QUALITY UNDERWATER INSTRUMENTATION
With Sound Velocity through the water being of prime importance during seismic surveys, Valeport offer a variety of sensors and probes to measure sound velocity with an unsurpassed accuracy level. Whether you require just a sensor or a SVP for profiling, we have products for surface use and up to 6000m depth operation.
The MIDAS SVX2 is the latest version of Valeport's unique instrument.
Recognising the conflict faced by users requiring the superior Sound Velocity data from an SVP, but still needing the Salinity and Density data from a CTD, the MIDAS SVX2 combines both technologies to give the best of both worlds.
Now fitted with a 0.01% pressure sensor as standard, the SVX2 also uses synchronised sampling to ensure perfect profiles, and since the digital time of flight SV sensor is the most accurate in the world, it's also possible to compare the true sound velocity data with that generated by commonly used equations.
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 Valeport rapidSV profiler has been developed for the fast collection of Sound Velocity Profiles, without compromising the quality of the data.
The world's most accurate Sound Velocity sensor with virtually instantaneous response time, data acquisition rates of up to 32Hz housed in a low drag housing result in the highest quality profiles at drop rates over 5 m/s.
Used as the probe with the Oceanscience Group underwaySV profiler system for near real time profiles of sound velocity without stopping the vessel. Click on the image for more info and deployment video.
