Overview
The Valeport MIDAS SVP is the most accurate Sound Velocity Profiler in the world. As well as using Valeport’s digital time of flight sound velocity sensor, it now comes as standard with a 0.01% pressure sensor. Every detail from the sensor accuracy through the titanium construction to the large memory and choice of communications methods has been considered - we truly believe it to be the ultimate
SVP.

Data
The MIDAS SVP is fitted with 16 Mb solid state non-volatile FLASH memory. Total capacity depends on sampling mode; continuous & burst modes have a single time stamp at the start of the file, trip mode (profiling) stores a time stamp with each reading. A single line of SVP data uses 8 bytes, and a time stamp uses 7 bytes.

Continuous: >2,000,000 data points
Profile: >1,000,000 data points (>100 profiles to 6000 m)
