The Release Transponder 6 (RT 6-3000) is a tough, reliable acoustic release transponder designed for a wide variety of subsea applications. It has full 6G capabilities, meaning that it can be tracked and released using all Ranger 2 6G USBL systems or a deck unit with remote dunking transducer. The maximum slant range for operation is dependent on the noise environment and topside used; however, ranges to 4,500 metres should normally be achievable.
Standard features include a Working Load Limit of 1,275 kg (at 4:1) and a spring-assisted release mechanism. RT 6-3000 is compatible with our standard tandem and high-load release frames.
A Battery Disconnect Fob is located on the transducer and uses an internal magnetic switch to electronically disconnect the battery when not in use.
RT 6-3000 is configured with our iWand hand-held acoustic transponder test and configuration device.
