Fiona, I am using a system I designed to suspend my CTD sensor one foot above the bottom of a pond by attaching the sensor to a float which is anchored to a concrete block (see attached photo).
If you have a mending plate on the back of your logger box you can use a long hose clamp to attach it to the dock.
I’m planning a new modbus wingboard and posted about it here, which also has some history.
I’m planning an open source review of the schematic next week sometime after July 5th

We mention the caution about battery polarity in multiple places on this website, and also in the EnviroDIY Monitoring Station Manual, and specifically in Section 6.1 (https://www.envirodiy.org/knowledge-base/building-an-envirodiy-monitoring-station/). I’m a…[Read more]

Some LiPo batteries have the JST connector reversed and that may be your problem. Check the battery with a VOM to make sure the red wire is + and black is –

I’m new to the Mayfly Data Logger boards although I have used a couple of Arduino Unos. Today, I was set-up a water temperature sensor for a project me and my team have coming up. I was able to get the senor up and running but as I was put in the finishing touches(adding the solar panel and the lipo battery), I could smell the board…[Read more]
We’ve installed several stations in tidal areas by attaching the sensor to a custom apparatus mounted to docks or piers. What kind of sensors are you planning to install?
