Sonardyne International RT 6-3000

Acoustic Release Transponder

The Release Transponder 6 (RT 6-3000) is a tough, reliable acoustic release transponder designed for a wide variety of subsea applications. It has full 6G capabilities, meaning that it can be tracked and released using all Ranger 2 6G USBL systems or a deck unit with remote dunking transducer. The maximum slant range for operation is dependent on the noise environment and topside used; however, ranges to 4,500 metres should normally be achievable.
