Overview

Product Features
  • Vertical acoustic beam
    Superior channel definition for the most accurate channel cross-sectional area, for discharge applications. Measures the depth directly under the system and extends maximum discharge depth if bottom-tracking is out of range.
  • SmartPulse+®
    An intelligent algorithm utilizing Pulse-coherent and Broadband acoustic profiling that automatically adjusts based on conditions. Reliable bottom tracking and velocity profiling through a wide range of conditions and shallower than ever before. Visualize velocity data like never before with cell sizes down to 2.5 cm.
  • 360º compass and two-axis tilt sensor
    An intelligent algorithm utilizing Pulse-coherent and Broadband acoustic profiling that automatically adjusts based on conditions. Reliable bottom tracking and velocity profiling through a wide range of conditions and shallower than ever before. Visualize velocity data like never before with cell sizes down to 2.5 cm.

  • Bottom-tracking
    Acoustically track vessel speed over ground independent of DGNSS. Also supplies secondary depth measurement.

  • RTK GPS (Coming Soon!)
    Ultra precise positioning as an alternative to bottom tracking in moving bed or other difficult situations.

  • DGNSS (Option)
    Integrated DGNSS smart antenna for position as a backup or alternative to bottom tracking in moving bed or other difficult conditions. Geolocate each sample (or ensemble) during measurement. Utilizes multiple constellations for increased global precision (GPS, SBAS, GLONASS, BeiDou, GALILEO, QZSS).

The SonTek RS5 is the latest addition to the award-winning RiverSurveyor® family of discharge instruments.
