Nortek Aquadopp Profiler 2 Mhz Frontview 2

CURRENT PROFILER

Aquadopp Profiler 2 MHz

Small and compact, short-range current profiling; option for PUV wave measurements

Highlights

  • Up to 10 m current profiling range
  • Optional right-angle head
  • PUV-based directional wave measurements

Overview

  • The Aquadopp Profiler is a highly versatile Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) available in four profiling range options, from < 1 m to > 85 m. The 2 MHz version has a current profiling range of up to 10 m. Designed for simple yet powerful operation, this current profiler is packed with features used by engineers and researchers to enable accurate and effective hydrodynamic data collection in a variety of environmental conditions.

Applications

  • Near-bed current profiles with fine vertical resolution
  • Mean flow measurements with high focus on ease of use and simplicity
  • Measurements in flow regimes with strong variations in flow speeds
  • Projects with needs for both high-resolution and normal-range current measurements
  • Measurements of combinations of waves and currents
  • Studies of deep-water currents
  • Studies of tidal currents
  • Mounted on surface buoys
  • Suitable for wave buoys
