|Definition||The Valeport model 106 current meter is an impeller current meter, designed for real time underwater current measurements or short to medium term autonomous deployments. The instrument outputs the current velocity and flow heading. It is made with a styrene impeller and an in-built flux gate compass. Impeller counts and heading are read on a 1-second cycle. In Direct Reading Mode, where cable lengths are in excess of 50 m, communication is via Digital Current Loop. The Model 106 is fitted with a data acquisition micro-controller, operating at 12-bit resolution. It has the ability to run autonomously, using an internal battery, or via cabled network. The instrument itself is made from titanium and polymers. Optional additions to the current meter include temperature and pressure sensors. The velocity range is between 0.03 and 5 m/s, and the compass reads 360 degrees, with 2.5 degree accuracy. The depth rating is 500 m. Power supply can be from a D type battery or 12-20 volt DC.|
