Teledyne RDI Sentinel V50 (500 kHz) ADCP
|Within Vocab||SeaVoX Device Catalogue|
|Alternative Labels||RDI Sentinel V50|
|Definition||An Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) used to measure currents throughout the water column. The instrument can be used for a wide variety of coastal and upper ocean applications, and can be deployed on buoys or mounted on the seafloor. Standard outputs are 3 axis velocities, echo intensity, distance to surface, error velocity validation (3 beams), and redundant error velocity validation (4 beams). The instrument includes temperature, pressure, compass, and tilt sensors. It has an integrated 5th beam which provides a direct vertical velocity measurement and a 5th range to the surface measurement, allowing for turbulence and waves measurement capabilities. Users can select multiple bandwidths. Real-time data can be transmitted to shore via a cable link or acoustic modem, or data can be stored internally for short or long-term deployments. It can also be upgraded to include bottom track for vessel-mounted applications. The instrument profiles from <1m to >150 m and has a 200m depth rating. Its depth cell sizes range from 0.5 to 4 m, with velocity accuracies to 0.3 % of the water velocity relative to the ADCP +- 0.3 cm/s. The velocity resolution is 0.1 cm/s with a range between +-5 and +-20 m/s. The ping rate can be a maximum of 4 Hz. Echo intensity ranges 80 dB with a precision of +-1.5 dB.|
