Adjustable Housing for DSTs with tilt and/or compass sensors
When measuring tilt and compass directions with the DST's it is important that the loggers do not roll on the object being studied. When attached to gear we recomend using Adjustable Housing for DST tilt, DST pitch & roll and DST magnetic. The DST logger is inserted into the housing and rolled until the marking on logger matches with the marking on the housing. Stainless steel clamps inside the housing are used to fasten the logger in an approximate central position. The shape of the housing is designed to be fastened/bolted/screwed to underwater gear/equipment or strapped to a cable. The weight of the housing is 125 g in air. Dimensions are 7 cm x 4.7 cm x 4 cm. housing for tilt and/or compass sensors
