QUALITY UNDERWATER INSTRUMENTATION
Meeting the demands of small ROV’s to work class vehicles in the offshore oil & gas industry, Valeport have a range of sensors and probes to measure the physical parameters vital to safe operation. From sensors to aid operation of the vehicle to probes for data input into metrology and construction operations, our “industry standard” packages are designed and built to perform.
AUV requirements can mean provision of complete housed instruments or OEM style for users own interface. Our small, low power, accurate and robust sensors will aid AUV manufacturers and users to get the data required.
See our ROV, AUV and ASV Case Studies:
The Hyperion Fluorometer sensor range delivers a high performance measurement of Chlorophyll A, and Fluorescein in a compact & robust package ideal for ROV and AUV use.
Offered as standard in a 6000m depth rated, titanium housing the Hyperion Fluorometer has a wide range (9-30V DC) isolated power supply, data output up to 32Hz and RS232 communications.
The miniIPS is a precision underwater pressure sensor; 0.01% accuracy, a titanium housing and a choice of pressure ranges make it a cost effective solution for offshore engineers, vehicle pilots, and other operators who require highly accurate depth information in real time.
The miniIPS is also compatible with Valeport's MIDAS BathyPack and BathyLog software, allowing the depth data to be continually updated for Density variations in the water column.
The miniSVS Sound Velocity Sensors use state of the art digital "time of flight" technology to provide the lowest noise, highest accuracy, best resolution sound velocity data available.
Small size and a choice of sensor lengths down to just 25mm make the sensor suitable for a variety of applications, and the optional pressure or temperature sensor adds versatility. There is a choice of data formats to allow interface to existing systems. We will also consider OEM and custom designs.
The Model 803 is designed specifically for use on ROVs and other underwater vehicles, providing real time relative water velocity information for pilots.
It may be fitted to ROVs to provide actual through the water speeds, or fitted to Tether Management Systems to give measurement of local flow conditions. Measurements are updated every second and the ROVLog™ software provides a graphic and data display, and enables data to be logged to disk.;
Designed from the outset with the intention of a seamless workflow, the SWiFT SVP has integral GPS to geo-locate every profile.
This new compact unit will feature high accuracy SV, Pressure and Temperature as you would expect, plus integral GPS, re-chargeable battery, LED status indications for GPS, battery and communications.
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.
Ultra-fast, ultra-compact, ultra-dependable.
The next generation of sound velocity sensor.
Redesigned from the connector up, the UltraSV offers a truly smart and exchangeable sound velocity sensor without compromise.
Based on the Valeport miniSVS, the UV-SVP offers a form-factor designed for Underwater Vehicles where space is at a premium.
Incorporating Valeport’s class leading time of flight sound speed sensor, a PRT temperature sensor and a 0.01% pressure sensor in a compact package weighing just 750 grams (in air), the lightweight titanium housing gives a depth rating of 3000m. A wide range (9-30V DC) isolated power supply and RS232 communications complete the package.
The VA500 Altimeter delivers a new approach to the problem of underwater positioning. State of the art signal processing offers unrivalled range and performance from a 500kHz transducer. Millimetre precision, 0.1m – 100m range, RS232/RS485/0-5V & 0-10V analogue outputs with a wide range power supply address the needs of the ROV, AUV and Hydrographic community in a compact, robust package.
The option of integrating a high accuracy pressure sensor (0.01%) as used in the MiniIPS offers an unbeatable package for your underwater positioning requirements.
