across the entire RBR range, giving true USB speeds (up to 12x faster than RS-232) and simplifying use through compatibility with commonly available cables. With fully customizable configurations supporting up to 13 channels, RBR instruments allow full characterization of the water column in oceanic, freshwater, cryospheric, estuarine and coastal environments.
