Hydrographic Troubleshooting and Maintenance
The EchoSim is a portable test and calibration instrument designed to simplify performance evaluation and troubleshooting of echosounders and transducers including KNUDSEN equipment. Its main functions are echo simulation, echosounder transmitter tests, and transducer tests. It currently supports a frequency range from 3.5kHz up to 24kHz and system output powers up to 10kW.
The EchoSim can assist with Installation and Checkout (INCO), Sea Acceptance Testing (SAT), Harbor Acceptance Testing (HAT), Fault Isolation, and System Verification. It is controlled through a Windows Graphical User Interface (GUI). The EchoSim is a USB device, allowing any computer with host USB port capabilities to serve as a user interface.
