Simrad SonarHub™ Sounder Module
Compatible with all Simrad NS series multifunction displays, this plug-and-play network solution adds CHIRP/traditional sonar to clearly identify fish targets and accurately chart depth, plus Simrad’s advanced StructureScan HD imaging for a panoramic view of the water column and seafloor. Suitable for fishing vessels, patrol boats, and many other workboats, SonarHub makes it easier than ever to identify productive fishing areas, find anchorages, survey submerged structures, or rapidly eliminate search areas before sending divers into the water. Compact all-in-one module delivers StructureScan HD and CHIRP broadband/traditional narrowband sonar technologies CHIRP delivers improved target resolution and noise rejection, with wide coverage for perfect arches that clearly identify fish targets StructureScan HD offers best-in-class side-scanning range and resolution, plus DownScan Imaging to provide crystal-clear, picture-like views of what’s beneath a boat Support for a wide range of transducers: Broadband 40-60kHz, 85-145kHz, 130-210kHz Narrowband 50kHz, 83kHz, 200kHz CHIRP range up to 1,067m / 3,500ft (transducer dependent), StructureScan HD up to 91m / 300ft Plug-and-play compatibility with Simrad Professional Series NSE, NSO, and NSO evo2 multifunction displays Three built-in Ethernet ports allow connection to multiple Simrad MFDs without an additional networking module Supported by the Simrad Advantage Service program
The compact Simrad SonarHub module provides an all-in-one solution to add StructureScan HD imaging and CHIRP broadband sonar capabilities to Simrad Professional Series NSE, NSO, and NSO evo2 multifunction displays.
Simrad StructureScan HD
StructureScan HD combines SideScan and DownScan sonar technologies to provide a panoramic view to the left, right, and directly beneath your vessel, in picture-perfect detail and to a maximum depth of 91m / 300ft.
With StructureScan HD, professional fishers can easily locate edges, channels, drop-offs and wrecks where fish conceal themselves, for a superior fishfinding experience.
Patrol boats can conduct underwater searches with unprecedented speed, thanks to StructureScan HD’s easily-interpreted, true-to-life images. Search a 200m by 200m area in less than an hour, before you put divers into the water.
CHIRP Broadband SONAR
Compression Modulation (CHIRP) technology delivers improved echosounder performance over all depth ranges, up to a maximum of 1,067m / 3,000ft (transducer dependent).
With lower power output and higher frequency than traditional sonar, CHIRP ‘whispers’ into the water, helping to locate fish without disturbance. CHIRP also offers lower power consumption than traditional sonar, ideal for smaller vessels.
Choose any single-channel CHIRP transducer that best suits your vessel’s design and purpose, with frequencies available for optimal inshore, offshore, or combined usage.
Simrad and AIRMAR Transducer Support
SonarHub provides ports for two transducers: one broadband CHIRP (40-60kHz, 85-145kHz, 130-210kHz) or traditional narrowband (50kHz, 83kHz, 200kHz), and one StructureScan HD (455/800kHz).
Compatible Simrad and AIRMAR transducers are sold separately.
Three built-in Ethernet ports allow connection to multiple Simrad MFDs, without the need for a separate Ethernet switch.
These ports can also be used to link other performance modules such as 4G Broadband Radar or WiFi-1 wireless networking to a connected MFD, minimising installation complexity and limiting cost on simpler installations.
