Recognizing the conflict faced by users requiring the superior Sound Velocity data from an SVP, but still needing the Salinity and Density data from a CTD, the MIDAS SVX2 combines both technologies to give the best of both worlds.
Now fitted with a 0.01% pressure sensor as standard, the SVX2 also uses synchronized sampling to ensure perfect profiles, and since the digital time of flight SV sensor is the most accurate in the world, it's also possible to compare the true sound velocity data with that generated by commonly used equations.
The unit is fitted with the following sensors:
Type: Valeport “time of flight” sound velocity sensor
Range: 1400 to 1600m/s standard. Factory fit option of 1600 to 1850m/s is available
Accuracy: ± 0.03m/s
