Needle hydrophones range

Our high-performance needle hydrophone system consists of a range of interchangeable PVdF needle hydrophone probes, a submersible wide-band amplifier and a DC coupler.

The needle probes are available in a range of diameters from 0.04 mm to 4 mm, with film thickness ranging from 9 µm to 28 µm. Custom versions of hydrophones are available, such as right angle or side facing versions. Please contact us to discuss any special requirements you have.

The submersible preamplifier and DC coupler are required for all systems.

Learn more about how to choose a hydrophone in our tutorials.

Please contact us using the Hydrophone selection questionnaire below to discuss your needs.

Submersible preamplifier

The submersible preamplifier is an essential part of the hydrophone signal as it buffers the signal and provides a 50 Ω source. It connects either directly to an interchangeable probe (‘HP’ series), or, if required, via a 20 dB in-line attenuator (A20/1).
