Valeport MIDAS CTD+ – Available for rental, hire and purchase from Ashtead Technology.

Valeport applies its unique distributed processing technology to the MIDAS CTD+ (formerly known as Model 606+), resulting in the multiparameter CTD that is essentially tailor made to suit each customer’s requirements. The instrument is able to accept any combination of a range of industry standard sensors, giving calibrated data in both autonomous and real time operations. A choice of titanium or acetal construction makes it suitable for coastal of deep water operations, and the intuitive software allows a range of both simple and complex sampling regimes. Please contact us for details of optional further sensors (eg Tubity, DO, ORP, Chlorophyll, PAR etc).

The MIDAS CTD+ is fitted with CTD sensors, either remote or bulkhead mounted. The CTD+ can also operate with Valeport's water sampler system, described on a separate brochure.
