Your alternative to the single point!
Doppler Volume Sampler™ (DVS).
By popular demand, our newly released Doppler Volume Sampler™ (DVS) is now available for 6000M operation. Teledyne RD Instruments’ low-power DVS is ideally suited for your long-term shallow — and now deep-water — moored current measurement applications. The DVS can provide substantially improved data quality over traditional single point solutions, allowing for up to 5 bins of high resolution velocity data over a range of up to 5M. The DVS offers you the proven precision and reliability that Teledyne RDI is known for in a package and price point that meets your needs.
The new low power DVS offers an advanced alternative to single point current meters, offering up to 5 bins of high resolution data, plus the following unique technology advantages.
Frequency: 2400 kHz
Max range: 3 to 5 meters
Min blank zone: 2 cm
Number bins: 1-5
Depth rating: 750 m/6000 m
