How can we help?

Has anyone ever installed an echosounder and Ranger 2 USBL transceiver directly beside each other? Would this work?

24 June 2021

Your echosounder could affect USBL performance so use the Acoustic Signal Analysis and Noise Plot tools available in Ranger to identify potential issues.

The Signal Analysis Tool, within you’re Ranger 2 software, allows you to identify and diagnose ‘False Detections’ caused by the echosounder and to then take steps to minimise this. The Noise Plot Tool allows you to analyse the background noise to which the USBL transceiver is exposed. Take various noise profiles under different operating configurations, for example, with the echosounder on and off. These will give you a good idea of the power and gain settings to use, the maximum range you can expect to achieve and the beacon power settings. If you are in any doubt, please feel free to send through the screenshots and we will look at them.
