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.
