The Compatt 6 transponder is fully compatible with all 6G® equipment and Sonardyne’s latest 6G LBL and USBL systems.

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 operational risks, 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 m, 5000 m and 7000 m, all hard anodised aluminium alloy with protective polyurethane sleeve.
