The all new 3000-Watt Interphase iScan 180 uses two phased array transducers with no moving parts. One transducer is mounted on either side of the vessel's keel to enable a full 180-degree horizontal scan sector (90-degrees each side of the vessels bow) and allows for easy installation on trawlers, large cruising sailboats and other vessels with deep, or full keels.
Working like an acoustic underwater radar, the new Interphase iScan 180 can function in three useful modes. The Forward Vertical Scanning mode shows a view from the surface directly ahead of the vessel to the bottom below and is very useful for monitoring changing bottom conditions and detecting fish or other obstacles. In the Forward Horizontal Scanning mode, the Interphase iScan 180 uses two electronically linked transducers to smoothly steer a searchlight-like beam over a full 180-degrees. In either mode the beam can be steered directly down to view either a split or full-screen conventional downlooking depthsounder view.
With 3,000 watts of peak-to-peak power and ranges up to 1,200 feet ahead, the Interphase iScan 180 is a truly unique tool for detecting hazards like submerged shipping containers, "deadheads," rock pinnacles, coral reefs and shallow water conditions and the 180-degree horizontal scan mode is ideal for following channels or finding safe passage through reefs.
The SE-200 Sonar Engine, introduced earlier this year, is the
industry's first "black-box" forward looking sonar with simultaneous VGA and
composite video outputs. Forward looking sonar allows boaters to view the
underwater area ahead of the vessel to help navigate shallow channels, warn
of shallowing bottom conditions, the presence of underwater objects
including rocks, reefs and schools of bait and fish.
