The 300 kHz long-range Horizontal Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (H-ADCP) is a narrow beam acoustic monitoring system that “looks” out horizontally from an offshore or coastal to measure near-surface water currents and multi-directional waves.
This revolutionary tool uses patented BroadBand signal processing to obtain an optimal combination of range, resolution and data quality, which simply cannot be replicated using NarrowBand products.
The H-ADCP measures currents at up to 128 individual points at up to 200 meters horizontal range, offering a clear illustration of the complete flow structure.
For long-range, long-term deployments, the Long Ranger is the best choice for collecting detailed data on seasonal and annual current structure fluctuations for scientific research and offshore oil and gas applications.
The highly reliable Long Ranger delivers the precision accuracy you require, combined with the dependability of RDI's proven Workhorse products.
Hundreds of Long Ranger units are currently deployed on:
• environmental monitoring buoys
• offshore oil rigs
• polar research moorings
The Monitor is Teledyne RD Instruments’ most popular direct-reading Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler. The unit is typically bottom frame-mounted and hard-wired to shore to provide real-time monitoring of coastal currents.
The Monitor’s high data accuracy and reliability make it a favorite for deployments in high-volume traffic areas such as ports and harbors, where the data is often integrated into a Vessel Traffic Monitoring System.
The self-contained Sentinel is Teledyne RD Instruments’ most popular and versatile Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) configuration, boasting thousands of units in operation in over 50 countries around the world.
By providing profiling ranges from 1 to 165m, the high-frequency Sentinel ADCP is ideally suited for a wide variety of applications. The Sentinel also offers unbeatable precision, with unmatched low power consumption, allowing you to collect more data over an extended period.
The lightweight and adaptable Sentinel is easily deployed on buoys, boats, or mounted on the seafloor. Real-time data can be transmitted to shore via a cable link or acoustic modem, or data can be stored internally for short or long-term deployments. The Sentinel is easily upgraded to include pressure, bottom tracking, and/or directional wave measurement—for the ultimate data collection solution.
Workhorse QuarterMaster ADCP. Teledyne RDI's new 150 kHz QuarterMaster ADCP has been designed to fill a gap between our 300 kHz Workhorse ADCPs and our 75 kHz Workhorse Long Ranger. This unit offers an extended current profiling range over our higher frequency units, in our proven Long Ranger configuration. The Quartermaster is ideally suited for applications in which you're interested in measuring the top 300 meters of the water column. The highly versatile QuarterMaster can also be upgraded to include our bottom tracking option.
After fifteen years of astounding success, the next generation of Teledyne RDI ADCP products has arrived.
By all accounts, our Workhorse Acoustic Doppler Current Profiling (ADCP) products continue to live up to their name. With nearly 13,000 Workhorse products delivered worldwide, and hundreds of thousands of hours of data collected, Workhorse remains the standard to which others aspire. Now the company that brought you this technology is ready to wow you once again.
The Sentinel V, the first in our series of V products, is loaded with new features and capabilities destined to redefine and revolutionize your current profiling activities.
