Model 60 Series

Model 60 Series

The 60 SERIES is a range of high performance, dual-frequency transducers offering a versatile sounding system with high resolution and excellent range performance. The design features both high and low frequencies combined within a single fully moulded housing. Allowing a hydrographer the flexibility to select a system to meet the desired survey requirements of resolution, range, silt penetration and beam pattern. The fully moulded polyurethane housing provides a mechanically robust, corrosion-free transducer for hull or over-side mounting. Transducer impedance can be adjusted to suit the customer's specification. 

The 60 SERIES is available with or without acoustic calibration, traceable to National Standards.
