Nortek is a company that develops and manufacturers Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCP) and current meters for use in the ocean, rivers, lakes and laboratories. We provide product sales and technical support all over the world with many local offices around the world. Our products span from single point turbulence sensors, wave measurement systems to long range current profilers. Our customers are scientists, research institutions, and consulting engineers, all with demanding applications requiring state-of-the-art instrumentation that is reliable and easy to use.
We pride ourselves on being innovative, both in product development and production processes. We have a number of technological 'firsts' and several of our products are protected by US patents. Every Nortek product, manufactured to order based on your specifications, must pass a strict quality control process before it leaves Nortek. This includes burn-in test of all electronics, tank tests to verify the performance of our acoustics elements, and calibration of sensors for pressure, temperature, tilt and compass. In addition, we test each underwater instrument in the ocean before we ship it to you.
