New HD850 Precision Searchlight Sonar

Friday, January 02, 2009

The new HD850 series from Wesmar was installed aboard the F/V American Triumph.

“The Wesmar HD850 is working well, marking fish down 320 fathoms on 1200 meter range,” said Captain Eric of the American Triumph. Captain Sandy also adds, “The Wesmar HD850 is marking extremely well. Active stabilization consistently keeps the fish on the screen.”

The new trawlscan mode on the HD 850 shows more fishable area by keeping the sound beam out front. Features of the system include active stabilization, a digital link, and searchlight advantage.

The stabilization gyro, located in the soundome, makes corrections in the exact direction the transducer is looking, and as a result, keeps the sound beam on target.

The HD850’s digital link between the sonar transducer and the computer console in the wheelhouse, operates noise free for maximum sonar performance. 

One hundred percent of Wesmar’s transducer surface area points in the direction of the fish in a sharp, narrow beam. Dispersed fish and previously hard to mark fish are detected, clutter free.
