Sontek Releases New “Flowtracker2” Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter


flowtracker.jpgThe Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter (ADV) is considered a flagship advancement in the evolution of water flow and discharge data collection instrumentation. Over the years, the ADV has become an integral tool for government water agencies and environmental monitoring organizations around the world that need to measure the amount and speed of water in flowing in rivers, streams and canals.

With advances in technology and general application know-how contributed by world-renowned hydrologists, researchers and scientists, SonTek is pleased to unveil a new (yet familiar) wading discharge instrument – the FlowTracker2!

The FlowTracker2 has all of the featrures users have grown to know and trust with the original FlowTracker, but now includes modern, user-friendly, and intuitive new features that optimize the data collection process, yet continue to provide users the unparalleled data accuracy – particularly in shallow water environments. Some of these include:

  • SonTek's proprietary "SmartQC" ensures users know when a quality problem could exist, saving data (and time!);
  • Improved ADV acoustics: faster pinging, lower noise and better standard error;
  • Sophisticated and easy to create tables and time series graphs for sophisticated, professional reporting;
  • Bluetooth or direct USB interface with PC;
  • And much more!

"As the need for flow monitoring grows, so will our commitment to providing cutting-edge technology that provides data to those who make important decisions about the health and safety of our global communities" said Hakan Erdem, SonTek General Manager. "We're proud leaders in developing trusted, top-tier instrumentation for our customers and we will continue to do so going forward."

The FlowTracker2 will be used in the areas of streamflow monitoring, irrigation planning, community growth and sustainability, flood modelling and response, and more.
