They are extremely easy to use simply requiring the unit to be powered on to commence operation.
The depth sounders are independently powered by an internal lithium battery providing more than 10 hours of continuous operation.
Position and Depth data is logged to any external logging device running Carlson SurvCE software. They provide standard depth string streams in $SDDPT, $SDDBT and $YXMTW at 1Hz, 4800 bps which makes the SatLab SLD-100 & SLD-200 compatible with any Hydrographic Surveying Software.
Mounting accessories for the SatLab SLD-100 & SLD-200 transducers are included in the package making it simple to mount the sounder and to attach an Altus APS3G RTK GNSS receiver.
The SatLab SLD-100 & SLD-200 housings are environmentally sealed to a rating of IP65 making it operational in the most challenging environments.
