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.
