The Simrad PX MultiSensor provides a combination of two readings.
It can be used to measure Pitch, Roll, Spread, Height, Depth or Geometry
– it all depends on which type of PX MultiSensor you have chosen.
The Simrad PX MultiSensor is available in two different types:
The two names indicate the physical location of the application
transducers. On the Down & Side (DS) sensor, these point sideways
and downwards. On the Down & Front (DF) sensor, these point forward
and downwards. Both sensor types hold the forward looking transducer to
provide the communication with the PI system on your vessel.
Each of the two sensor types (DS and DF) can be delivered
with dedicated sensor lids. These lids provide you with the means
to measure depth, temperature and catch.
The Simrad PX MultiSensor can be programmed to suit your need
at the time of use. One PX MultiSensor can thus replace several traditional
PI or PS sensors. All you need to program the sensor is a computer,
a free application that you can download from this website, and a
dedicated programming cable.
The Simrad PX MultiSensor is equipped with a custom made Li-Ion
battery package and a new charger. With this battery, the PX MultiSensor
offers significantly longer operation when compared with previous
generation Simrad sensors.
