The fifth, vertical beam in the Signature1000 can provide unprecedented resolution when using pulse-coherent mode (HR).

Nortek has launched a custom-made subsurface buoy ideal for use with the Signature250 and Signature500 ADCPs.

A tailor-made buoy makes the deployment of Signature ADCPs even easier!

We have made life even easier for those working with ADCPs in the field: Nortek is now launching a custom-made subsurface buoy ideal for use with the Signature250 and Signature500 ADCPs.

The Signature VM Ocean is suitable for use on larger vessels.​

Simplifying vessel-mounted current profiling and biomass measurements

​By incorporating a current profiler and echosounder in one easy-to-install, vessel-mounted instrument, Nortek is making life more straightforward for researchers interested in current profiling and biomass measurements in the upper ocean b...

Finn Ivar Marum has taken on the role of Nortek’s new CEO.

Change of management as Nortek grows and develops

After over two decades at the helm of Nortek, a specialist in oceanographic instrumentation, Atle Lohrmann is taking on new challenges at newly started Hefring Engineering in Boston. Nortek’s new CEO, Finn Ivar Marum, has been entrusted wit...

Nortek has long sponsored young sailing athletes to enable them to learn and to compete internationally

Helping young sailing athletes learn and compete internationally

Sailors are as passionate about the ocean as we are. Nortek has long sponsored young sailing athletes to enable them to learn and to compete internationally. Currently, we are helping the athletes in the Nortek Sailing Team to compete on an...

Time series of backscatter intensity of beam 1 of Signature1000, deployed in Ems-Dollart estuary at 9 m depth. Instrument is located on the seabed and is directed upwards. Vertical resolution is 20 cm and outliers are visible in a range of 80 cm near the surface.

Two problems in sediment measurements tackled

ADCPs are great for current measurements, but can they be improved for sediment measurements? Absolutely! In this article you will find out how the Signature1000 echosounder improves two important aspects of your sediment measurements.

Explaining online measurement of oceanographic data

What it is? An online measurement is real-time telemetry (or transmission) of sensor data to either a secondary telemetry system (i.e. satellite or GSM modem) or directly to a PC for real-time or near real-time display or storage.
