cNODE Explorer - Transponder
The cNODE® Explorer 17 transponder is well suited for installation on AUVs. The remote transducer can be installed in a suitable position on the vehicle.
cNODE® Explorer is a compact transponder and fully compatible with HiPAP® and cPAP® low-frequency underwater positioning systems.
The unit will operate as any standard cNODE® transponder and can be used with Cymbal wideband or FSK signaling. It offers telemetry capability, where the transmit power level or channel can be changed acoustically.
Together with HiPAP 102 the low frequency transponder offers acoustic ranges of up to 10-14 km, depending on transducer type, installation and acoustic conditions.
