Teledyne Marine Pinnacle 45 ADCP

Long-Range Self-Contained & Real-Time ADCP

The new Pinnacle 45 is a 45 kHz phased-array ADCP that is capable of profiling ocean currents to 1000 m in a footprint typically associated with ADCPs achieving half of that range, greatly increasing portability and simplifying deployment. The versatile Pinnacle 45 is designed to be mounted from an oil platform, inside or over the side of a vessel, in subsurface and surface buoys, as well as bottom and in-line frames—anywhere long-range profiling is required.

Product Features:

  • Swappable Configuration: Convert from Self-Contained to Real-Time without an additional purchase. 
  • Adaptable: Independent or Interlaced long range and high resolution modes allow users to optimize their system for unique deployment requirements, at ranges of up to 1000m, offering the best of both worlds in a single instrument. 
  • Continuous Sampling: Pinnacle’s 4 beams ping simultaneously (as opposed to individually), allowing for simultaneous sampling of a 1000m current profile.
  • Easy Data Access: Redundant MicroSD memory cards for added data security—one resides in the electronics for data download and another in the battery compartment allowing for easy data access.
  • Compass Enhancements: Pinnacle includes both heading field calibration and magnetometer data, allowing you to utilize either or both and to turn your mooring faster. Field calibrate your compass
    pre-deployment or use the magnetometer data and apply a correction post-deployment.
  • Deployment Status Indicator: External LED light ensures you know the system is operational when deployed. 
  • Advanced Monitoring: Health Monitoring and leak detection provide users with the peace of mind that their system is operating as intended. 
  • Increased Data: 20° phased-array beam allows you to measure within 6% of range to surface (air/sea or bottom), closing the gap on missed data. 
  • Rugged and Robust: Independent main electronics housing and battery compartment and a no metal in contact with the water designed housing and transducer limit the risk of damage from leaks.
  • Long Life: Alkaline or lithium battery compatible, with 18-month deployment durations possible on 4 Li batteries. 
  • Versatile: Collect stored or real-time data from stationary or moving platforms, including rigs, vessels and moorings. 
  • Mooring Compatibility: Pinnacles hardware fits into most existing mooring designs offered by key manufacturers.​
