CURRENT METER

Aquadopp 6000 m

High-performance full ocean depth, single-point current meter with titanium housing

Highlights

  • Full ocean-depth single-point current meter
  • Titanium housing
  • Diagnostics mode for mooring performance evaluation

Overview

  • With all the features and capabilities of the standard Aquadopp, the deepwater Aquadopp 6000 m current meter has been used and proven by oceanographers around the world for almost 20 years. Thanks to innovative data diagnostic features for challenging environments, it provides exceptionally high-quality 3D currents in a form factor that is easy to install in any type of mooring line configuration, or simply attached to a bottom or surface platform.

    Raw magnetometer data can be stored for post calibration of compass when used without the inductive modem option.

Applications

  • Studies of deep-water currents
  • Studies of tidal currents
  • Attached to mooring lines
  • Measurements of unaffected currents from physical structures
  • In conjunction with riser monitoring systems
  • Alternative to conventional current meters with errors due to fouling
  • Combination of currents and high-accuracy CTD data
  • Near-bed current measurements from landers
  • Deep ocean mining support
