ship echo sounder
The EA Multi Channel Unit (MCU) is a hydrographic echosounder sweep system specifically designed for use in canals, rivers and other shallow bodies of water. Its precise depth and bottom detection capabilities provide detailed bottom imagery.
This compact, multi-channel echosounder, based on Windows XP® software, can simultaneously monitor both depth and bottom profile. All data is shown in real time using a colour-coded waterfall display which graphically represents areas of common depth using different colours. A minimum depth parameter can also be entered as a visual shallow-water warning (waterfall display data under the specified minimum depth parameter will be colour coded red).
While sweeping, depth data can be simultaneously exported through a network (socket) to third part survey software running on the same computer.
