M9 S5 Multi-Frequency ADCP

SonTek RiverSurveyor® S5 and M9


The patented and award-winning RiverSurveyor®, S5/M9 systems give a new perspective to the notion of measuring open channel hydraulics. Using SonTek's exclusive SmartPulseHD®, multiple acoustic frequencies are fused with precise bandwidth control for the most robust and continuous shallow-to-deep discharge measurements ever.

Aanderaa DCPS 5400 Doppler Current Sensor

Aanderaa Current Sensor

The Aanderaa Doppler Current Sensor (DCS) is a rugged, true vector averaging sensor for measuring current speed and direction in the sea. The sensor has built-in compass and tilt sensor and may also output sea temperature. 

Seaguard RCM

Aanderaa SEAGUARD RCM

The single-point SEAGUARD® RCM series is a completely new generation of current meters based on the SEAGUARD® datalogger platform and the ZPulse® multi-frequency Doppler Current Sensor (DCS). SEAGUARD® Products are based on modern technology and are the basic modules of our underwater observatory. They may be used as a multi-parameter instrument in the sea and in freshwater and feature a modular plug-and-play architecture.

Sontek ADP

SonTek ADP® - Acoustic Doppler Profiler

The SonTek ADP (Acoustic Doppler Profiler) is a proven, capable and versatile, high-performance, 3-axis (3D) water current profiler that is accurate, reliable, and easy to use. 

Argonaut®-XR ADCP

SonTek Argonaut®-XR ADCP

Designed specifically for mounting on the bottom of a river, channel, or harbor, the XR features a special mode that automatically adjusts one of its measurement cells for changing water level. Its small size, rugged build, and flexible system architecture make the XR attractive for both real-time operation and autonomous deployments.

Seaguard II DCP

Aanderaa SeaGuard II DCP

The brand new acoustic profiler joining the SeaGuard family. It features innovative development of the acoustic profiling capacity and an exceptional ability to collect high quality current information on moving and tilting moorings. Available as a self-recording instrument, it also integrates unique real time features to meet your application needs.

Sontek Argonaut-ADV

SonTek Argonaut-ADV Doppler current meter

Providing robust velocity measurements in a compact, easy-to-use package, the SonTek Argonaut-ADV is the ultimate instrument for shallow water flow monitoring. Ideal for low-flow applications in shallow streams, marshes, lakes, or water treatment facilities, the 3-axis (3D) Argonaut-ADV's advanced Doppler technology measures single-point velocity away from flow obstructions.

Seaguard RCM Blue

Aanderaa RCM Blue

The RCM Blue is a self-recording Current Meter which measures water temperature in salt or fresh water, and a battery container with battery capacity up to 70Ah. The Doppler Current Sensor is an upgraded version of the proven SeaGuard ZPulse sensor. The instrument configuration and data retrieval is done via Bluetooth which eliminates the need to open the pressure case for repeated deployments.

M9 S5 Multi-Frequency ADCP

SonTek RiverSurveyor® S5 and M9


The patented and award-winning RiverSurveyor®, S5/M9 systems give a new perspective to the notion of measuring open channel hydraulics. Using SonTek's exclusive SmartPulseHD®, multiple acoustic frequencies are fused with precise bandwidth control for the most robust and continuous shallow-to-deep discharge measurements ever.

rQPOD Modular Remote Survey Boat

rQPOD Modular Remote Survey Boat

Xylem Analytics brings together a number of leading technological brands including SonTek, HYPACK and YSI to provide the world's most innovative hydrographic and bathymetric survey systems.
The rQPOD is a modular system that when attached to a standard size Torrent Board housing both SonTek M9 and S5 RiverSurveyor ADCP systems, transforms into a motorised platform facilitating remote shore operation for easy collection of ADCP data.

WaterCube bathymetry software

WaterCube

Xylem Analytics has joined with WaterCube to provide a natural extension to the capabilities of the SonTek M9 ADCP with the ability to map longitudinal reaches of river section and depict this in a full 'real data' 3D visualisation.  With the SonTek M9 having a dual function of being both a Discharge and Bathymetry tool, the linkage with WaterCube is allowing our customer base to maximize the use of this very powerful asset.
