Spotlight on New UV-SVP Launch, News & More - Aug 2014 

It has been a busy summer at Valeport as our new 1600m2 production facility, the Reade Building, is now fully on stream allowing us to increase production and expand our service department. 


Valeport offers total product control from design and manufacture to calibration and servicing and we are very excited about the opportunities that these new state of the art facilities allow us to provide now and in the future.  Furthermore, now that the Reade Building is up and running, we have been working hard to make improvements to delivery and lead times.

UV-SVP now in Production


Production is now underway on our latest innovation - the new UV-SVP - a small and compact direct reading package aimed primarily at AUV and ROV users, which delivers high accuracy data to compliment survey work.

 Valeport UV-SVP

The UV-SVP (Underwater Vehicle - Sound Velocity Profiler) is based on our miniSVS and offers a form factor designed for underwater vehicles where space is at a premium.



Measuring sound velocity, temperature and pressure, the UV-SVP uses Valeport's class leading time of flight sound speed sensor, a PRT temperature sensor and a 0.01% accuracy pressure transducer in a compact package weighing just 750g in air. 

The lightweight titanium housing gives a depth rating to 3000m as standard.  A wide range (9-30v DC) isolated power supply and RS232 communications complete the package.

Spotlight on: Calibration facilities


With two dedicated calibration facilities, four dedicated staff and a host of equipment, throughput of calibrations are increasing for both new and service products.  

"This investment is paying off for us now explains Kevin Edwards, Sales & Marketing Manager.  By having one calibration facility in each of our two buildings, demands from production, service and R & D are easily met.  The other benefit is a continuous cross check on standards between the two to ensure our quality requirements are maintained".
