Sail-World.com : Lowrance’s new sonar optimiser technology

Lowrance’s new sonar optimiser technology

'Lowrance sonar optimser'   

Lowrance has raised the bar in fish-finding technology with its next-generation sonar ‘optimiser’.

Based on the high-speed Lowrance Ethernet network, the new Broadband Sounder-1 delivers peerless echo clarity and the highest underwater definition ever achieved – in both freshwater and saltwater, from shallow water through to extreme sea depths.

The module automatically produces digitally purified marking and separation of fish, structure, thermoclines and bottom, with remarkable elimination of surface and turbulent water clutter to mark targets. For fishing enthusiasts, the result is outstanding clarity when it comes to locating and tracking the next catch.

Featuring an advanced plug-and-play Ethernet module, the Broadband Sounder-1 combines superior Lowrance software-driven technology and high-speed signal processing.

The module is compatible with all Lowrance 2007 models with 12.7cm and larger colour displays, along with the five-pin yellow Ethernet connector. That includes all LCX and LMS models, as well as displaying sonar graphs on GlobalMap® chartplotters networked with a sonar-enabled head unit.

The Broadband Sounder-1 also works with all compatible Lowrance transducers – Skimmer®, pod, shoot-or bolt-thru hull – and accommodates all transducer-frequency ranges: 50kHz, 83kHz and 200kHz.

The enhanced digital module also features a nominal output power of 250-watts peak-to-peak (31 watts RMS), with an analogue output power equivalent of 30,000 watts peak-to-peak (3750 watts RMS).

The Broadband Sounder-1 offers direct connectivity between a transducer and a single sonar-equipped Lowrance head unit, as well as connectivity between a transducer and multiple Lowrance head units using the new, optional Navico Expansion Port-1.

The plug-and-play Navico Expansion Port-1 network switch allows optimised sonar sharing for up to four compatible Lowrance display devices on the Lowrance Ethernet network, including 2007 GlobalMap chartplotters, when employed with the Broadband Sounder-1. It also allows linkage to other Expansion Port-1 modules for future onboard network expansion.

Both the Broadband Sounder-1 and Navico Expansion Port-1 feature ports that resist corrosive marine environments and come with a full two-year warranty.

Broadband Sounder-1 – RRP $999, Expansion Port – RRP $299.
