Equipment & Technology - June 1, 2012

| More

Simrad, a division of Kongsberg Maritime, has expanded its echo sounder portfolio with the introduction of the new multi-transceiver Simrad EK15.

With the ability to connect up to 15 fixed or mobile transceivers by cable or over a wireless network, the EK15 is suitable for a wide range of applications from fish stock assessment and fish protection to river surveys, environmental monitoring and offshore oil and gas operations.

The EK15 is based on a small and ruggedised single beam transceiver and a dedicated transducer. The operational frequency is 200 kHz, which ensures very high resolution and accuracy.

By using multiple transceivers in parallel with either simultaneous or sequential pinging it is possible to monitor large areas with only a single echo sounder system.

The system can be put to use in a wide variety of environments: lakes, fjords, harbours, shallow marine, rivers, and in aquaculture fish cages for continuous monitoring of fish behaviour, vertical distribution of fish, fish escape, food waste and environment.

Due to its small size and low power consumption the EK15 is well suited for installation on gliders, AUVs and ROVs.
