Tritech Micron Echo Sounder – Ultra Compact Altimeter

The Tritech Micron Echo Sounder is the latest addition to Tritech’s family of Micron products and sets new standards in ultra compact sonar technology.



The Micron Echosounder utilises Digital Sonar Technology (DST) and is designed to complement the Micron sonar. The Micron Echosounder can also act as a stand-alone altimeter, providing accurate height off the seabed and other subsea distance measurements.
The Micron Echosounder is a robust professional offshore or freshwater altimeter, built to the highest quality standards. It is optimised for operation on small vehicles, as it is both compact and very lightweight in water.

It is an ideal OEM product, being able to accommodate a wide range of voltage inputs. Other options such as increased depth rating are available upon request.
