The BathyPack is one of Valeport's premier MIDAS products, using state of the art sensors to generate precision Sound Velocity and Density profiles for highly accurate depth and height data.
The simple top-end PC software, BathyLog, also allows all profile data to be used to monitor and correct multiple miniIPS pressure sensors, giving you the complete picture with one integrated sensor suite.
Robust, accurate inductive cell. Digital sampling technique means no more field calibrations.
