General 
Product Name:ToughBoy Panchax
Product Description:Cut costs without compromising on data quality The ToughBoy Panchax oceanographic buoy solution offers you the lowest possible total cost of ownership on the market. This is achieved through a competitive purchase price together with low service and communications costs. The state-of-the-art, integrated ADCP and thoroughly-tested, advanced wave sensor provide high-precision wave and current data – the settings and transmission are adjusted according to your needs, keeping communications expenditures at a minimum as well. From harbour monitoring, subsea engineering pre-surveys to wave energy studies and any type of wave and current measurement surveys in between, the ToughBoy Panchax is the optimum choice. Additional sensors can be fitted as optional extras, creating an oceanographic buoy that perfectly matches the setup you’re looking for.
