Designed for a seamless workflow. The new SWiFT CTD is the latest in Valeport’s popular range of SWiFT profilers and delivers enhanced accuracy and versatility for those requiring CTD measurements.
Measured CTD with all the benefits of the SWiFT
The new SWiFT CTD profiler provides survey-grade sensor technology coupled with the convenience of Bluetooth® wireless technology, rechargeable battery and an integral GPS module to geo-locate each profile.
Ease of use is at the heart of the SWiFT range and the new SWiFT CTD not only makes any problematic battery changes a thing of the past and delivers fully-automated data transfer with no user input required, it also features Valeport’s signature SWiFT magnetic switch ring. The switching ring is easy to operate even with cold hands, it simply turns through 90 degrees and reassuringly clicks into position. The end cap features user-friendly LED indications for operational status, GPS, battery and Bluetooth® wireless technology.
