New ES80 with C-All Combined 38,70,120,200 kHz Single Beam Transducer

We are pleased to announce new frequencies and transducer options in the ES80 fish finder series with the new C-All Composite Single Beam Transducer and Wide Band Transceiver (WBT)
This new Single Beam Transducer with 38,70,120,200 kHz frequencies provides a powerful fish finder that allows vessels to fish for multiple species, in varying water depths with a single transducer installation.
FM frequency modulation allows CHIRP functionality on all frequencies to improve target resolution and separation from bottom, and improve single fish detection, and detection of scattered layers of fish close to the bottom and in mid water

SIMRAD C-All transducer dimensions 



The FM frequency ranges are as follows











The ES80 software allows multiple presentations of all frequencies on the one monitor as shown in the image below. This makes for excellent comparison of resolution, detection and performance between the different frequencies giving the Captain a tool that can easily identify the best frequency for target species, detection of feed layers, and seabed characteristics.

FV Caroline 1 Installation of SIMRAD SX95 OMNI Directional sonar

ATL have recently supplied a SIMRAD SX95 OMNI Directional Sonar to the Purse Seiner FV Caroline 1.

Graham Barker headed up the installation team, travelling to Pohnpei in Micronesia and working with the vessels shore based engineering team and crew. A smooth and successful installation was achieved. The latest version of the SX95 introduces new software running now on Windows 10, and a new Joystick controller that gives seamless control of the cursor and menu settings. Many new features are introduced to the SX90 series sonar with the latest software that makes for a powerful long range tuna sonar, with excellent target resolution and fish detection.

The same vessel will also have a new model SY50 OMNI sonar installed later in the year when released to the market. This will operate on 57 kHz and be used in tandem with the SX95 for closer range tracking of tuna.

News from SIMRAD Wireless Catch Monitoring:

The PXMK2 family of wireless sensors has been expanded to now include individual sensors capable of displaying multiple measurements per sensor, which provides significant more information from one sensor, where previously up to 2 sensors were required.
Measurements for Door Spread, Door Height from bottom, Depth of Door from surface, Pitch and/or Roll can easily be programmed into the sensor.
