A direct reading, vector averaging current meter with surface readout unit and 200m cable. The unit can also be operated via a short lead, over an ROV umbilical. The Model has been developed to meet the needs of oceanographers, hydrographers and surveyors. Speed and Direction sensors are fitted as standard, with optional Conductivity, Temperature and Depth sensors.

Data Acquisition - The vector average is based on a 5 second period during which impeller counts are measured and a single mass compass reading is made, and the vector average is built up over the averaging period set. Averaging period is any multiple of 5 seconds, up to a maximum of 30 minutes. For the optional parameters, the sample is taken at the end of each sample period, and averaged over the averaging period. Real time display is updated at the end of each averaging period.
