Sonardyne Wideband Mini Transponder

Sonardyne’s existing Wideband Sub Mini Transponder is typically interrogated by a responder trigger sent down the ROVs umbilical or a narrow band tone signal. In some situations reverberation or multipath tone interrogation can cause interference problems. The Sonardyne Wideband Mini Transponder is Sonardyne’s first mini sized transponder. It is slightly larger than the Wideband Sub Mini Transponder and provides full two-way Wideband interrogation and reply which completely mitigates interference from and to other users.

For use on ROVs, the Sonardyne Wideband Mini Transponder includes responder trigger an integrated rechargeable Li-ion battery pack that is charged from the ROV’s power supply and full RS232 communications enabling channel set up, power and gain etc. to be changed from the surface. The Wideband Mini Transponder is available in three depth versions: 3000 meters, 5000 meters and 7000 meters. The 5000 meters and 7000 meters versions have a higher acoustic output power level for improved long range operation.
