Choose your echo sounder

The echosounder is ideal for assessing the seabed topography. This electronic device measures the depth and detects the presence of obstacles.

How echo sounders work

The echosounder can determine a depth by calculating the elapsed time between transmission and echo reception. It emits ultrasounds that are reflected from the bottom or any suspended element (object, fish, seaweed, rocketc.). When a sound wave reaches an obstacle, it bounces back to the probe and turns into an electrical signal. The transducer converts electrical signals into sound waves and vice versa. It can therefore switch from receiver mode to transmitter mode at any time. Then, the echosounder can interpret the electrical pulse and transmit it as an image to the operator. The operating frequency of the sounder represents the number of vibrations per second. It plays a primordial role since it allows to play between the precision and the range of the echo. The lower the frequency, the greater the range.

Depth, speed and temperature

Discover the characteristics of this trifunctional tool. Thanks to its hydrodynamic shape, the turbulences are reduced which generates a precise high-speed reading and clear images. In addition, it incorporates a patented system of improved protection against noise and vibration. You can use it with the 50 KHz or 200 KHz frequency.

This instrument is ideal for accurate and high-resolution surveys in shallow waters. The operating frequency and beam width are easily adjusted to suit the specific probing requirements of each customer. Equipped with “CHIRP” technology, the sounder emits long pulses over a wide frequency band (200 KHz). In addition, it has a very good sensitivity with his low Q of 2. In terms of design, its robust stainless steel housing makes it particularly resistant.
