Synchronization unit

Advanced echosounder synchronization unit

Running systems simultaneously

Performing a survey operation with more than one echo sounder presents a challenge. It is well known that running several acoustic systems simultaneously can cause interference between the systems, which may reduce the data quality. Interference between different acoustic devices and instruments can be a severe problem for ships with several acoustic instruments operating simultaneously. The effect of such interference will vary according to the configuration, from slight disturbances to complete malfunctioning. The KONGSBERG synchronizing unit, K-SYNC is designed to solve these problems by proper timing of the instruments and by controlling the triggering of each instrument's transmission.

Works across your entire echo sounder portfolio

Kongsberg K-Sync works across the range of KONGSBERG products, but also supports echo sounders from other suppliers ensuring synchronization across your entire echo sounder portfolio. The system is interfaced easily to many different acoustic systems and the operation is through a simple but efficient user interface with a real time graphic display that visualizes the sequencing.
