Underwater Altimeters & Ultrasonic Depth Sensors

200m Mini Altimeter Kit Smart™ Sensor

Underwater/Subsea altimeter kit for AUVs, ROVs

EchoRange Mini Underwater Altimeter KitThe 200m Mini Altimeter Kit Smart™ Sensor is specially designed for AUVs, ROVs and marine robotics platforms. The kit consists of a compact transceiver board to be mounted on the vessel’s electronics chassis, and a separate underwater transducer that can withstand depths of up to 1000m.

The subsea altimeter can be programmed to operate in manual or fully automatic sounding modes. In full auto mode, sounding rate is variable with depth, while manual mode allows a configurable rate of up to 10 times per second.
