Versatile applications: Bridges or cable crane systems are not always available for ADCP measurements. The motorised Q-Boat 1250 with remote control function bridges this gap and places the survey team in the position to carry out highly efficient flow measurements at almost any location.

Easy handling: The lightweight and collapsible sliding crossbar boat enables an easy handling and an uncomplicated transportation to and from the measuring site.

Measuring without risk: Work safety first! Often there is a high risk of injury or death, as in manned boat trips. The Q-Boat 1250 constitutes an interesting option here and allows flow measurements even and especially in the border area.

Optimised: The Q-Boat 1250 offers enough space to accommodate the ADCP sensor (optional StreamPro, RiverPro, RiverRay) and other components, such as a GPS smart antenna.
