Any chartplotter, radar, P.C. or screen with a video input can become a fully functional colour forward sonar. (See Diagram A) Owners who prefer separate displays have the option of an EchoPilot FLS Platinum colour screen at one steering position, and then through a Platinum Interface box display, the picture on any video enabled screen at the 2nd position. (See Diagram B) Forward Sonar enables the skipper to enter strange harbours or difficult anchorages with the extra safety of a view of the seabed and underwater obstructions ahead. Pilotage in unfamiliar or poorly charted waters, especially at night, becomes more relaxing. Alternatively for boats with 2 or more video enabled displays EchoPilot Video Boxes may be ‘daisychained’ to run 2 screens at different locations, each with its own keypad. (See Diagram C) EchoPilot’s Forward Sonar uses an electronically controlled array to scan the seabed from straight ahead through 90° to straight down, like an underwater radar. Example Screen Shots Raymarine and Garmin screens not included. Realtime Forward Sonar is a patented EchoPilot invention. This means that with the whole screen updating continuously should the boat turn towards an obstruction or bank this will appear almost immediately on the screen. (And will disappear as quickly when the boat turns towards safer waters). Note that a steered transmit phased array system offered by some other manufacturers may take a considerable time to update a full 90° sector. Easy installation involves a single, retractable transducer (normally with a bronze fitting but optionally aluminium or mild steel) and a short cable leading to a transmitter box. The close proximity of the transmitter box enhances performance and reduces noise. A simple Ethernet type cable, which may be extended from the standard 12m up to 100m, takes the display signal to a ‘Video Box’ with a remote keypad. The keypad operates the sonar part of the display without the need to use the plotter or radar controls of the display. Video output of both the composite type and S-Video are provided, along with all cables needed to attach to most video displays, marine or domestic. Special bespoke systems with pre-wired plugs and cable lengths to customer’s requirements are available – just ask us!
