Place the Simrad PX TrawlEye on the headrope of your bottom trawl, or in the intermediate section of your pelagic trawl, to provide a crisp and detailed presentation of the fish in the trawl, the bottom conditions and the status of your gear.
The Simrad PX TrawlEye provides a real-time echogram from the trawl using the wireless link. The sensor is equipped with a composite echo sounder transducer enabling advanced LFM pulses (Linear Frequency Modulation, also known as “Chirp”). The echo sounder can be configured to suit various fisheries. You can change pulse length, pulse type, sounder gain, echo range, communication power and other operational parameters.
In order to receive the information from the sensor you need a suitable receiver. The PX TrawlEye data can not be received by the PI50 or PI60 receivers, you need a dedicated receiver; the SR70. You also need one or more hydrophones, as well as a computer running the Simrad TV80program.
You can use all our PI Hydrophones. You can even use non-Simrad types, provided that the communication frequency match.
By default, the sensor can make two measurements. To add additional measurements you must buy a dedicated license. The license allows you to make up to five measurements simultaneously.
