The Aanderaa In-line ZPulse DCS Doppler Current Sensor is a single point current sensor based on the Doppler Shift principle.
The In-line Doppler Current Sensor (DCS) is the first current sensor with the option to directly connect water quality sensors in a robust, integrated package (version 5810). The sensor replaces the successful DCS4100 in-line current sensor using newer technology with extending capabilities. It is designed for easy integration into systems with Aanderaa or third-party dataloggers. Based on a modified version of the ZPulse Doppler Current Sensor 4520, it connects through a combined mooring and signal cable.
For buoy application, when the buoy creates magnetic interferences with the internal sensor compass, it is possible to use an external compass solution.
