Time moves on and products get upgraded or replaced.
The products below are either being phased out now or obsolete.
It is possible you still have a specified requirement and need the exact same product, which may be still be possible (subject to parts), just contact email@example.com to find out.
Equally, there might now be a better model, so a trade in could be possible as well. As manufacturers, Valeport make every effort to support older products with servicing and spares for as long as practically possible.

Replaced with rapidPro CTD
An evolution of the miniCTD and rapidSV, the rapidCTD has been designed to deliver the highest quality CTD casts at rapid drop rates.
An evolution of the miniCTD and rapidSV, the rapidCTD is designed to operate autonomously and optionally in conjunction with the Teledyne OceanScience rapidCAST underway profiling winch to deliver the highest quality CTD casts, while the vessel is underway. A conductivity cell designed for optimum flow-through, a fast response thermistor sensor and a 0.01% pressure sensor synchronously sampling at up to 32Hz deliver the highest quality profiles in a robust package.
The MIDAS DWR Directional Wave Recorder replaces the old Model 730D instrument, and represents a significant advance in PUV wave recording technology.
As well as the standard non-directional data available from the MIDAS WTR, the MIDAS DWR also performs full onboard directional data analysis, allowing real time directional information at an unsurpassed 2° resolution. The unique features of the MIDAS DWR make it the most cost-effective solution to directional wave monitoring requirements in all shallow water coastal applications.
The MIDAS WTR Wave Recorder uses the proven Linear Wave Theory wave analysis method of measurement.
The MIDAS WTR benefits from Valeport’s latest sensor measurement technology, together with 64 bit data processing, and an improved range of sampling options. Fast data upload, quick change battery carousel and intuitive operating software make the MIDAS WTR one of the most versatile yet easy to use pressure based wave recorders available.
The Dual miniIPS is a development of the industry standard miniIPS precision underwater pressure sensor. 2x 0.01% accuracy, independent pressure sensors are mounted in the front face of the instrument offering redundant observations and potentially, vessel time saving where multiple observation sessions can be carried out in a single sortie.
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 and redundant depth information in real time.
Valeport’s GPRS data telemetry solution is supplied in our robust IP67 housing, which also contains an internal battery pack for total autonomy.
Compatible with most Valeport products as well as some other third party products, these GPRS telemetry units are designed to provide data files from the instrument to third party Internet / FTP sites and data display services.
The units are supplied pre-configured with a pay as you go SIM from GO-SIM. (http://www.gosim.com/), these SIM cards provide GPRS coverage in ~80 countries (subject to coverage). While these cards may not be the most cost-effective solution in a particular country they allow a great deal of flexibility and on average in Europe, data costs are ~ £0.01 per transmission.
Try the fastCTD
The MONITOR CTD+ utilises the same accurate, robust sensors and synchronised sampling techniques as the MIDAS range, but packaged as a smaller, lightweight unit to suit small boat or shallow water applications.
The addition of a an extra sensor makes the MONITOR CTD+ a versatile and cost effective tool for gathering profiles of CTD and one other parameter of either Turbidity, Dissolved Oxygen or Chlorophyll.
The MIDAS CTD (previously known as the Model 606) is Valeport's premier CTD Profiler.
High accuracy sensors (including ±0.01% pressure) and robust titanium design allow reliable operation to 6000m depth, under the harshest conditions.
It also features truly synchronised sampling to ensure that all sensors are sampled at exactly the same point during a profile. Primarily for use as a self recording profiler, the MIDAS CTD also has a range of communications options for real time use, and the low power consumption and large memory also make it suitable for longer term deployments.
The miniCTD is a new profiling CTD from Valeport, designed for short term or budget applications where sensor performance cannot be compromised.
Utilising the same Conductivity and Temperature technology available on our larger instruments, the miniCTD runs on a single C cell, and is fitted with a large Flash memory to record several hundred profiles.
Supplied with DataLog Express software, the device features a variety of pre-programmed sampling modes for easy setup and operation. Available in both 6000m titanium and 500m acetal versions.
Based on the leading MIDAS CTD Profiler, the Monitor CTD offers excellent performance but in a smaller, lightweight package for shallow water applications.
With internal battery pack and large memory, the Monitor CTD is suitable for both self recording operations down to 500m depth, and real time use with a choice of data output protocols.
Try the SWiFTsvp
The Monitor SVP has been developed from Valeport's world leading Midas SVP, utilising the exceptional digital time of flight sound velocity sensor and synchronised sampling technique, but packaged as a smaller, lightweight unit to suit small boat or shallow water applications.
The MIDAS SVP is the new name for Valeport's renowned Model 650 Mk2 Sound Velocity Profiler, and it gives the most accurate Sound Velocity Profiles currently possible.
As well as using the world leading digital time of flight sound speed sensor, this instrument also has a ±0.01% pressure sensor, and features Valeport's synchronised sampling technique to guarantee that all sensors are sampled at exactly the same point during a profile. Titanium construction and a large memory make it suitable for rapid profiling down to 6000m depth.
Replaced with rapidPro SVT
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.
Try the Model 106 current meter
The Model 108 MkIII is the third generation of the successful Valeport 108 direct reading current meter, and has been developed to meet the needs of oceanographers, hydrographers and surveyors.
Speed and Direction sensors are fitted as standard, with optional Conductivity, Temperature and Depth sensors.
Full control and set up of the 108 MkIII and viewing of data is achieved directly via the customer's PC with Valeport's DataLog™ software or the Model 8008 Control Display Unit.
The Model 802 is the very latest in Valeport's electromagnetic flow sensing technology, developed over many years from the original IOS design.
State of the art electronics design ensures low power operation, yet maintaining low noise and high stability.
A range of sensor heads and electronics packages mean that the Model 802 can be used in a wide variety of real time applications, or can easily be interfaced to customers' existing systems to provide a reliable, accurate current meter.
The Model 308 has been developed using proven industry standard sensors to meet the needs of oceanographers, hydrographers and surveyors who require an accurate current meter with flexibility of configuration and large memory capacity, which can output data directly to a PC and can be used in both self recording and direct reading modes with a variety of cables.
All data is compatible with Valeport's DataLog™ software.
The SoundBar 2 Digital Bar Checker offers a convenient, quick and safe method of obtaining sound velocity data for calibration of echosounders and other acoustic devices. Developed from the acclaimed miniSVS sound velocity sensor, the SoundBar 2 uses a digital time of flight technique that gives the most accurate sound velcoity data in the world. Coupled to a pressure sensor in a durable titanium housing, the SoundBar 2 is lowered through the water column, measuring the sound velocity as it goes. The display unit records this data and presents the mean sound velocity value over the profile, which may then be output in a variety of industry standard formats to the echosounder.
