QUALITY UNDERWATER INSTRUMENTATION
Fixed tidal measurement, port surveys, diving operations or spill monitoring during dredging operations require a variety of equipment to produce Hydrographic and Environmental data. Valeport offer Tide Gauges, Wave Recorders, Current Meters and CTD packages to meet these requirements.
Tidal Monitoring System Case Study: High Level, Detailed Level
Valeport's SWiFTplus Multi-Parameter Proﬁler can be supplied with either a Chlorophyll a, Fluorescein, Rhodamine or Phycocyanin sensor to combine survey-grade CTD, Sound Speed, Salinity, Density technology with Fluorometer observations.
The package is completed with the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity, rechargeable battery and an integral GPS module to geo-locate each proﬁle..
Now rated to 500m as standard with 0.01% FS accuracy, SWiFTplus combines wide range Turbidity observations with Valeport’s survey grade sound speed, temperature and pressure sensor technology coupled with the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity and rechargeable batteries. An integral GPS module, to geo-locate each profile, completes the package. Data can be easily and quickly downloaded and reviewed wirelessly, via Bluetooth, using an App and instantly shared, in industry standard SVP formats through email and cloud services.
The TideMaster is a small, cost effective Water Level Recorder, specifically designed for applications where the user requires an accurate record of water height, but with the added option of meteorological data via a ultrasonic wind speed and direction sensor.
Suitable for use in fresh or salt water, the TideMaster can be deployed for up to 1 year, dependant on the sampling rate, with instrument set up and data retrieval via an optional display panel or using the PC software supplied. Alternatively, the system can be supplied with radio modules for real time data transmission.
TideStation has the TideMaster Tide Gauge as its core - Valeport’s industry leading Tide Gauge system.
Offering Pressure, Radar and hybrid tidal observation techniques coupled with interfaces to other meteorological and 3rd party systems. All data can be recorded locally and broadcast to a central command and control point as required. Within the TideStation enclosure you will find all required ancillary infrastructure to maintain power to the Tide and Met equipment interfaced and your chosen communications systems.
A portable survey solution for monitoring of Tide, Met and other sensors. Housed in a large rugged ABS case, the TideStation (Portable) offers a choice of either UHF or GPRS telemetry, with connection to Pressure or Radar sensors along with interface to other meteorological systems. Data is recorded locally and broadcast to base stations as required.
The VRS-20 is a pulsed K-band radar level sensor developed by Valeport to work seamlessly with the TideMaster Tide Display/Logger and other third party data loggers using RS232, RS485 and SDI-12 communication.
Versatile and simple to install, the VRS-20 addresses a number of the issues traditionally associated with water level measurement. Non-contact technology removes the installation, corrosion & fouling issues of submerged sensors, while simplifying datum control. Accuracy and performance are unaffected by changes in water density and atmospheric conditions.
