S5100 Sounder with CHIRP
The S5100 high-performance CHIRP echosounder module features three fully independent channels able to deliver simultaneous, high-resolution coverage across multiple depth ranges. Advanced processing technology delivers noise-free clarity at all ranges, and maintains a solid bottom lock while travelling at speed. Combine wide and narrow transducer beam-widths to reveal more fish, pinpoint small and tightly spaced fish, and identify thermoclines; or select specific CHIRP frequencies from 28 to 250 kHz to precisely target specific depths with clear target separation. Three fully independent sonar channels deliver high-resolution coverage Noise-free clarity at all depth ranges Combine any three frequency ranges to target multiple depths, including Ultra-Low, Low, Medium, or High CHIRP Compatible with wide-angle CHIRP transducers for greater coverage of the water column Simultaneous split-screen viewing of multiple depth ranges on any compatible Simrad display Maximum power output 3 kW RMS (transducer dependent) Easy to install or retrofit with three plug-and-play 9-pin transducer connectors Compatible with Simrad NSS evo3 and NSS evo2 multifunction displays, NSO evo2 systems, and S2000-series fish finders
Three Independent Channels
The S5100 is the first Simrad sounder module to feature three fully independent sonar channels, delivering true simultaneous coverage of up to three different depth ranges with uncompromising performance at every range. Connect three single-channel transducers, or pair one dual-channel and one single-channel, to create the perfect echosounder coverage for any professional fishing application.
CHIRP sonar uses frequency-swept pulses to provide improved target resolution and noise rejection compared to traditional single-frequency sonar. The S5100’s advanced CHIRP technology provides a clear view to the bottom with no mid-water noise or clutter.
Wide-Angle Transducer Support
The Simrad S5100 is compatible with Airmar’s wide‐angle CHIRP series of transducers. These are a perfect fit for targeting pelagic species, with enhanced coverage of the upper water column. Wide-angle transducers are also useful in shallow water, where traditional narrow beam angles can provide limited bottom coverage.
Simultaneous Split-Screen Viewing
View multiple depth ranges simultaneously in customisable “split-screen” configuration. Because all three sonar channels are completely independent, different frequency ranges can be viewed simultaneously in real-time on a single display.
Plug-and-Play Multifunction Display Compatibility
The S5100 module connects to Simrad NSS evo3 and NSS evo2 multifunction displays, NSO evo2 glass bridge systems, and S2000-series fish finders. High-speed, long-distance Ethernet connectivity enables easy installation almost anywhere on board, and easy connection to remote displays aboard larger vessels. An S5100 module can be used to add echosounder capabilities to a modular NSO evo2 system, or to provide additional echosounder capabilities on integrated displays with built-in sounder technology.
Note: The S5100 is not recommended for use with older Simrad multi-function displays including: NSO Gen1, NSS Sport and NSE
