ECHOPILOT 3 DIMENSIONAL FORWARD SONAR

This latest development of the well proven patented Echopilot Forward Looking Sonar displays a 3 dimensional representation of the underwater scene ahead of the boat. The seabed terrain and potential hazards are shown, for the first time, with unparalleled realism. This is a real time sonar image of what is actually ahead of the boat, not a chart rendered into 3D.

Twin retractable transducers ensure complete forward coverage whatever the hull form. The view ahead is 60 degrees in the horizontal plane and over 90 degrees in the vertical plane and the forward range is up to 200 metres. The screen updates every 1 to 2 seconds depending on the range setting. Available as a black box the 3D FLS outputs include S and Composite video, VGA and DVI for a full colour picture on a wide range of compatible displays.

Fls Technology, how it works...

OTHER SOUNDERS ARE HISTORY! Most vertical depth sounders show a depth which is an average of what is behind the boat. At EchoPilot we believe that most boat owners would prefer to see hazardous obstructions in front of them!!
