Rowe Technologies ADCPs

Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers

Contact us

Rowe Technologies represent the industry state-of-the-art in Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler technology. The compact form factor, powerful electronics and robust signal processing, provide a versatile platform capable of producing precise current profile measurements over extended ranges.

Each unit in the product family leverages a core, common set of electronics in a flexible form factor. This, combined with multiple packaging options, provides a cost-effective and extremely capable instrument to address a wide variety of oceanographic applications, from shallow water to full- ocean depth. Rowe Technologies ADCPs are available with single or dual frequencies between 75 and 1200kHz and in three different depth package options – 300 m, 3000 m, and 6000 m.

RS Aqua are also able to provide ClearSignal® anti-fouling coating to ADCPs as an in-house service to reduce the impact of biofouling on your instrument.

Main Components

  • Direct Reading ADCP – SeaPROFILER
  • Self Contained ADCP – SeaWATCH
  • Vessel Mounted ADCP – SeaTRAK
  • 5th Vertical Beam – SeaWAVE
  • 7 Beam ADCP – SeaSEVEN
  • River Discharge Measurements – RiverQ

SeaPROFILER

ADCP with 4 beams that is intended for direct-reading application where batteries are not needed. Mount this ADCP to a boat, USV, ASV, ROV, AUV or buoy. As long as power is supplied to this ADCP, any application will work. This ADCP can also be used for river discharge measurements using a trimaran or USV.

SeaWATCH

ADCP that includes batteries for a self-contained deployment. This ADCP is the same as the SeaPROFILER except the housing will accommodate 2 alkaline or 1 lithium battery. These ADCP are typically mounted on the seafloor, on a mooring line or on a buoy for extended deployments. Data will be recorded to an internal SD memory card. Data is downloaded with an ethernet connection. Pressure sensors can be optionally included

SeaWAVE

ADCP with 5 beams. This ADCP will include a vertical beam. The vertical beam can be used to measure the significant wave height and period when pointed upward. It can be used as an echo sounder when pointed downward. The vertical beam can also be used to track the ice. Pressure sensor can be optionally included. This ADCP will come with or without a housing for batteries.

Dual Frequency

ADCP with 8 beams. This ADCP can have 2 different frequencies. The first frequency will be four 3″ transducers. The 3″ transducers are intended for the deep water measurements. The second four transducers are 2″ and are intended for shallow water or small bin sizes. This same application can be used on a mooring line for upward and downward looking ADCPs using a single set of electronics. Pressure sensor can be optionally included. This ADCP will come with or without a housing for batteries.

SeaSEVEN

ADCP with 7 beams. This ADCP will have 2 sets of frequencies and a vertical beam. The first frequency will be three 3″ transducers. The 3″ transducers are intended for the deep water measurements. The second three transducers are 2″ and are intended for shallow water or small bin sizes. There is a vertical beam used for waves measurements, as an echo sounder or ice tracker. This is basically a dual frequency SeaWAVES. Pressure sensor can be optionally included. This ADCP will come with or without a housing for batteries.

SeaTRAK

A vessel mounted ADCP. This ADCP can have 4 to 8 beams. This ADCP will include a bronze ring to mount the ADCP to the ship hull and a deckbox to interface the ADCP with the ship’s system.
