Ideal for small vessels and shallow water, MVP30 is an electrically powered system that profiles to 30 m at 12 knots. With enough cable to profile to 125 m when the vessel is stationary, MVP30-350 provides extra cable profile deeper as shown in the table below.
The free fall tow body, often referred to as the “fish,” houses the profiling instrumentation. While the tow body most frequently contains an SVPT or CTD as shown below, the available varieties can accommodate nearly any instrumentation, regardless of parameters or manufacturer.
MVP•X is an externally powered, real-time multiparameter instrument designed specifically for the Moving Vessel Profiler. MVP•X takes full advantage of Xchange sensors’ modularity: Leave MVP•X installed and just swap out sensors.
There are two versions available, each optimized for the highest data quality for its specific parameters.
