Sonardyne has unveiled its Origin Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) with the claim that the Origin 600 stands out as the first ADCP to integrate an acoustic modem and advanced onboard edge processing.

This enables remote access to all core features and delivers high-quality, intelligent data in near real-time.

The device also introduces new and exclusive high-fidelity data formats, while its capability to connect with external sensors maximises the potential of a single device deployment and the generated data.

As part of the launch, RS Aqua has been appointed as the exclusive UK reseller for the new Origin 600 ADCP.

Origin 600 offers users expanded capabilities and a range of operational advantages, including enhanced flexibility and data reliability.

Michelle Barnett, Ocean Science business development manager at Sonardyne said: “The Origin 600 marks a huge step forward in ADCP technology, providing the user with expanded ADCP capability, while presenting a number of operational possibilities and advantages, including in-field flexibility and data assurance. We welcome RS Aqua as the UK reseller of Origin 600 and know the product will benefit their customers and business portfolio for years to come.”

RS Aqua, based in Portsmouth, brings more than 40 years of expertise in supporting the UK marine industry. Its extensive knowledge and experience across various sectors makes it an ideal choice as a Sonardyne reseller.

RS Aqua can now offer our clients access to the latest Origin ADCP technology, which we have carefully selected to be part of our product portfolio.
