Valeport have range of products for Environmental Monitoring applications. Leading this is the Hyperion range of fluorometers and turbidity sensors.
Integrated versions of these sensors into multi-parameter profilers are covered with SWiFTplus, fastCTD and rapidPro CTD.
Valeport's SWiFTplus Multi-Parameter Proﬁler can be supplied with either a Chlorophyll a, Fluorescein, Rhodamine or Phycocyanin sensor to combine survey-grade CTD, Sound Speed, Salinity, Density technology with Fluorometer observations.
SWiFTplus combines wide range Turbidity observations with Valeport’s survey grade sound speed, temperature and pressure sensor technology coupled with the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity and rechargeable batteries. An integral GPS module, to geo-locate each profile, completes the package. Data can be easily and quickly downloaded and reviewed wirelessly, via Bluetooth, using an App and instantly shared, in industry standard SVP formats through email and cloud services. Using the provided USB adapter or cable, Valeport’s Connect software package provides further tools.
In addition to the directly measured turbidity, sound speed, temperature and pressure observations, Conductivity, Salinity and, therefore, Density are calculated using Valeport’s proprietary algorithm developed from extensive laboratory and field work.
The Hyperion Fluorometer sensor range delivers a high performance measurement of Chlorophyll A, Fluorescein, Rhodamine and Phycocyanin in a compact & robust package ideal for ROV, AUV and general logging use.
Offered as standard in a 6000m depth rated, titanium housing the Hyperion Fluorometer has a wide range (9-30V DC) isolated power supply, data output up to 32Hz and RS232 communications.
An evolution of the miniCTD, the Fast Profiler has been designed to deliver the highest quality CTD casts at rapid drop rates.
A conductivity cell designed for optimum flow-through, a fast response thermistor temperature sensor and a 0.01% pressure sensor synchronously sampling at 32Hz deliver the highest quality profiles in a lightweight and robust package. Add in an integral fluorometer based on Valeport’s new Hyperion range, an optional Bluetooth communications module and the fastCTD Profiler offers a unique and versatile package.
The rapidPro CTD has been developed for the rapid collection of conductivity, temperature and depth without compromising the quality of the data.
An optional integrated fluorometer sensor in either Chlorophyll A, Fluorescein, Rhodamine and Phycocyanin is also available to enhance measurement capability.
