Description

The Valeport Model 106 Current Meter is a light weight, cost effective impeller current meter, designed for real time current measurement or short to medium term autonomous deployments. Titanium construction ensures durability, and the optional temperature and pressure sensors increase the versatility of the instrument.

Ideal for use in rivers and coastal applications, or from small boats, the Valeport Model 106 Current Meter is simple to use with either the Windows based PC software supplied, or an optional dedicated display unit.

The current meter works on a basic 1 second cycle data acquisition, during which the impeller counts are taken and a single compass heading reading is made. From this, East and North velocity vectors are calculated, which are then summed over the averaging period. The additional parameters of temperature and pressure (if fitted) are sampled once every sample period, and averaged over the averaging period.
