Aanderaa - Model ZPulse - Stand-Alone Current Sensor
The Aanderaa Current Sensors are available in a profiling and a single-point version with three depth ratings. We offer Doppler Current Profiler Sensor, Doppler Current Sensor and the In-line ZPulse Doppler Current Sensor.
DCPS 5400/5400R/5402/5402R/5403/5403R - Doppler Current Profiler Sensor
The Doppler Current Profiler Sensor (DCPS) is a medium range, 600kHz current profiler smart sensor. It features innovative development of the acoustic profiling ability to collect high quality current information also on moving and tilting platforms. The 5400/5400R version of the current sensor is 300m depth rated, the 5402/5402R version is 4500m depth rated and the 5403/5403R version is 6000m depth rated and is intended for commercial as well as research use. It comes with an integrated temperature sensor that can be calibrated on request.
Doppler Current Sensor (DCS)
The Aanderaa Doppler Current Sensor is a rugged, true vector averaging current sensor for measuring current speed and direction in the sea. The sensor has built-in compass and tilt sensor and may also output sea temperature. The speed range is 0 to 300 cm/s. Low current drain and flexible sampling schemes. New multi-frequency (DCS) with ZPulse technology achieves better performance using only half the power than previous models. The new, fast response compass and tilt circuitry has no moving parts achieving excellent performance in unstable areas such as in the wave zone close to surface.
In-line ZPulse Doppler Current Sensor (DCS)5800 / 5810
The inline ZPulse Doppler Current Sensor has been designed in order to easily integrate into systems offering a compact and elegant solution. The ZPulse sensor is based on a modified version of the ZPulse DCS 4520. The unit connects to a combined mooring and signal cable in one end and allow for connection of a continuation cable at the opposite end. The inline ZPulse current sensor can hold a load of up to 1300 kg. It has been developed to replace the previous Aanderaa DCS 4100 using newer technology and extending capabilities.
