Valeport miniIPS – Available for rental, hire and purchase from Ashtead Technology.
The miniIPS is a precision underwater pressure sensor; 0.01% accuracy, a titanium housing and a choice of pressure ranges make it a cost effective solution for offshore engineers, vehicle pilots, and other operators who require highly accurate depth information in real time. The miniIPS is also compatible with Valeport's MIDAS BathyPack and BathyLog software, allowing the depth data to be continually updated for Density variations in the water column. The pressure sensor fitted to the mini IPS is a revolutionary temperature compensated piezo-resistive sensor, which delivers the performance previously only available from a resonant quartz sensor at a more cost-effective price. It also brings the advantages of long term stability, allowing longer intervals between calibration, and a smaller and more robust construction; complex and vulnerable arrangement of diaphragms and oil filled capillaries & reservoirs are no longer necessary.
