Tritech SeaKing 700 Series Bathymetric and Oceanographic Sensor

Tritech SeaKing 700 Series Bathymetric and Oceanographic Sensor
  • Conductivity and temperature module eliminates the need to take daily "dips"
  • Real time¸ on line monitoring of seawater conductivity and temperature
  • Correct velocity of sound (vos) may be applied in real time to devices such as the SeaKing profiling sonar and the altimeter
  • Corrected temperature and salinity parameters can be passed to the Digiquartz depth sensor
  • Surface barometric pressure sensor is standard in SeaKing Bathometer
  • N/A

The Tritech SeaKing 700 Series comprises of up to four high resolution sensors:
• Tritech PA500 Precision altimeter
• Paroscientific Digiquartz Precision depth sensor
• Falmouth Scientific Conductivity probe
• Falmouth Scientific Temperature probe

There are two standard configurations available:
• SeaKing 701 Bathymetric system comprising depth and altitude sensors
• SeaKing 704 Oceanographic system – as 701 but with temperature and conductivity sensors

Other configurations can be supplied on request.

The units are available in four standard depth ratings:
700, 1400, 2000, 4000 metres

Although the sensors form an integrated package, the altimeter may be mounted separately on the ROV. This allows positioning of the individual sensors away from areas of masking or disturbance such as vehicle structure or thruster wash. Full water column density profiling for the 704 systems is achieved by dynamically modifying a “lookup” table which contains all measured parameters versus depth. This table may be stored by the surveyors and re-loaded as required. Whatever configuration of the bathymetric package is selected, it operates as a single subsea node on the SeaKing SCU data network and shares the same twisted pair wiring as the SeaKing DFP sea-bed profiling sonars and the SeaKing DFS imaging sonar heads. Vehicle integration is very simple as only a single pair of conductors is required on the ROV.
