Part of Sonardyne’s Coastal Acoustic  Product Range, the Type 7967  OBC/LRT Deck Unit is used to  command and programme  Sonardyne’s range of TZ/OBC  transponders and Lightweight  Release Transponders (LRTs). It  comprises of a deck unit and  dunking transducer supplied with 10  metres of cable.

The deck unit is used initially to  program the acoustic identity of the  transponder, test the transponder  and, in the case of the LRT, load the  release ‘bit’ prior to deployment.  Once deployed, it can be used to  measure ranges to the transponder  and prior to sending a secure release  command, relocate the transponder.  The deck unit can also be controlled  via RS232 enabling raw range data  to be logged to a PC for processing.
