Description

The Sonardyne Mini Compact 6 is the smallest in the range of Sonardyne Compatt 6 transponders. The design offers the user a lightweight unit with the same acoustic output power as a standard sized unit, but without the integrated sensor system. The mechanical design is based on the field proven Compatt 5. Its size is perfectly suited to deep water vehicle navigation and telemetry applications. 

Sonardyne Mini Compact 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 Mini Compact 6 version is particularly suited to smaller ROVs and Towed bodies as well as metrology applications due to shorter lever arms betweens sensors and the acoustic transducer.  Several depth ratings are available: 3000m, 5000m and 7000m, all hard anodised aluminium alloy with protective polyurethane sleeve.
