The DCP200 is a Data Collection Platform (DCP) designed specifically for stream stage, water quality, and rainfall applications. This system measures the sensors, processes the measurements, then transmits the data to a receiving station via the GOES system.


Benefits and Features

  • Transmission rates of 300 and 1200 bps

  • Up to 28 days of operation between GPS fixes

  • Transmitter certified as High Data Rate version 2 compliant

  • Makes SDI-12, single-ended analog, pulse, switch closure, and bridge measurements

  • Automatic GPS correction of clock and oscillator

  • Diagnostics and status information that can be sampled by the datalogger and transmitted as part of the data stream

  • Independent self-timed and random data buffers

Technical Description

The DCP200 consists of our CR295X datalogger, TX320 HDR GOES satellite transmitter, Yagi antenna, GPS antenna, ENC16/18 enclosure, antenna cables, power supply, and software. The TX320 transmitter supports data transmission rates of 300 and 1200 bps. Because clock accuracy is critically important for GOES satellite telemetry, the TX320 includes a robust, TCXO-based real-time clock and a GPS receiver.
