AIRMAR Technology Corporation introduced the new M563, a dual-band CHIRP-ready broadband transducer designed for research and survey applications.

The acoustic performance of AIRMAR’s broadband piezoceramic transducers include extremely low-ringing and excellent sensitivity, resulting in optimal system performance including sharp, crisp acoustic pulses for improved clarity, resolution and measurement accuracy. The M563’s two broadband arrays deliver superior performance throughout low and high-frequency bands allowing operation at discrete frequencies, broadband CHIRP or coded waveforms. The unit is available with a low-band frequency range of 25 kHz to 45 kHz and high-band options of either 80 kHz to 130 kHz, 130 kHz, 130 kHz to 210 kHz, or 160 kHz to 260 kHz.

AIRMAR’s Transducer ID technology allows the M563 to provide important data to the echosounder including transducer model, functions, frequency, power rating, beam pattern, impedance and more. With this technology, the echosounder can configure itself to the transducer to optimize performance. The result is superior detection of targets, bottom composition and contour over a wide range of conditions. Transducer ID also offers OEMs self-diagnostic, troubleshooting and feedback capabilities.

The unit includes a high precision temperature probe that provides accurate temperature readings that can quickly detect small fluctuations in sea temperature.
