This micro-miniature altimeter echo sounder was designed for
use in small AUV’s, but don’t think just because its small in size that its not packed with everything you would expect from standard altimeter packages and more! With a maximum range of 100 meters and a 300 meter depth rating the Sea Scan Echo is ready to go. Its shielded design and filtering capability minimize noise effect to maximize system performance. Shipped fully terminated and tested to ready to run out of the box. The Sea Scan Echo communicates with the host computer over an RS-232 serial connection in NMEA 0183 format using standard ASCII Characters. In Auto Trigger mode the Sea Scan Echo can operate independently from its host system or you can allow it to sync with your sonar. The sonar will then wait for the Sync input and ping rate timer to initiate data collection at rates up to 5 Hertz.
