Valeport's Upgraded SWiFT SVP Will Operate Down to 500 Metres - 09/08/2019

Valeport, a UK-based manufacturer of oceanographic and hydrographic instrumentation, has upgraded its SWiFT SVP. This sound speed profiler now provides enhanced versatility and deployment. An improved depth rating and increased pressure accuracy will become standard on the SWiFT profiler. Following customer feedback, Valeport has introduced this evolution of the SWiFT profiler which is designed with the intention of a seamless workflow at its core, and delivers high accuracy sound velocity, pressure, temperature, salinity and density measurement coupled with the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity, rechargeable battery and an integral GPS module to geo-locate each profile.

Increased Profiler’s Pressure Accuracy

The improved SWiFT will now operate down to 500m as standard (previous depth rating was 200m), whilst retaining all its popular switching on/off action, LED status indication and Bluetooth communication features.  Valeport has also increased the profiler’s pressure accuracy from 0.5% to 0.01% fitting only one 50bar pressure transducer.
