Nortek: Aquadopp® 6000 Current Meter

Availability: ,

With all the features and capabilities of the standard Aquadopp, the deepwater Aquadopp 6000 m current meter has been used and proven by oceanographers around the world for almost 20 years. Thanks to innovative data diagnostic features for challenging environments, it provides exceptionally high-quality 3D currents in a form factor that is easy to install in any type of mooring line configuration, or simply attached to a bottom or surface platform. Raw magnetometer data can be stored for post calibration of compass when used without the inductive modem option
