Datawell is a company which develops oceanographical measuring instruments. Our products have proven to excellently withstand the harsh marine environment.
Riding the waves for over 60 years!
Specializing in the marine environment, Datawell developed the basic principles of the gravity stabilized long period motion sensors. That, in combination with designs for very low power electronics, resulted in the Waverider (1968), the Wavec buoy (1983) and Directional Waverider buoy (1988).
The CAT4 is a meteorological air temperature sensor integrated in the HF-antenna of the Directional Waverider. It consists of four individual sensors that have different radiative properties and will therefore measure different temperatures. The actual air temperature is derived from these different temperatures. External influences that might affect the measurements, such as evaporative cooling, are detected for validation.
The global gold standard in directional wave measurement
Measure environmental parameters with your Waverider
Dedicated mooring packages are available depending on buoy type

Your data can be received by one of our own receivers
Tools for data acquisition, post-processing and presentation
The fact that during this period its wave height measuring buoys have been the world standard is proof of the continuous dedication of the company and its employees to the quality and technology of the product. This dedication ensures further innovations: an autonomous mini-meteo-buoy, a low-budget GPS based wave height measuring buoy, a low-frequency extension of the measurement, Datawell mooring of navigation aid buoys, etc. The need for well-engineered measuring equipment surviving in a marine environment has given Datawell a beautiful history and a bright future.
