EdgeTech has increased the standard depth rating to 3,000 meters on all new 2050 combined tri-frequency side scan sonar and high resolution sub-bottom profiling sonar systems.
The company is a leader in high resolution sonar imaging systems and underwater technology.
The 2050-DSS is a tri-frequency side scan sonar system with which any two operator selectable frequencies can be operated simultaneously. The system can be provided with either a 120, 410 & 850 kHz towfish, or a 230, 540 & 850 kHz towfish.
Additionally, both towfish options are equipped with a 2-16 kHz sub-bottom profiler, that utilizes a PVDF panel receive hydrophone.
The 2050-DSS comes complete with a combined towfish, digital telemetry that runs over a single coaxial cable, a 19-inch rack mount topside interface, and EdgeTech’s DISCOVER acquisition software. The 2050-DSS can be integrated with several auxiliary sensors such as magnetometer and USBL responder.
Additionally, an interface is fitted to the electronics so that the electronics and sensors can be mounted onto an ROV. The 2050-DSS is ideal for applications such as cable and pipeline surveys, marine construction surveys, pre and post dredging surveys and more.
The new increased depth rating enables an even larger scope of applications particularly in relation to the use of the systems on ROVs.
