Valeport unveils SWiFTplus
We are pleased to launch a unique new probe that combines the power of our popular SWiFT SVP and a turbidity sensor.
The new 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.
Using the new Valeport Connect app, data can be quickly downloaded and reviewed wirelessly via Bluetooth, and instantly shared in industry standard formats through email and cloud services.
Valeport’s new turbidity sensor addition is essentially two sensors in one. The first is a “classic” turbidity sensor (nephelometry using a 90˚ beam angle) for low turbidity levels (0–2000 NTU) and the second uses an OBS optical backscatter arrangement (~120˚ beam angle for optical backscatter) at high turbidity levels (>20,000 NTU). Intelligent sampling eliminates the need to gain switch at higher turbidity levels.
The handheld probe has been designed from the outset with the intention of a seamless workflow and has an integral GPS to geo-locate every profile. SWiFTplus is intended for coastal, harbour and inland environmental and hydrographic survey use and offers the highest quality sound velocity profiles in a compact, robust and portable package with the addition of a turbidity sensor.
