Literature Available On Simrad's Latest Digital Echosounders

Two new digital, recording navigation e c h o s o u n d e r s are announced by Simrad, Inc., Armonk, N.Y. The ED 161 and ED 162 recording echosounders not only meet IMCO recommendations for merchant vessels but also display depth digitally. In addition, both include audible depth alarms.

The ED 161 has four recording ranges of 0-25, 0-250, 150-400, and 300-550 fathoms, utilizes a 50 or 70 kHz transducer, and the alarm can be set to any depth down to 500 fathoms. The ED 162 has three special shallowwater ranges for safe operation in rivers, channels, and harbors.

It uses a 200 kHz transducer and has 0-30, 0-75, and 0-150 foot recording ranges, plus a 0-1,500 foot deep range. Its alarm can be set to any depth down to 1,500 feet.

Both e c h o s o u n d e r s use 6-inch chart paper, operate on 11-48 volts dc, and have 250 watts minimum of transmitting output power.

Models are also available for 220-volt ac or 110-volt dc use.
