|Echopilot FLS 2D-R c/w Professional Transducer
Echopilot FLS Professional Transducer:
Optional with Echopilot FLS 2D Repeater available
The Echopilot FLS 2D offers all the best features of the EchoPilot forward looking sonar displayed on a full colour, 7 inch TFT LCD display.
The benefits of colour on the Echopilot FLS 2D, apart from just being visually more pleasing, include being able to gain much more information about the nature of the seabed. Stronger echos produce colours at the red end of the spectrum where as weaker echos are at the blue end of the spectrum. This gives the user more information about the nature of the seabed on the Echopilot FLS 2D.
Stronger echos will result from a hard seabed such as rock. Weak echos will be received from softer materials such as sand or mud. Different fields or types of information are shown in contrasting colours, enabling the navigator to assimilate information much faster.
Simple digital sounders show historical data, they may show a depth which is 10 to 15 seconds out of date. If moving at speed this depth could easily be hundreds of meters behind you. The digital depth on the Echopilot FLS 2D is an average of the first one third of the screen ahead, updated twice every second for true real time information. If you are moving this gives you a far more accurate representation of what is actually beneath your boat right now.
The Echopilot FLS 2D is available with EchoPilot’s Standard or Professional model through hull transducer. 2m transducer cable is standard, with 10m extension cable. The transducer must be mounted vertically.
The professional transducer, with larger crystal, has a narrower beam giving slightly greater range and better dimension. (However, compared side by side, the standard picture often looks better as it’s like painting with a broad paint brush). The professional transducer is bronze with a slightly larger face and requires 60mm / 2 3/8” hole diameter. Operating Frequency: 200 kHz
