SonTek-SL3000 (3G)

Great Things Come In Small Packages

The industries smallest, most lightweight and affordable side-looking Doppler profiler. The SL3000 (3G) is capable of small volumes and narrow channel dimensions as small as 0.5m (1.6ft). Get the highest resolution possible of any side-looking Doppler profiler with cell sizes of 4cm. No matter how tight the space, expect to collect precise data close to riverbanks, walls, and other structures.

Designed specifically for side mounting on bridges, canal walls, or riverbanks, the SL’s SLEEK low-profile housing makes installation easy. With three models to choose from, the SL can be used in channels as small as you can jump across to rivers as wide as the Amazon.

Ultra narrow beam widths combined with unmatched side lobe suppression provide the SUPERIOR acoustic directivity necessary for achieving maximum horizontal range free of interference from surface or bottom boundaries.
