CURRENT PROFILER

Signature500

Mean currents and turbulence, plus wave height, direction and ice tracking

Highlights

  • Five beams for mean currents and turbulence
  • Wave height and direction
  • Acoustic ranging to ice

Overview

  • The Signature500 ADCP is designed for flexibility. It measures current profiles at up to 8 Hz sampling frequency. It can also measure direct vertical velocity profiles, wave height and direction, and acoustic ranging to ice. The center beam also functions as a biological echosounder, enabling high-resolution measurements of biomass in the water column. All these features can be combined using Nortek’s patented concurrent mode technology.

Applications

  • Turbulence studies
  • Tidal turbine operations
  • Studies of tidal currents
  • Sediment transport studies
  • Ice drift and draft studies
  • Vessel-mounted coastal surveying
  • Plankton migration studies
  • Biomass measurements
  • Directional wave measurements
  • Suitable for wave buoys
