VelociMite - Bluetooth SV Probe

VelociMite, the first Sound Velocity probe to use Bluetooth wireless technology continuously transmitting data to a handheld PDA or portable PC.

Anyone involved in Bar-checking or Sound Velocity profiling will be familiar with the problems associated with transferring data from a water based instrument to a computer. The primary problem for directly connected probes is one of large amounts of tangled cable on deck, the secondary problem is the potential to drown the computer while attempting to record or download data in a hostile environment. Slip ring cable spools and self recording probes help avoid these problems but add considerable cost and delays.
