Acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCP)
By means of a dedicated transceiver and transducer, we are adding acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) functionality to our scientific echo sounder. It's all in the EK80 Family.
The Simrad EK80 once again confirms its position as the leading scientific instrument for measurements of aquatic ecosystems. With the EC150-3C transducer, the EK80 repeats its performance as an innovative acoustic system. It combines the absolute backscatter measurements from the split-beam echo sounder with physical oceanographic measurements from the acoustic doppler current profiler (ADCP) beams. And it all happens in one single instrument.
