Profiling just got more powerful

Watch the SWiFTplus video


Designed for coastal, harbour and inland environmental and hydrographic surveys, the new SWiFTplus combines sensors for multiple profiles in a single drop with seamless data transfer for instant use. This technology and precision are combined in an easy to use compact, robust and portable handheld profiler.

SWiFTplus uses Valeport’s world leading high accuracy sensor technology which incorporates turbidity observations with sound speed, temperature and pressure sensor technology to also provide computed conductivity, salinity and density. This is coupled with the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity and a rechargeable battery. 

SWiFTplus has been designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK to exceed your profiling needs.



  • Multi-Parameter Profiler
    - CTD, Sound Speed, Salinity, Density
    - Dual Optical Backscatter (OBS) and Nephelometer Turbidity Sensor
  • 32Hz sampling rate
  • Bluetooth and USB connectivity
  • Integral GPS receiver for profile geo-location
  • Rechargeable Lithium Ion Batteries
  • Dedicated PC software and iOS portable device App
