Raytheon Offers High-Res Digital Data From Portable Unit

Raytheon's DE719D MK2 is a state-of-the-art electronic survey instrument used to generate precision depth recordings and digital data output. Low power consumption, portability, ease of use, rugged construction and built-in communication interfaces for navigation/data logging devices reportedly make the DE719D MK2 ideal for field use. The instrument is housed within a splash-proof aluminum enclosure and comes complete with a 200 Khz transducer and an integral thermal chart enclosure recording mechanism. Digital processing enables the instrument to offer automatic bottom digitizing capabilities. When interfaced to an NMEA 0183-compatible position sensor, the DE719D MK2 reportedly provides the user with a complete, integrated hydrographic survey environment. The instrument features a built-in digitizer with RS232 and RS422 data output interface ports; user-selectable DC or AC input power; automatic chart annotation for date, time, depth and position data; nonvolatile internal clock and important parameter setup memory; and remote even mark input.
