Aquadopp Z-Cell 1 MHz

Aquadopp Z-Cell 1 MHz

Up to 25 m current profiling range and no blanking; can measure near-surface or near-bottom currents

Need to collect accurate 3D currents very near the seabed or sea surface, in addition to a full water-column profile?

Description

The Z-Cell (Zero Cell) Aquadopp allows current measurement to start right at the instrument’s level through an innovative approach: it has side-looking beams fully integrated into the instrument’s head, effectively removing the blanking distance normally applicable to ADCPs.
