Sonardyne Compatt 6 USBL LBL Transponder

The Sonardyne Compatt 6 transponder is fully compatible with all 6G equipment and Sonardyne’s latest 6G LBL and USBL systems. Sonardyne Compatt 6 offers significant time saving using faster and more robust Sonardyne Wideband 2 acoustic ranging and telemetry protocols. This makes any system operating with Compatt 6 significantly easier to operate therefore reducing risk on operations reducing vessel time and reducing training requirements for offshore personnel. 

The Type 8300 Compatt 6 is the standard length version and is based on the field proven mechanics of Compatt 5 with improvements to the end cap closure mechanisms. The design offers the perfect balance between size, acoustic output and battery life. Several depth ratings are available: 3000 meters, 5000 meters and 7000 meters all hard anodised aluminium alloy with protective polyurethane sleeve. Applications include Long baseline positioning, Spool piece metrology, Pipeline lay down and Subsea structure placement.
