Simrad EY60 Portable scientific echo sounder

Applications

The Simrad EY60 portable scientific echo sounder is ideal for both fixed and mobile configurations.

A typical mobile survey will involve both vertical and horizontal orientation of the acoustic beam to be able to monitor fish distribution in the whole water column. Monitoring fish migration in rivers normally involves one transducer with the acoustic beam pointing horizontally from one the other side of the river.

Reflection of sidelobes from the surface and the bottom is a common problem in shallow waters, especially during horizontal beaming.

The new composite transducer series (70, 120, 200 kHz) are beneficial in shallow water environments due to its low sidelobes. Alternatively, our elliptical transducers are particularly suited for fixed location horizontal monitoring of fish movement.
