Krupp Atlas Introduces New Echosounders

Krupp Atlas Elektronik has extended its established range of DESO high-precision survey echo sounders with the introduction of new DESO 21 and DESO 22 models.

Derived from the DESO 20, in service worldwide with leading survey organizations and port authorities, both feature built-in annotator and serial data interface facilities.

DESO 21 is a low-cost single channel unit which can be fitted with any Krupp Atlas Elektronik transducer within a frequency range extending from 33 kHz to 210 kHz.

Its price has been considerably reduced, making it suitable for those users who require a high quality echo sounder but whose budgets are otherwise limited.

DESO 22 is a dual channel version designed for both shallow and deepwater applications. In addition to providing accurate depth data, it can also be used for acquisition of reliable information on bottom structures such as sediments, layers and wrecks. As with DESO 21, it can be deployed either as a portable sounder on small-size vessels or as part of fully integrated survey sys- tems aboard larger craft.

Introduction of the new DESO 21 and 22 models complements Krupp Atlas Elektronik's present range of high-precision survey echo sounders, including the DESO 25 system designed for optimum performance over selectable measuring ranges down to 15,000 m.
