The AquaCount provides a digital readout for AA and Pygmy current meters, replacing the use of headphones and a stopwatch. The AquaCount not only counts the revolutions, calculates and displays velocity in feet per second or meters per second, but time, revolutions and velocity are all simultaneously displayed on the LCD display. Therefore there is no need to wait until the end of a measurement cycle to record the readings.
The AquaCount can be used with no modification or retrofit of a standard AA or Pygmy current meter. Just plug it into the same connector you have for your headphone and immediately start reading velocity, revolutions and time. The AquaCount can be used with wading rods or cable suspended systems. It uses the same advanced CMOS circuitry as the AquaCalc 5000 which has proven itself in the USGS to be the accepted standard.
With sealed membrane buttons and water resistant sealed circuitry, the AquaCount’s easy to read 32 character LCD displays reading to four significant figures, and it is powered by a 9 VDC battery with power conserving standby circuitry for long battery life.
