Simrad SH80 Features and functionality

Features and functionality
The Simrad SH40 Fish Finding Sonar provides you with an impressive range of advanced operational features and functions.

Multiple operational frequencies

On any fishing vessel you have numerous sources for noise, such as propellers, generators, engines and other hydroacoustic equipment. With the multiple frequency operation provided by the Simrad SH40, you will still be able to tune your sonar for maximum performance in order to avoid interference from own and other vessels. The multiple frequency operation comes very handy in other situations as well; high and low frequencies have different detection ranges on different conditions and species. On the Simrad SH40 sonar, you can change the operational frequency from 110 to 122 kHz in 1 kHz steps.

Beam stabilisation

When the beam stabilisation is activated, both the horizontal and vertical beams will be electronically stabilised for the vessel's roll and pitch movements. This allows the full circle sonar beam to stay on the target independent of the vessel movements, even in rough seas. You will always maintain a clear picture of the targets.


Dual beamDual beam

The combination of the horizontal and vertical beams displays the school of fish from above and from the side at the same time. It is not necessary to go over the target to see the vertical distribution on the echo sounder.

Full screen presentation

In full screen presentation, the echo presentation will be extended to cover the entire display area. You can also hide the menu if you don't need it.

Off center presentation

Offset the vessel to any screen position and enlarge the echoes for more detailed information. In this example, the menu has been hidden from view.

dual mode

In the dual mode, we provide you with "two sonars in one". Each sonar picture can be set up as if you had two different sonars working simultanously. Individual frequencies, tilt angles, ranges, gain and filters can be used. In this example, the menu has been hidden from view.

User settings

In many cases, the sonar on the bridge has several users. Each user has often his or her own favourite settings. On the Simrad SH40 sonar, you can save these settings using your own name, and retrieve them whenever you take charge of the sonar operations. This saves you valuable time as your favourite colours, settings and parameters are only a few "clicks" away.

Store and recall sonar images

All Simrad sonars include a Store/Recall function. You can choose to save either single sonar images or sequences during a normal sonar search. Later, you can easily play the images back on the sonar display if you wish to study the sonar data in more detail.
