The RiverRay is designed to measure real-time current
profiles from temporary or permanent mounting in a vessel. The RiverRay system
consists of a RiverRay ADCP, float, cables, and software. The input power
requirements for the RiverRay are +12 VDC. The RiverRay system requires the
addition of a Windows® compatible computer to collect data.
The transducer assembly contains the transducer ceramics and
electronics. The standard acoustic frequencyis 600 kHz. The RiverRay is
intended to be operated as a surface mounted system only. No depth rating is
provided. The float is designed to maintain the transducer at a constant depth in
the water with minimal water flow disturbance.
