Breathe new smart digital life into your old or new transducers, with digital
signal processing technology designed for use with most existing analog
transducers already installed, or new analog transducers.
Actisense's industry proven depth sounder algorithm has the best-in-class seabed
tracking, and used in conjunction with a good quality depth transducer, can
track the seabed down to 0.3m or 1 foot (proven with Airmar transducers). 100W
peak depth power enables a maximum depth range of 100m or 330 feet under optimum
conditions (proven with Airmar transducers).
The DST module’s data interface is configured for NMEA 0183 and RS232, but can
operate as a fully bidirectional RS485 interface for customized applications,
such as a multiple depth sounder network. Log transducer and temperature
thermistor interfaces allow additional data to be provided over the NMEA data
stream, giving a cable saving when those extra measurements are required.
Easy reprogramming of the DST module is possible using free software available
on the Actisense® website. The DST module’s software can be updated with the
very latest software enhancements, or special purpose software such as a
fish-finder/hydrograph software upgrade.
The DST module can be further enhanced with the Actisense® NMEA display software
for Windows™. This software displays the depth, speed, trip distance and
temperature values, and plots a historical graph for each value. Available from
the Actisense® website.
