ship echo sounder
The EA Multi Channel Unit (MCU) is a hydrographic echo sounder 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 echo sounder, 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.
FOR CANALS, RIVERS AND SHALLOW WATER
In the EA MCU software, the system can control two different frequencies simultaneously, e.g. 15 kHz and 200 kHz. By using two different frequencies, the system will provide both accurate bottom depth and penetration information depend of sediment concentration.
