Description

The AWAC 400 kHz ADCP has become the standard reference technology in submerged wave-measurement applications. Thousands of these ADCPs have been deployed to capture the full wave spectrum, in combination with current profiles.         
With a 100 m maximum range for wave measurements and 1.5 Hz sampling of the surface elevation, the AWAC 400 kHz is the optimal tool for deeper-water current and wave measurements.
