Tilt Current Meter

Product Description:
The TCM-1 tilt current meter is ideal for measuring water velocity from inland to the edge of the continental shelf. The simple design and lower cost of the TCM-1 make it feasible to measure current in many locations simultaneously.
The core of the TCM-1 is the MAT-1 Data Logger. The MAT-1 data logger was designed for NOAA and is ideally suited as the “brains” of a tilt current meter.
The TCM-1 is field configurable for either low or high current range by simply adding or removing a calibrated ballast. Housed rugged PVC, with no external sensors, the TCM-1 is easy to deploy and recover. The built-in data logger includes a USB communication interface, a microSD flash memory card, and a long-life lithium battery.
The TCM-1 Tilt Current Meter measures current using the drag-tilt principle. The logger is buoyant and is anchored to the bottom via a short flexible tether. Moving water tilts the logger in the direction of flow. The TCM-1 contains a 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis magnetometer for measuring tilt and bearing. The resulting orientation data is converted to current by applying calibration coefficients.
Windows® software is used to configure the TCM-1 for deployment and to process data and saved as text file (.csv).

HOBO® U20 Series Data Logger – Titanium


The HOBO Water Level Titanium is recommended for saltwater deployment for recording water levels and temperatures in brackish wetlands and tidal areas.


  • Lightning protection – no long signal wires, and electronics are shielded in stainless steel housing (see the Water Level logger sensor location drawing)
  • HOBOware Pro software provides easy conversion to accurate water level reading, fully compensated for barometric pressure (see demo) temperature, and water density.
  • Multiple-rate sampling (see demo) allows faster sampling at critical times such as when pumping starts or stops.
  • Available in 4 depth ranges
  • Ideal for use in wells, streams, lakes, wetlands and tidal areas
  • No-vent-tube design for easy reliable deployment
  • Durable ceramic pressure sensor
