The Release Transponder 6 (RT 6–6000) is a tough, reliable oceanographic release transponder designed for a wide variety of subsea applications. It’s LMF transducer and 6,000 metre depth rating makes it perfect for operating in deeper water offshore. It has full 6G capabilities, meaning that it can be tracked and released using any Ranger 2 6G USBL system or a low-cost deck command unit with remote dunking transducer on a 10 metre cable. Standard features include a Working Load Limit of 1,275 kg (at 4:1) and a spring-assisted release mechanism. RT 6–6000 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 6–6000 is configured with our iWand hand-held acoustic transponder test and configuration device.
