Product Name:Vector
Description:3D current meter that collects high-resolution velocity and pressure data in rapidly changing environments. Power management and miniaturized electronics combine in a compact single-canister design that is suitable for real-time operation or self-contained deployments. The Vector is suitable for real-time or self-contained deployment, and supports both continuous and burst sampling.
