The General Purpose Transceiver (GPT)
is generic transmitter and receiver unit provided for fish finding
and scientific echo sounders.
It is currently put to use with
the following Simrad echo sounder systems:
- Simrad ES60
- Simrad ES70
- Simrad EK60
- Simrad EY60
The General Purpose Transceiver (GPT) contains the transmission
and reception circuitry for the echo sounder. It supports several
configurations to suit your specific operational requirements, and
it can be fitted for single beam and split beam operations with a
large combination of frequencies.
The GPT communicates with
the topside computer by means of an ethernet cable. This means that
the GPT can be physically located a long distance away from the computer.
- Width: 284 mm
- Height: 112 mm
- Depth: 246 mm
The basic General Purpose Transceiver
(GPT) holds a power supply and an interface board. In addition, you
can add up to four transceiver bords of various types and frequencies.
Using combinations of these transceiver boards, the GPT can be set
up to suit your specific needs.
Multiple GPTs in use
large systems, more than one GPT can be put to use. On such systems,
all the GPTs are connected to the same Processor Unit through an Ethernet
