UB-Flow : The high resolution profiler for open channels
The UB-Flow profiler is designed for optimal 2D velocity vector profile measurements in industrial and natural flows.
UB-flow is a fully self-contained hydrodynamic probe equipped with two wideband transducers. Precise and accurate velocity profiles are measured along the acoustic beams with an unparalleled spatial resolution (down to 3 mm). UB-flow uses Ubertone's Proprietary Technology, based on coded pulsed coherent Doppler, to deliver high quality measurements. With its architecture and capabilities, the UB-Flow stands in between ADCP (Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers) and UVP (Ultrasonic Velocity Profilers) instruments families.
Furthermore, it breaks new ground by giving access to acoustic turbidity through the backscattered ultrasonic energy (or echo) by the suspended particles. This is used to monitor the suspended sediment load within a few meters depth.
An option dedicated to scientific research allow fast measurements up to 100 profiles per second. Following the user's setup, the device switches alternatively from one transducer to the other. At each switch, the instrument provides a set of space-time matrix including velocity, SNR and echo data measured on the given transducer. Thus, the UB-Flow provides new opportunities of achieving excellence in this field.
The UB-flow uses Ethernet communication to deliver an embedded Web interface. This ergonomic interface allows the user to set up, observe instantaneous data and record in the internal logger.
