852-GS

GYRO STABILIZED ULTRA-MINIATURE IMAGING SONAR

The Imagenex Model 852-GS was designed for use with the smallest of ROV's and inspection vehicles. Gyro-stabilization is integrated directly into the sonar head, so the sonar is no longer compromised by the blurring effects of host vehicle rotation.

Connect the optional echo sounder to the sonar and straight to the surface.

Serial communication is utilized, RS-485 or RS-232 at 115.2 kbps. This unit will scan 360° with a maximum range of 50 meters.
