Valeport Release New SWiFT SVP - 13/07/2015


Following a successful showing at Ocean Business, Valeport has now released the latest addition to its portfolio of sound velocity sensors and profilers, the SWiFT SVP. This compact unit features according to Valeport high accuracy sound velocity, pressure, temperature, salinity and density measurement, plus integral GPS, re-chargeable battery and LED status indications for GPS, battery and communications.

The SWiFT SVP has been designed from the outset with the intention of a seamless workflow, and has integral GPS to geo-locate every profile.

Using the ‘twist and go’ switch on the unit, data can be easily and quickly downloaded, reviewed and translated to common SVP formats wirelessly via Bluetooth Smart, which uses the SWiFT APP on iOS devices where data can be instantly shared via FTP, email and cloud services. Valeport’s standard DataLogX2 software for PC use will also support the SWiFT SVP.

With a battery endurance of up to a week and easy charging via USB, the SWiFT SVP is intended for coastal, harbour and inland hydrographic survey use.

The SWiFT is aimed at the shallow water market and it’s constructed from Titanium to provide durability. The device has been designed for easy handling weighing in at 2kg.
