Valeport are highlighting their latest products in Optical Sensors and CTD Profilers at the Oceanology International 2016.

Valeport is using OI 2016 as the platform for the first showing of their latest sensor in the Hyperion optical range, the Hyperion-T and their newest profiling technology innovation the rapidCTD. The UK’s leading manufacturer of oceanographic, hydrographic and hydrometric instrumentation will also showcase a portfolio of other new products currently in early release.

Created for Inshore, Coastal and Oceanographic Monitoring, the Hyperion-T sensor determines the suspended solids and turbidity for applications ranging from water quality to sediment transport and dredge monitoring.

The new Hyperion-T is a compact, low-power probe, which is accurate and rugged. Housed in titanium, Valeport’s Hyperion-T is one of the few turbidity sensors to offer full ocean depth from one instrument.

Valeport’s latest addition to its portfolio of profiling technology is the rapidCTD.

Developed primarily to interface with the Teledyne Oceanscience RapidCAST winch, the new CTD is being shown at OI for the first time ahead of a planned general release in April. The rapidCTD allows oceanographic data to be profiled from a moving vessel without compromising the quality of the data. Delivering the highest quality CTD casts at rapid drop rates, when used with deployment methods such as the RapidCAST the lightweight and robust sensor gives surveyors the ability to eliminate survey downtime and minimize bathymetry data uncertainty associated with challenging sound velocity conditions.

Valeport is continually evolving products and is currently working on an integral Fluorometer function for the rapidCTD and an improved power capability for a longer operation time.

Kevin Edwards, Valeport sales and marketing manager, commented:

“Oceanology International is a great platform to introduce our two newest products for the first time prior to their general release. We’ll be actively seeking visitors views, feedback and comments so that we can hone these two new releases and continue to innovate and lead the way in supporting the hydrographic and oceanographic survey sector.”
