The SonTek FlowTracker 2 (FT2) handheld Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter (ADV) is a wading discharge measurement instrument that is handheld, portable and precise.
We know our users love and trust the technology with the original FlowTracker, but we wanted more! The FlowTracker2 now comes with functional, modernized features such as Bluetooth, GPS, and a large color screen, to name only a few. The enhancements came directly from the evaluation and feedback from hydrologists, researchers, and scientists who have made the FlowTracker their instrument of choice.
PORTABLE. PRECISE. PRACTICAL.
The real advantage becomes clear from the moment you start to collect data. Each step of the way FT2 guides you along the measurement process with visual prompts and SmartQC audio alerts just in case something important needs your attention. FT2 handheld software is intuitive, easy to navigate, and includes real-time plots of point data, QC parameters, and measurement verticals, giving you everything you need at-a-glance. Get defensible data correctly, the first time, every time, and minimize data handling back at the office.
WHENEVER, AND WHEREVER YOU NEED.
With rugged construction for any climate and multiple display options for both day and night, FT2 goes whenever and wherever you need it to go. This includes:
– Natural Streams, Open Channels & Lakes
– Irrigation Canals
– Mining Channels
– Water Treatment
– Storm Water
– Weirs / Flumes
FT2 uses SonTek’s tried-and-true ADV technology, vetted for decades by experts across the globe, in hydraulics labs, and wide-ranging field environments. Improved and perfected for FT2, the acoustic-based ADV sensor offers unparalleled accuracy, particularly in low flow, and in the shallowest water of any wading device. 2-D data in the horizontal plane (2D/3D option available) allows the most comprehensive QC and understanding of flow conditions. User calibration is never required, and 24/7 tech support from SonTek and our worldwide team is only a call away.
