The SeaGuardII DCP Wave is a 600kHz Doppler Current Profiler able to measure directional wave parameters and currents from a bottom mounted installation. The Acoustic Wave software 5759 used by the DCPS implements unique features to improve the wave measurement accuracy by optimizing the signal to noise ratio.
Maximum deployment depth is 40m in normal scatter conditions.
Available as a self recording instrument, it is easily integrable into real-time system offering reliable two way communication.
Redundant wave measurement for QA/QC can be implemented by adding the wave and tide sensor 5218.
