Portable hydrophone for temporary use.
A portable hydrophone is available. This is a useful device if you wish to use your PI system right away without docking for hydrophone installation.
You can connect the plug directly to the hydrophone connector on the rear side of the PI operator unit or receiver, and lower the hydrophone over the rail.
The portable hydrophone is thus designed as a temporary measure until a fixed hydrophone can be installed at the vessel’s next planned dry docking.
It has an omnidirectional beam and a 50 meter integrated cable.
The cable is sheathed in polyurethane providing robust external protection to compliment its 150 kg tensile strength. The cable is supplied on a reel for convenient retrieval and stowage, and is equipped with a plug for easy attachment to the catch monitoring system's receiver.
