Water Velocity Measurement
Sampling Strategy. During sampling, the Aquadopp atlernates
between operational and wait states - most of the time is spent
in wait state. When done, the Aquadopp goes into sleep state.
Temperature Range -5°C to 40°C
Compass Type Flux-gate
Tilt Type Liquid level
Pressure Type Strain-gauge
External devices. Synchronized to external devices via RDS3
master protocol (SeaBird and FSI CTDs)
The Aquadopp periodically records data to diagnose environmental
conditions (mooring vibration, other mooring motion, wave velocities)
and to monitor the health of the system.
Antifouling paint May be applied
to all surfaces
Dimensions Weight in air Weight
The Ultimate 3D Ocean Current Meter
The Aquadopp acoustic Doppler current meter is a new paradigm for current measurement. Designed as an industrial product, it uses methods, techniques, and components from the world of consumer electronics. It's intelligent power management scheme traces it's roots to the demanding cellular phone industry. With Aquadopp, the bulkiness of typical Doppler current meters is gone and now you can have the compact, easily-handled package you have all requested. The Aquadopp exclusively uses durable, corrosion-proof plastic and titanium, and it gives you uncompromising data quality and long term deployments.
Measuring 7.5 cm in diameter and
50 cm in length, the Aquadopp is small and easy to handle.
The OEM version is 12 cm shorter
and does not contain recorder or bateries.
This 3D vector-averaging Doppler
sensor includes built-in solid state recorder, pressure sensor,
batteries and internal temperature sensor. You can use synchronized
interfaces and you can log data from high-precision external CTDs.
The Aquadopp software suite operates
under Win 32 operating systems (W95/NT) and it contains modules
for real time data collection deployment planning, data recovery,
and systems diagnosis.
Sampling strategy: During sampling, the Aquadopp alternates
between operational and wait states. the wait state reduces energy
consumption about a factor of 10. When sampling is complete, the
Aquadopp goes into sleep state.
The Aquadopp can record data to diagnose environmental conditions
at user-selected intervals. This allows you to see the effect of
mooring motion, wave orbital velocity and to monitor the health
of the system.
Recorder capacity: 2 MB
Battery capacity: 3 month deployment
on alkaline batteries, up to one year with lithium
