Featured Product Ranges

SWiFT CTD

Conductivity, temperature and depth sensors for hydrographic survey

The SWiFT CTD range provides direct survey-grade measurement of conductivity, temperature and depth, as well as computed salinity, density and sound velocity. An integrated GNSS receiver provides accurate geo-location, and the battery can be conveniently recharged via USB.

The modules feature Bluetooth® wireless communications, as well as USB and serial, and data can be transferred automatically with no user input required. With a simple and smooth 90-degree turn, the magnetic switch ring is easy to operate, even with cold hands.
