Nortek AWAC 600: ADCP


The AWAC 600 kHz ADCP has become the standard reference technology in submerged wave-measurement applications. With a 60m maximum range for wave measurements and 2Hz sampling of the surface elevation, the AWAC 600 kHz is the optimal tool for medium water-depth current and wave measurements.


Real-time current profiles and waves to 50 m range

Acoustic surface tracking (AST) with a vertical beam

Can be used both with fixed frames and subsurface buoys


Maximum profiling range: 50 m

Cell size: 0.5-8.0 m

Number of cells: Typical 20-40, Max. 128

Velocity range: ±10 m/s horizontal, ±5 m/s along with beam

Accuracy: ±1% of measured value ±0.5 cm/s
