PI Purse seine hydrophone

As the name implies the Simrad PI Purse Seine hydrophone is designed for use by purse seiners.

The purpose of the hydrophone is to provide the best possible communication with the wireless sensors located on your purse or danish seine.


You can use one or two hydrophones pointing towards the net. Both are hull-mounted.

The hydrophone has a 90 degrees horizontal beam and a 30 degrees vertical beam. This provides the catch monitoring system with optimal reception from the wireless sensors on a purse seine.

The beam pattern is especially suited for purse seining. The wide coverage area reduces the need for careful alignment.
