Hornet Cableway Systems PLUS

The Hornet Plus  has been developed to perform river and stream discharge measurements from fixed cableways using an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) OR mechanical type current meter. The Hornet is an ideal solution for retro fitting to an existing manned cableway system, thus minimising the personal injury risk associated with this type of gauging.
