Acoustic Doppler & Current Profiler (ADCP)

    • Vertical beam provides more precise bathymetric data and improved characterization of slopes and irregular river beds.
    • Ease of use—easy to carry, easy to deploy, and easy to operate; just power and go.
    • Qrz-control—automatic adaptive sampling continuously optimizes your discharge measurement from bank to bank, thus ensuring the highest quality data without your intervention.
    • Reduced size, weight, and flow disturbance—the sleek new phased array transducer design provides increased data accuracy, as well as reduced size, weight, and flow disturbance.
    • Versatile—a single instrument can now deliver high quality data in a 0.5m stream or a 40m river.
    • Superior surface measurements — interwoven independent and short range measurements improve the discharge computation in your critical surface layer.
    • Platform stability – RiverRay’s new float, designed and built by OceanScience, boasts reduced drag, causes less flow disturbance, and provides superior handling – even in high water velocities and waves.
    • No cables required – data is wirelessly transmitted to your shore station via BluetoothTM technology.
    • DGPS compatible – integrate an external DGPS for difficult conditions, such as moving beds.
    • Surface Water Data – Catch Basins, Reservoirs, Lakes, River Basins, Streams, etc.
