Scientific And Academic Applications

Scientific and Academic

Research programmes demand both technology and affordable products to cover studies from rivers to full ocean depth.  Valeport have gained significant knowledge through close collaboration with some of the worlds leading institutes.  A clear example of this is our CTD sensor fitted to the seal tags of the Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU) of St Andrews University, Scotland http://www.smru.st-andrews.ac.uk as they monitor marine mammal behaviour within their oceanic environment, by obtaining oceanographic quality CTD casts.

Hyperion Turbidity

$1.00

The new Valeport Hyperion-T is essentially 2 sensors in one.

The first is a “classic” turbidity sensor, a nephelometer that uses a 90° beam angle, for low turbidity levels (0 to 1,000 NTU). The second, for high turbidity levels (1,000 to 6,000 NTU) uses an Optical Backscatter (OBS) arrangement (~120° beam angle). Intelligent sampling and use of a 24 bit ADC eliminates the need to gain switch at higher turbidity levels. The optical head is very compact – measuring just 20mm in diameter and with a full ocean depth rating lends itself to OEM type solutions.

A compact & robust package ideal as a standalone sensor, for ROV and AUV integration or used as part of a multi-sensor array and data logger system.
