Redback RB1 Type Current Meter

The Red Back current meter is our new generation cup-type current meter. It allows the measurement of water flow in streams, open canals, pressure pipes, lakes and seas to a fine degree of accuracy and repeatability, this is due to its advanced contact switching system and interchangeable bucket system that provides trouble free operation.
