rapidPro SVT

Rapid collection of sound velocity profiles with no compromise in the quality of the data is the rapidPro SVT’s great party trick.

It has now been further developed with a new optimised shape and removable ProLogger module that combines a rechargeable lithium ion battery, data logger, GPS receiver and Bluetooth comms module. Accurate Sound Velocity 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 up to 5 m/s.
