A real-time video feed from the
trawl has long been desired by fishermen and researchers alike. Cabling
and slip-rings have been the issue. One of the primary design criteria
of the Simrad FX80/DFS75 system was to make it work on existing 3rd
wire cables. We have achieved this goal using copper core coax cables.
The use of existing copper core coax cables eases the cost and reduces
the installation time.
The Simrad DFS75 Trawl sonar is integrated
into the Simrad FX80 system to establish an efficient and accurate
monitoring system for your gear and your catch. The combination of
the high resolution images from the trawl sonar and the live video
feed provides you with an unparalleled opportunity to identify and
analyse both trawl movements and fish behaviour.
Simrad FX80/DFS75 system – with live video and high resolution
sonar – is controlled from a standard Processor Unit provided
by Simrad. It is small, but yet powerful, and contains no moving parts.
The system design will allows you to use two displays. Many users
prefer this configuration, as it allows them to use one display system
for the trawl sonar presentations, and another for the live video
