Simrad PX Universal

Catch monitoring sensor

The Simrad PX Universal is a compact multi purpose wireless catch monitoring sensor. It is designed for use on purse seine nets, but it can also be used on trawl gears.

Versatile Solution for Monitoring

The Simrad PX Universal is provided in three different versions: PX Universal, PX Universal Depth/Temperature (D/T), and PX Universal Catch/Temperature (C/T). The version is defined by the type of sensor lid. The basic version has a neutral lid capable of measuring roll, pitch, height, and battery status. Whereas the most common version, PX Universal D/T, is used on seine nets for measuring depth, sink rate, and height from sea bottom to lead line.

Compatibility and Measurements

To receive information from the sensor, you need a suitable receiver (PI or SR Series), one or more hydrophones, and a computer running the Simrad TV80 or Simrad PI50 programs. All our PI Hydrophones are compatible, and even non-Simrad types can be used, provided the communication frequency matches. The sensor defaults to two measurements, but with a purchased license, you can make up to five measurements simultaneously, including catch, depth, geometry, height, spread, temperature, and battery status.
