Valeport for Underwater Measuring Equipment

An Industry Standard

Valeport have long been associated with providing reliable products for survey operations offshore.  From CTD’s in the early eighties to the well established Midas SVX2, we continue to meet customer requirements.  For sound velocity data to enhance your single or multi-beam echo sounder surveys, Valeport offer a variety of sensors and profilers.  The superior performance is recognised by all multi-beam manufacturers and users making the Valeport sensor an “industry favourite” in the field.  Latest developments include the Rapid SV profiler which has been developed for the fast collection of Sound Velocity Profiles (SVP) without compromising the quality of data. 


Tidal Changes

Valeport’s tide gauge range has now been enhanced by the addition of the new VRS-20 Radar Level Sensor.  The VRS-20 is a pulsed k-band radar level sensor developed by Valeport to work seamlessly with the Valeport TideMaster, operate standalone with optional integrated GPRS telemetry to internet, or interface directly to a third party datalogger or PC.  Versatile and simple to install, the VRS-20 addresses a number of the issues traditionally associated with level measurement.

Non-contact technology removes the installation, corrosion & fouling issues of submerged sensors, while simplifying datum control.   Accuracy and performance are unaffected by changes in water density and atmospheric conditions.  A shore based or fixed structure deployment like the TideMaster can now use the radar sensor for non-contact measurement and additional Met sensors to provide quality data in real time.


Bathymetric Solutions

The new VA500 altimeter delivers a new approach to the problem of underwater positioning.  State of the art signal processing offers unrivalled range and performance from a 500kHz transducer. Millimetre precision, 0.1m – 100m range, RS232/RS485/0-5V & 0-10V analogue outputs with a wide range power supply address the needs of the ROV, AUV and Hydrographic community in a compact, robust package. The option of integrating a high accuracy pressure sensor (0.01%) as used in the MiniIPS offers an unbeatable package for your underwater positioning requirements, especially if combined with the Midas Bathypack


“Valeport have been serving the industry since 1969 by meeting and exceeding our customer expectations” states Kevin Edwards, Sales & Marketing Manager “and this is what drives us”.  “Our 12 month perpetual service warranty is typical of this and proving to be a winner.  A recent £2.3M investment into a new production facility, coupled with  ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditation will give added strength to Valeport’s customer service and the policy of continuous product development.  Our aim is to continue this high level of innovation and support”.
