Nortek Aquadopp Profiler 600K Hz Frontview 2

CURRENT PROFILER

Aquadopp Profiler 600 kHz

Up to 40 m current profiling range; easy to operate and deploy

Highlights

  • Up to 40 m current profiling range
  • Ideal for mean current measurements
  • Easy to operate and deploy

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 600 kHz version has a current profiling range of up to 40 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

  • Mean flow measurements with high focus on ease of use and simplicity
  • Measurements in flow regimes with strong variations in flow speeds
  • Studies of tidal currents
  • Measurements of combinations of waves and currents
  • Suitable for wave buoys
