The Sea-Bird SBE37 IMP MicroCAT is a pumped self-logging high-accuracy conductivity, temperature and pressure recorder. It has an inductive modem that communicates with the surface telemetry buoy through half-duplex DPSK (differential phase shift keyed) telemetry.

Every 15 minutes the pump draws a sample of water into the instrument to measure conductivity and temperature. The sample cell contains an anti-biofouling agent that minimises drift in the conductivity by eliminating fouling of the conductivity cell.

For further information on Inductive MicroCATs refer to Sea-Bird Electronics.
