Valeport has released the latest addition to its portfolio of sound velocity sensors and profilers, the SWiFT SVP.
The SWiFT SVP handheld profiler has been designed from the outset with the intention of a seamless workflow, and has integral GPS to geo-locate every profile, the manufacturer said, adding that this new compact unit features high accuracy sound velocity, pressure, temperature, salinity and density measurement, plus integral GPS, rechargeable battery and LED status indications for GPS, battery and communications.
Using a ‘twist and go’ switch on the unit, data can be easily and quickly downloaded, reviewed and translated to common SVP formats wirelessly via Bluetooth Smart, which uses the SWiFT APP on iOS devices where data can be instantly shared via FTP, email and cloud services. Valeport’s standard DataLogX2 software for PC use will also support the SWiFT SVP.
With a battery endurance of up to a week and charging via USB, the SWiFT SVP is intended for coastal, harbor and inland hydrographic survey use, and offers the quality sound velocity profiles in a compact, robust and portable package, Valeport said.
Valeport sales and marketing manager Kevin Edwards commented, “We’re aiming the SWiFT at the popular shallow water market and whilst it’s constructed from Titanium to provide unmatched durability, includes our innovative sensor technology for exceptional data quality, and has been meticulously designed for easy handling weighing in at 2Kg, the SWiFT is simply our best, professional and affordable SVP to date. And we anticipate the SWiFT will lead the way in the support of hydrographic surveying.”
The SWiFT SVP is now available to order for deliveries from August 2015.
