MiniProfiler MP4/8 System

Complete system for shallow water microprofiling studies with 4 or 8 channels

The MiniProfiler MP4/8 System is a portable system for shallow water field measurements of microprofiles of for example O2, pH, H2S, N2O, H2, Redox and resistivity. The MiniProfiler MP4/8 System can be submerged to a depth of 300 m, optionally 6,000 m, and runs completely autonomously. Read more...

Your profiling system

The MiniProfiler MP4/8 System can be adapted to a deep sea profiler rated to 6,000 m depth to be handled by an ROV (Remotely Operated underwater Vehicle). If you need an autonomous deep version, please visit our DeepSea Profiler.

Furthermore, the number of channels can be increased to 8, battery time can extended, and the motor system can be upgraded from the standard 1D profiling to a 2D profiling system. The Field DataLogger platform allows for communication and synchronization of data from multiple external devices, such as including optodes, CTD's, and light sensor. Combined with the wide selection of sensors and electrodes from Unisense, you can build a system for your specific research needs or adapt the system as your research evolves.
