Aanderaa: Recording Doppler Current Meter (RDCP) 600
The Aanderaa Recording Doppler Current 6000 is a medium range, 600kHz self recording doppler current profiler. Being a Doppler shift instrument, the RDCP 600 is insensitive to fouling and highly reliable.
Several profiles simultaneously, the instrument can be configured to deal with several profiles simultaneously for optimal flexibility
