The Simrad ES80 is the fifth generation professional split-beam fish finder for the world wide fishing community.
The latest innovations in computer and signal processing technology are used to create a sophisticated, but also intuitive, echo sounder. It can operate with operational frequencies ranging from 10 to 500 kHz. With a suitable transducer, the ES80 can use frequency sweeps ("chirps") across a range of frequencies.
This screen capture shows the Simrad ES80 set up for a close inspection of fish close to the bottom. A small school is placed in the zoom window. The capture is kindly provided by Aegean Electronics, Greece.
