Altitude above sea floor
Integration with Micron sensors
The LBV can be fitted with the Tritech Micron Echo sounder which provides a constant display of distance from the sea floor. Particularly useful when conducting transect surveys that require a constant height above the sea floor. The Micron Echo sounder can be used standalone or daisy chained with other Micron sensors.
When fitted the Micron Echo sounder sits tucked away under the LBV on the crossbar support. Out of danger, yet clear view to the seafloor.The Micron Echo sounder is integrated in one of two ways.
Standalone - cable penetrates into the LBV side camera housing and is tied into the electronics for transmission to the surface.
Daisy chain - a link cable connects the Micron Echo sounder to another Micron sensor fitted that in turn sends the data to the surface through the LBV electronics.
Provided with the Micron Echo sounder is the easy to use software. If connected standalone a graphical display shows altitude current and historical. When combined with other Micron sensors the display becomes part of the software suite which can be configured to user preference.
Note: if fitted with the Micron Nav positioning system the display becomes a numerical value at the top of the screen.
