You can connect the plug directly to the hydrophone connector on the
rear side of the PI operator unit or receiver, and lower the hydrophone
over the rail.
The portable hydrophone is thus designed as a
temporary measure until a fixed hydrophone can be installed at the
vessel’s next planned dry docking.
It has an omnidirectional
beam and a 50 meter integrated cable.
The cable is sheathed
in polyurethane providing robust external protection to compliment
its 150 kg tensile strength. The cable is supplied on a reel for convenient
retrieval and stowage, and is equipped with a plug for easy attachment
to the catch monitoring system's receiver.
