Introducing Simrad's PX Family

The Simrad PX Family is series of multifunctional catch monitoring sensors that use state-of-the-art software, electronics and batteries.

The catch monitoring sensors provide modern and cost-effective tools for catch control. Each can, by default, make two measurements, and you decide which measurements each sensor shall do. By adding a software license, the sensors can make additional measurements.

Each PX sensor is multifunctional. This means that the tasks you previously needed several different gear monitoring sensors to do can now be done using one single sensor. Each PX sensor — alone or with others — can do all the tasks you previously needed various PI and PS sensors for.


Each PX sensor can easily be configured by connecting it to a computer and running the PX Configurator program.


You must charge the PX sensor batteries between operations. Each sensor is equipped with a custom-made Li-Ion battery package. With this battery, the sensor offers significantly longer operation than previous generations of Simrad sensors.

The sensor is charged using the Simrad PX Multisensor Charger. This charger has a special plug that prevents shortcuts or incorrect connections. Charging is fully automatic, and the charging current is limited when the sensor is fully charged to ensure long battery life.

Recommended charging temperature is between +5 and +45°C (+41 to +113°F).

Gear monitoring software

The Simrad TV80 gear monitoring software is the latest and most complete solution to show you all the information about your current fishing operation. The Simrad TV80's flexible and intuitive design allows you to detect any changes or trends in the relevant data from the fishing gear and gear monitoring sensors. A quick look at the screen is enough. Several different presentation modes are available for data presentation in the TV80. With a large display, all modes can be viewed simultaneously or with a dual-screen configuration for more information handling. The presentation of sensor data is organized in different views, allowing a maximum of four views simultaneously. These can be customized according to operational requirements or personal preferences.
