The VA500 Altimeter delivers a new solution for the ROV, AUV and Hydrographic community to the problem of underwater positioning.
With the option of integrating a high accuracy pressure sensor (0.01%) as used in the miniIPS it becomes an unbeatable package. State of the art signal processing offers unrivalled range and performance from a 500kHz transducer. Expect millimetre precision, 0.1m – 100m range, RS232/RS485/0-5V & 0-10V analogue outputs with a wide range power supply in a compact, robust package.
State of the art signal processing technology provides stable, repeatable readings while allowing the range to be extended to unrivalled distances for a 500kHz altimeter.
