DT800 Smart™ Sensor
Depth and Temperature
The DT800 utilizes Airmar’s proven Tilted Element™ and broadband
technologies in this thru-hull depth and temperature Smart™ Sensor.
The DT800 is a low-profile, retractable, thru-hull sensor that computes accurate
depth and temperature data and sends it to any NMEA 0183 or NMEA2000®
display or network. Airmar's Smart™ Sensors have embedded
microelectronics—the transducer element and signal processor are only
millimeters apart. The signal from the depth transducer is processed right
inside the sensor itself. All that is needed to receive depth and temperature
data is a single cable into a compatible network or display.
The ceramic is tilted inside the housing, which compensates for hull deadrise
and orients the transducer beam straight down, resulting in strong bottom echo
returns and accurate depth readings. It is sold with a choice of rugged
housings—plastic, bronze, or stainless steel—to accommodate any vessel type or
hull material. These low-profile housings do not affect hull performance and
will provide accurate readings at high speeds. The retractable housing with a
self-closing valve reduces water flow into the vessel when the transducer is
removed for cleaning.
