Description

The EM 2040 multibeam echo sounder is the first system to bring all the advanced features of deep water multibeams to the near bottom sounding environment. The basic EM 2040 has four units, a transmit transducer, a receive transducer, a processing unit, and a workstation.

  • Distinguishable features
    The EM 2040 is the first true wideband system with operating frequencies from 200 to 400 kHz and includes neccessary features like dual swath, FM chirp as transmitt pulse for long range, All transducers are standard pressure rated to 6000m. The system is the ideal tool for ROV, AUV and any vessel of opportunity. The acoustic beams of EM 2040 are stabilized for yaw, pitch and roll (not just compensated). This gives a much more regular sampling of the bottom and a higher confidence for detection of small objects/features while the vessel is yawing, rolling and pitching.Data from the water volume which is ensonified by the system is available in real time on a display + stored digitally.
