Simrad launches S3009 navigation echosounder

(EGERSUND, Norway) — Simrad Commercial has launched the Simrad S3009, a commercial-grade navigation echosounder that meets the requirements for a depth under keel display and logging system for SOLAS vessels. Two configurations are available: a single-transducer system for smaller vessels, and an expanded dual-transducer system for larger vessels that require separate bow and stern transducers.

The S3009 is designed for easy and cost-effective installation. The single-transducer system includes an all-in-one display and sonar module, while the dual-transducer system includes an Ethernet-connected sonar module that enables long cable runs between bridge display and sonar transducers. Standard 70-mm diameter transducers facilitate easy installation with existing tanks and gate valves.

A modern interface based on proven Simrad display technology means the S3009 is easy to operate, with quick access to common settings and sophisticated alert management.

The Simrad S3009 will be available from November 2017. For more information on the S3009 or other Simrad products for commercial vessels, visit
