CTD and dual-sensor turbidity measurementThe SWiFT CTD range provides direct survey-grade measurement of conductivity, temperature and depth, as well as computed salinity, density and sound velocity. An integrated GNSS receiver provides accurate geo-location, and the battery can be conveniently recharged via USB.

The modules feature Bluetooth® wireless communications, as well as USB and serial, and data can be transferred automatically with no user input required. With a simple and smooth 90-degree turn, the magnetic switch ring is easy to operate, even with cold hands.

Combined sound velocity measurement & fluorometer observationsThe SWiFT SVP range of sound velocity profilers outputs high-quality sound velocity, pressure and temperature measurements, and also utilises an integrated GNSS receiver for accurate geo-location.

Featuring a rugged titanium housing depth-rated to 500 metres, the versatile sensors can run for up to five days on a single charge and allow data to be quickly and easily downloaded via Bluetooth® wireless.

Chlorophyll a fluorometer sensor for ROVs & AUVsThe Hyperion range of environmental sensors is ideal for integration into deep-sea ROVs and AUVs, housed in a robust titanium enclosure rated for depths to 6000 metres.

The turbidity, hydrocarbon and Chlorophyll a sensors feature a wide range isolated power supply accepting 9-28V DC, and can output data via RS232, RS485 and Modbus.

Precision bathymetric sensor with density correctionValeport provides a range of sensors for gathering critical and high-accuracy bathymetry data for a variety of underwater applications. All sensors feature a rugged 6000 metre-rated titanium housing and can be easily integrated into unmanned underwater vehicles.

Sound Velocity SensorsValeport’s sound velocity sensors utilise the company’s proprietary time-of-flight technology and sophisticated digital signal processing to provide high-accuracy measurements that are entirely linear, resulting in reliable and consistent performance under all conditions.

The company also has their own ranges of current meters, CTD sensors, and tide and water level recorders.
