Metrology system


Contact us

FerryBox is an autonomous, low maintenance metrology system which has been developed especially for permanent deployment on ships, metrology platforms and river measurement points for long -term in situ monitoring of rivers, estuaries, coastal zones and open sea.

How it works

Due to its special architecture, the system is able to link a multitude of sensors and automatic analysis devices and even perform measurements in difficult media (such as sea water or bubbling water etc.). The modular flow-through system combines high flexibility in the choice of sensor types and methods with a fully integrated anti-fouling concept and the possibility for automatic and remote controlled operation based on the "LabView" software technology.


  • Requires little space because of the compact form
  • Easy to maintain because of the open design and the anti-fouling concept
  • Flexible because of the by-passes and the use of standard components
  • Pressure resistant
  • This type of system can be used below the waterline
  • Remote control is possible
