Observatory reference: NEMO-SN1[2014-****]

Standard: NEMO-SN1

The MAVS Current Meteris a true 3 axis Acoustic Current Meter
which employs a differential travel time measurement technique. The
current meter takes measurements across 4 acoustic axes to provide a
true vector averaged velocity measurement. Programmable burst mode
and triggered sampling provide the most flexible current meter

The combination of small sensor geometry and differential travel time technique provide unsurpassed resolution and accuracy. The small transducer size significantly reduces the disturbance to water flow.While the standard range of measurement is 200 cm/sec, low speed measurement accuracy in the 0.03 cm/sec to 10 cm/sec range is preserved.
